What do others say about learning Self-Compassion from me?
Thankyou for all the ressources and support thoughout! Thank you & thank you for having been such a wonderful & outstanding instructor! I won't ever forget you and the impact this course has had on me!
I completed the survey and noticed there was not a question about the instructor. I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic and supportive Helle is. I wasn’t sure if this course was too “woo woo” and she immediately grounded that concern with her pragmatic yet gentle approach.
Her style made the content relatable and she truly reached the class in a way that enabled and sparked transformation. I am considering signing up again when the course is offered by her.

It was a privilege and enlightening experience to share this journey with you. Your wisdom and discernment simplified a foreign and difficult concept for me. It has made me want to explore MSC on a deeper level.

I want you to know how much I'm already getting out of this course. It's changed the way I think about myself, the way I talk to myself, and the way I treat myself.
I'm a longtime Buddhist meditator and this course has "warmed up" my approach to meditation and to life in general.
I am the Senior Psychologist for my organization and I practice therapy in our outpatient mental health clinic. I cannot recommend Helle’s Mindful Self-Compassion course highly enough. I came into the class with about 2.5 years of mindful self-compassion practice and her course significantly deepened my understanding of the concepts and my ability to practice self-compassion in the hustle and bustle of my daily life. I took the course in the live online format and loved being in a group with people from all over the world! I would strongly recommend this course for anyone working in medicine or healthcare or really any challenging field. I feel like I am much more able to connect to myself with warmth and compassion now and, because of that, am better able to connect with my partner, family, coworkers, and staff warmly and with compassion.

I was happily surprised by the warm feelings that the group was able to generate being so far away geographically. I have only words of gratitude and appreciation for you, your work, the structure of the course and each person in the class.
The atmosphere of compassion surrounded and supported my life during the course. It gave me a deep sense that this is how I want to live. I loved every practice and respectful sharing we did. The 'Compassion break' helped me especially to reduce my reactivity in difficult situations with my kids.

As a psychologist, compassion focused therapist and facilitator of compassionate mind training groups, I attended the LOMSC with a spirit of curiosity and to “perfect” my compassionate skills. I deeply appreciated Helle Laursen’s ability to convey the spirit of self-compassion, creating a safe digital space with attendants from all around the world, with respect and warmth, wisdom and playfulness. Once again, the glory of compassion showed me that perfecting my compassionate skills is about embracing my imperfections and building the courage of taking responsibly for them. I would love to participate again in this course! You have been a very skilful, sensitive and caring teacher. Thank you!
