Compassion should be one of our values, as it is integral to all that we do. Treating patients isn't where it ends, we must show compassion for their worries, fears, their families and the position they are in, which often can feel quite scary and hopeless for them. If we can't show compassion we are in the wrong industry.

    Compassion enables a therapeutic relationship.
    Opens the mind of the practitioner making negative judging of clients impossible, as compassion seeks to understand the client rather than pidgin hole or victim blame clients.

    We must also commit to self-compassion - it is difficult to demonstrate compassion to others, patients, staff others, if we are not self-compassionate and self-caring.
