Reignite your compassion

Redefine self-care

Reconnect with your authentic self

Are you in the business of helping others?

 

If so, you might have realized that sometimes it feels like there just isn't enough time, energy or drive to practice "self-care" after caring for others all day.


But you also know that you can’t pour from an empty cup...

This is the place where we can explore  sustainable solutions  so that you can
strive to be the awesome, compassionate helper that you are meant to be, and
still maintain your own wellness in the process. 

(and I'm talking about way more than just having a hot bubble bath once in awhile!)

Helping professionals encounter unique stressors in our work environments that can have significant impact on our psychological and emotional well-being. On a regular basis, we face systemic barriers, limited resources, unpredictable interactions, changing environments, clients with complex needs,

trauma exposure and critical incidents... just to name a few. With all of that, we show up with open, empathetic hearts and hold space for people as they go through their struggle. 

It can all take its toll on a helper and can sometimes lead to psychological and emotional health issues.

If you are a helper feeling burnt out and exhausted, know that you are not alone and you can get support here. 

Amanda and her Associates offer education, peer support, consulting and counselling for individuals and groups in helping professions of all kinds. If the work you do involves providing physical, psychological, intellectual, emotional,

and/or spiritual care for another, then I want to help you by providing the tools and knowledge

you need in order to do your work in a sustainable way.

Our Philosophy

Self-care is the deliberate practice of knowing your needs and desires, taking responsibility for them, and then living your life in a way that honours them.

Amanda and her team teach techniques to increase self-awareness, cultivate self-compassion, and integrate self-care into our helping roles and busy lives. It's way more complex than just having a hot bubble bath or taking a vacation once in awhile. Self-care is about intentionally creating and maintaining practices that help you sustain your energy, spirit, health and relationships.  

 

Attending to our needs with appropriate practices, interventions and support can significantly improve our well-being and, in turn, alter the systems in which we operate in. 

You are not alone.

We know the hardships of being a helping professional. We have spent decades in the field and have heard hundreds of stories very similar to ours and perhaps your own. We believe that through sharing our stories we can cultivate more awareness, compassion and community.
