Welcome to Compassionate Accompaniment CIC (Community Interest Company), a not for profit social enterprise created to offer additional guidance and support for health and well being to individuals and communities.
Who is this for? People who want to find ways to care for themselves. For those who feel isolated and want to connect with their community. For anyone wanting support for grief, as a caregiver or with end of life care.
Accompanying ourselves and each other with compassion helps us to slow down, to feel seen and heard, to listen, to feel connected.
Caring for ourselves helps us to care for the world.

Misty is the founder and director of Compassionate Accompaniment CIC, a not for profit social enterprise that offers compassionate care and guidance for health and well being to individuals and communities.
“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."
"I found the Compassionate Companion sessions very therapeutic. They would always leave me calm and quietened. Physically the somatic movement sessions would result in improved balance, smoother joint mobility and a sense of decompression. There is also the therapeutic presence Misty offers. Whether it be an encouraging touch or an encouraging space to express and release tension."

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 are so grateful to Firstport for their ongoing support.
