About US

The compassion project grew out of an interest to solve a problem in our own professional lives. As helpers, we often faced the struggle of how to access support without having to go to the trouble to actually find support. ​Often those who are qualified to support us are our coworkers or colleagues in the field. 

We are from a variety of professional backgrounds and have experience and expertise in understanding and treating the impact of trauma. If you are a person who has experienced trauma we understand that you may have spent a lifetime in therapy and haven't been able to get better.


If you are a therapist or counsellor we understand that you have knowledge about our tools and therapeutic processes. We are interested in learning more about what you do in your work but also we are interested in learning more about how we can support you with the impact of such work. 

If you are front line responders, police, fire or paramedical personnel, we appreciate that you may not feel comfortable accessing support or that you may feel isolated in your suffering. 

If you are healthcare providers we know how difficult your job is. The healthcare system is constantly evolving and changing. The demand for care is higher than ever. 

We get it. It can be impossible at times.
