Feel happier, calmer and more connected with The Self-Compassion App. Includes 50+ interactive tools for managing low self-esteem, anxiety, stress & depression.

The Self-Compassion App is for anyone who wants to feel happier, calmer and more connected. Whether you get caught up in cycles of stress and anxiety, regularly give yourself a hard time or struggle to relax and enjoy the moment – this app can help.

The app includes scientifically-validated ideas and practices from Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), with 50+ tools and exclusive practices to help you when life gets hard. Be guided by Drs Chris Irons and Elaine Beaumont – leading authorities on self-compassion - who collectively have 40+ years of experience as therapists and have helped tens of thousands of people.

This app has undergone a nationwide study, with participants showing significant reductions in stress, anxiety, self criticism, as well as increases in wellbeing. Anyone can develop self-compassion and enjoy all the benefits it brings – we’re looking forward to showing you how.

Why is self-compassion helpful?

We are often our own harshest critic, talking to ourselves in ways that we would never do our close friends. And given that we spend more time with ourselves than anyone else in life, isn’t it strange that many of us don’t treat ourselves with the same level of kindness, care and support as we do our close friends? But now is your time to start.
With evidence based ideas and exercises from CFT, this app will teach you how to cultivate compassion for yourself and others. Through the course, you’ll learn how to strike a balance between self improvement and self acceptance: teaching you how to have a realistic but kind view of difficulties that arise in life, and giving you the confidence you need to achieve your goals in life, work and relationships.

A toolkit for managing the ups and downs of life.
