#29 Turning your inner critic into your supporter with self compassion

Using Self Compassion to turn your inner critic into your biggest supporter

I am speaking with a blog writer, an author and founder of #365daysofcompassion, which is an online global community of people sharing thoughts, reflections and information about compassion and well-being. With a particular emphasis on compassion focused therapy and compassionate mind training, this champion of self compassion has created an amazing online space for people to come together, to be open, vulnerable and courageous.

I first met him online a couple of years ago when he began sharing his blog posts about his experience of living with depression. We later got together to create and publish an ebook, called the Five Self Compassionate Ways to manage depression and boost your wellbeing. I know he is a much respected human and contributer to the development of self-compassion worldwide. His name is Chris Winson.
