Welcome to Compassionate Accompaniment CIC (Community Interest Company), a not for profit social enterprise. We are helping people to live with more compassion and kindness in themselves and their relationships. Whether we are experiencing isolation, anxiety, grief, loss, exhaustion, chronic illness, cancer, dying...we are connected and can find support. We offer 1:1 Compassionate Companion and group sessions for:
- self compassion/well being
- grief and loss
- end of life accompaniment
Compassionate Companion sessions can help you to create compassionate care practices that you can use daily. More and more studies are showing that compassionate care is hugely beneficial to our well being and can help to prevent illness and alleviate chronic health conditions. Compassionate Companion sessions can help bring kindness and gentleness to the relationship you have with yourself as well as relationships with others in your life.
Share Our Table Gatherings are held for self compassion, grief/loss, and also death/dying. Slowing down and coming together is not so readily available in many of our lives. Whether our table is in person or online, it represents the importance of coming together to share conversation, questions, ideas and to feel that we not alone. What we share together at the table is a crucial part of healing and support.
Being with animals has also become a growing part of our work. Animals can be like bridges that help humans to re-connect to themselves and the world around them. More and more research is showing how animals can assist us with calming our nervous systems, relieving depression and anxiety, and bringing a sense of connection and compassion with ourselves and other beings.
We are excited to be working with Canine Concern Scotland Trust's Therapet Visitng Service to provide support in homes, hospice, hospital and other environments. We are currently running a pilot project for this service. It will be launched in June 2023.
Compassionate Companion sessions and Share Our Table Gatherings help to restore a sense of belonging and connection in ourselves and our communities.
Caring for ourselves helps us to care for the world.
