The MARI Psychological Clinic is offering a Learn to Practice Self Compassion Group beginning in May 2024. The group is for those who struggle with intense self-criticism, as well as related mental health challenges like anxiety and depression. This group helps participants learn the practice of enhancing one’s emotional well-being by acting kindly toward ourselves.

What to Expect

The MARI Self-Compassion group includes a mix of psycho-education, group discussions, and experiential exercises aimed at helping participants manage painful emotions and life’s difficulties through the cultivation and practice of self-compassion. 

The group will meet virtually (via Zoom) from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursdays, for eight weeks. Referrals are welcome. Each participant will be asked to complete a screening appointment before the group begins.
