What is self-love?
Self-love is a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support our physical, psychological and mental wellbeing. Self-love means having a high regard for your own health and happiness. Self-love means taking care of your own needs and not sacrificing your well-being to please others. Self-love means not settling for less than you deserve.
Why is self-love so important?
Self-love means that you accept yourself fully, treat yourself with kindness and respect, and nurture your growth and wellbeing.
Self-love encompasses not only how you treat yourself but also your thoughts and feelings about yourself.
When you love yourself, you have an overall positive view of yourself. This doesn’t mean you feel positive about yourself all the time. That would be unrealistic! For example, I can temporarily feel upset, angry, or disappointed with myself and still love myself.
Self-love is the foundation that allows us to be assertive, set boundaries and create healthy relationships with others, practice self-care, pursue our interests and goals, and feel proud of who we are.
Self-love is one of the corner stones of mental health.
Why this course?
In my private practice as a Positive Psychologist and Trauma Therapy Practitioner, I have come to understand that a lot of the mental health challenges people face are rooted in a lack of self-love. I have also noticed that my clients’ mental health improves dramatically once they start to practice self-love.
Self-love needs to be learned - for most people it is not something that we acquire naturally in life.
I have therefore created this course so that anybody can learn self-love, whether you are struggling with mental health issues or not.
Self-love is a quintessential life skill that everyone should be taught from an early age. It is the basis for self-esteem and self-confidence and for living a fulfilled life.
Who is this course for?
This course is for absolutely everybody! Learn self-love and then teach it to your kids, your partners, your family, your friends.
Let’s start a lovelution!
Lesson 1: Silencing your Inner Critic (30th January)
The first step towards self-love is to consciously meet your inner critic. What does he say, in what circumstances and for what purpose? The inner critic really is a way to protect ourselves, but being critical is not the best way to do that. In this lesson, you will learn to meet your critic in a safe environment, learn to understand it, and find better ways to protect yourself.
Lesson 2: Practicing Self-compassion (27th February)
The second step towards self-love is to learn self-compassion. Self-compassion, in a nutshell, is self-kindness; it is learning to be kind to yourself when you are going through a difficult time, instead of being harsh to yourself. In this lesson, you will learn a number of practices form the science of self-compassion and how to apply them in your daily life.
Lesson 3: Cultivating the feeling of self-love (20th March)
Self-love is not just a mental concept – it is above all an embodied feeling. In this lesson, you will learn how to cultivate this feeling and integrate it into your nervous system, so you can draw from its strength when times get tough.
Lesson 4: Fierce Self-Love(24th April)
Self-love does not mean being too soft and lazy with yourself. Sometimes, we need to kick our own butts and practice fierce self-love – the more masculine side of self-love. In this lesson, you will learn how to be fierce with yourself all-the-while remaining kind to yourself; without falling back into self-criticism.
Lesson 5: Setting healthy boundaries - No more people-pleasing (29th May)
Once you’ve learned how to be fierce with yourself, it’s time to learn how to be fierce with others; i.e. how to set healthy boundaries. In this lesson, you will learn how to stop people-pleasing and how to stand up for yourself calmly but in a determined way.
Lesson 6: Loving me, loving you – creating healthy relationships (19th June)
Let’s face it – relationships are hard! But once we have learned how to love ourselves, they get a lot easier. In this lesson, you will learn how to apply all the practices you have learnt in the previous lessons to your relationships, whether they be romantic, friendly or professional, so that your relationship with others can become as harmonious as your relationship with yourself.
