Review of Achieving Self-Compassion:

"Achieving Self-Compassion" is truly a treasure. Nate Terrell shares his wisdom with the reader in easily digestible pieces, making it an enjoyable, engaging and informative read! He writes with humility and authenticity, sharing experiences from his own life with his family and clients, and  imbues his love into this book, so you feel wrapped up in his compassion.  I cannot recommend this book highly enough! Thank you so much, Nate, for sharing this powerful book with us all! I will be returning to this book often to remind myself of these important lessons."
