Reignite your compassion
Reconnect with your authentic self
Are you in the business of helping others?
Do you provide care for a loved one?
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!)
I'm Amanda Rocheleau, registered clinical social worker, compassion fatigue specialist and public speaker.
I am committed to supporting caregivers in finding ways to continue to compassionately
provide care for others while also caring for themselves.
I provide one-on-one counselling to helping professionals and personal caregivers who are experiencing exhaustion, frustration, burnout, secondary traumatic stress and/or compassion fatigue.
I also offer speeches, workshops and training sessions to various organizations and groups who want to address occupational stress for their staff and volunteers.
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.
I 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.
