Case study - AgeUK Lewisham

AgeUK Lewisham got in touch wanting me to help some of their staff better manage the stress involved with looking after a vulnerable population. I put a proposal together outlining potential workshops lasting a day, half a day or 90 minutes.

They opted for the half day workshop and I went to south London to work with the small team. As well as some psychoeducation around what happens to the body and brain when we're stressed, I shared several self-care tools, also facilitating a space for them to share with each other. They were already a cohesive team and were willing to experiment with a wide range of tools including some NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), yoga and mindfulness.

'A big thank you from the team for your session,' said their manager, Camilla Biggs, afterwards. 'There was a lot of really positive feedback and people wanted me to pass on how useful and very personalised to their individual roles and feelings on techniques for self-care you were.'

It was a pleasure working with them.

 

I love supporting people like you (from the obvious like teachers, medical professionals, therapists, coaches, complementary therapists and energy workers to accountants, driving instructors, lawyers and even people who don't necessarily work in helping industries but parents who sometimes forget to take good care of themselves).

As well as working with individuals, I've been brought into organisations (from schools and professional membership organisations who want to support their members to an investment bank) teaching practical tools you can start playing with immediately and which, with practice, can help you any time, any place.

You spend so much time and energy supporting your own patients, clients, students and so on, you sometimes need a reminder that you matter and it's time to improve your self-care.

I enjoy helping you better understand how to avoid burnout, feel more energised and work with your whole self to be more effective and at ease in your own skin.

If you still don't think prioritising your self-care is worth it, consider how much better you'll be able to serve your clients, patients and students etc, not to mention how you'll become better company for your loved ones.
