Igniting Self-Compassion in Africa

Vulnerable populations in developing countries have little or no access to mindfulness and self-compassion practices, which limits their ability to support their mental health and wellbeing in dire circumstances. So it is with great joy and gratitude that thanks to a Compassion Corps Grant, I could start the 1st MSC Online Course in Africa (8 weeks), co-teaching with Dr. Susan Gitau, a Lecturer & Chair of the Counseling Department at Africa Nazarene University, Kenya, Accredited Senior Counselor Supervisor and Counseling Psychologist Consultant, Trauma Counseling Expert, Certified Mediator, MSC Teacher, and currently a participant in CMSC’s Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy (SCIP) Professional Training Program.
