Wellspring of Compassion is a treasure. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and recovering now as an adult, I find it extremely comforting and helpful. It is written in a gentle tone, has many helpful suggestions of exercises to do as well as explanations about trauma. I return to it again and again to help me with increasing self-care, self-compassion and extending kindness towards myself. I wholeheartedly recommend it as a validating and comforting healing companion that will help you to be kind to yourself as you heal from abuse.
