Do you:

  • Struggle with feelings of fear, self-criticism, lack of control, or even embarrassment that can accompany a chronic health condition? 

  • Struggle emotionally with the discomfort of physical symptoms or the restrictions of a special diet? 

  • Hyperfocus on how your body feels, functions, or looks because of your digestive condition? 

  • Yearn to feel more calm and patient while experiencing uncomfortable bodily sensations? 

  • Know that you need to build skills in self-acceptance, self-kindness, and resilience?

If you answered “YES” to one or more of the questions above, you’re not alone.

In this FREE WEBINAR, Clinical Psychologist Tara Cousineau, PhD, will explain how practices of mindfulness and self-compassion can offset self-criticism, increase positive emotions, and generally improve quality of life. 

Incorporating even brief moments of these practices into daily life can decrease reactivity to intense emotions, negative thoughts, and uncomfortable physical sensations, especially for those with chronic health conditions.

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Incorporate mindfulness into small moments of your daily life.

  • Reduce negative thoughts and emotions that often accompany chronic illness.

  • Take a self-compassion break.

  • Counteract common misgivings about practicing self-compassion.

  • Improve overall well-being and cultivate resilience.
