Mindfulness for the Movers and Shakers!!
I have offered Self-Care support for Therapists and other helping professionals on a one-on-one basis for the last five years. In 2018, I will be offering a Self Care Group designed specifically for Therapists and helping professionals. (More details to come soon).
If you are a Therapist or helping professional and feel you would benefit from mindful guidance towards better self-care, or if you're interested in traditional "talk-therapy" with me (although, my approach is anything but "traditional!"), 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 this group 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, this group 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.
