Tracy Brown is a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) who has been practicing in the Vancouver area for the last nine years. In 2013 she took the 8 week Mindful Self-Compassion program and realized it was exactly what her perfectionist and self critical clients could benefit from. Tracy continued her training in 2014 and became an MSC teacher and a daily self compassion practicer!
Alayna Fender is an online mental health and LGBT+ advocate, as well as a trained Mindful Self-Compassion teacher. Alayna has been creating content for her Alayna Joy YouTube channel since 2012. She brings her frank and funny perspectives to a wide range of topics, including mental health, sexuality, and general wellness. When she’s not creating videos, Alayna is speaking about Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, and sexuality in schools and clinics across North America.
Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think. Refer to the Updates page for the latest from Kristin and Chris.
