Nice to meet you.
My name is Franzi (Nickname from the German „Franziska“) As a coach & trainer, I specialize in mindfulness & self-compassion. The theory has a strong scientific background and serves more than just the pious wish for a better world.
There are now numerous evidence-based studies that even brought me - a kick-ass Ironman finisher- into contact with this exciting topic. In my past decade, self-compassion has been a loose phrase with no deeper meaning for me. Today, I do not want to go without.
For me personally, it was particularly important not to forfeit my ambitions. Not to demonize motivation and success-oriented goals, but to find a modern way to support me. There is no need to balance motivation (drive) against self-compassion. It will grow together.
Empathy starts with yourself. It's not about pity or "fixing". It's about your inner well-being.
Loving-kindness and self-compassion are terms for doing yourself good.
I have often been moved by the effect of this theory in practice. It is magical, for both, body and soul. And I am very sure it will be for you too.
