Mindfulness for the Movers and Shakers!!
Since opening my private practice in 2013, it has been my passion and pleasure to offer Self-Care support for Therapists and other helping professionals in both one-on-one and group settings. I am an advocate for good therapy; the greater ability a clinician has to remain grounded, balanced, and calm as an individual, the greater compassion s/he is able to offer to clients, to loved ones, and to the community at large.
If you are a Therapist or helping professional and feel you would benefit from mindful guidance towards better self-care, whether in a group or in one-on-one session with me, I invite you to contact me today! (817) 360-4462
Many of us help our clients every single day to decompress, gain greater clarity, and make significant shifts in their lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Though rewarding, this offering of our energies to others can be taxing on our own bodies on many levels. So, how do we self-care? How do we unwind from the intensity of our personal and client issues?
Some of what you can expect from our work together is:
--Building and stretching your Mindfulness Muscle
--Learning to create intentional space for your own inner and outer well-being
--Participation in various forms of Meditation
--Light Yoga therapy involving gentle and restorative yoga asanas (postures),
as well as breathing exercises and bodywork such as myofascial release
and other movement-based therapies for enhanced attunement and well-being
In addition to Mindfulness and Movement/Bodywork, the group setting will also serve to provide a safe space for Therapists to unwind and discuss challenges related to the Self-of-the-Therapist. My hope is that this group will allow for other Therapists to set aside some intentional time to not only receive and extend compassion and empathy to fellow colleagues, but also work on enhancing their own personal wellness.
