“The Compassionate Companion sessions with Misty became a weekly anchor during a busy period for me, and began a very rewarding path that I have followed since, exploring and connecting with my body through (somatic) movement. Apparently simple from the outside, the exercises shifted my attention to the body and breath in a way I hadn't experienced before."
"My mental health wellbeing improved...helped me to relax, built my self esteem again after a long period of feeling completely lost. I had been forced to give up my full time employment due to my cancer. I now have a sense of well being and a confidence again in my body that had been through so much."
"Misty instantly put me at ease and was very encouraging throughout the session. I can't praise her enough. She is a wonderful, inspirational person and an excellent Qi Gong teacher. Having someone encouraging me to listen to my body and pace myself was a huge relief. Mentally and emotionally it is so good to slow down and be aware of the slow gentle movements made by the body. I always feel a sense of calmness and peace afterwards."
When my husband of 50 years died I just felt like I was so lost and that I didn't know who I was anymore. I needed more support but my GP and friends didn't know what to do with me. The Compassionate Companion grief support with Misty has been a huge help and I can see who I am and what I want in my life now. I have more energy and am in my garden again. Even meeting up with old friends and remembering things I forgot. My grief has not ended but I am finding ways to live with it. Very grateful for the work that Compassionate Accompaniment and Misty are doing.

Compassionate companion sessions and Share Our Table Gatherings help to restore a sense of belonging and connection in ourselves and our communities. When we began to grow we needed some financial support to help reduce running costs. So in spring 2019 we applied to Firstport for funding to be able to offer more of these gatherings. We were awarded the funding! By July 2019 Compassionate Accompaniment became a registered CIC (Community Interest Company). We were also awarded the Build It fund in May 2022 to help us grow even more! We are so grateful to Firstport for their ongoing support.
