Compassion Development Programs

Virtual or in-person one-on-one and group sessions available.

Become more Resilient to Stress and prevent and alleviate burnout.

Focusing a lot of energy on others and/or our careers can lead to compassion fatigue also known as secondary traumatic stress. Secondary stress, for an individual, can lead to decreased feelings of safety, increased cynicism and disconnection from loved ones. For businesses it can result in employee health issues, lower productivity and higher turnover. For organizations employing healthcare professionals, compassion fatigue negatively impacts the quality of care provided.

Research suggests that individuals, leaders, employees, caregivers and healthcare professionals who are trained in self-compassion are less likely to experience compassion fatigue and/or burn out.

Virginia understands, first-hand, the stress and pressures placed on individuals and professionals. She was a full time litigation attorney and a single mom to very young children. She was a full-time caregiver to her husband for three years while at the same time parenting three teenagers and a toddler.

Through this program individuals can discover and come to understand self-compassion and how practicing it can improve their physical and psychological health and more.
