TRANSFORMATIVE PRACTICE AND THE ART OF THERAPIST SELF-CARE
SATURDAY 30TH MARCH 2019
MOSSLEY MILL, NEWTOWNABBEY
£60 INCLUDING LUNCH
Join me for a warm and welcoming day that focuses solely on your own self-care. As therapists we spend our time caring for others and this often extends to other parts of our life, as it is in our inherent nature to do so. This can lead to stress and a range of occupational hazards. Whilst we understand the importance of taking time to look after ourselves, the practice of self-care can often be minimised or all too often neglected. It can then become another thing on the “to do” list where it then becomes a chore or a duty. Taking care of ourselves should be central to all that we do and be a “way of being” allowing us to lead by example. This workshop is a gift to the self. You will learn not just about the negative impact of therapeutic practice but most importantly, how your practice can transform you in ways that are enriching and uplifting. Drawing upon theory, research and practice and informed by other cultural traditions, attending this workshop is an expression of self-care in itself. I look forward to seeing you there!
