COVID-19 For Helpers and Healers: Wellness and Self-Care Services
~ Group and Individual Telehealth Sessions for Helping Professionals and Healers in the medical, mental health, social service, and related fields~
Group and Individual Telehealth Sessions for Health and Wellness Professionals
Whether we are working in private practice or within an agency or organization, whether we are located in Minnesota or another part of the country or world, whether we are “essential” front liners or working from home, we all are scrambling to help our clients and patients as best as we can.
Personally we, just like our clients and patients, are trying to adjust to this seemingly daily changing “new normal” of ambiguity that is driven by COVID-19. We have our own fears, worries and anxieties about the psychological and emotional wellness, financial security, and physical health of ourselves, our families, our colleagues, and the state of the world. We will, if we don’t already, know someone who will fall ill, or already has, or worse.
As whole beings, especially during such uncertain times, it may become increasingly more exhausting for us to try to authentically compartmentalize our personal worries, grief and fears from our professional stressors of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, moral injury and exhaustion.
Caring for ourselves in a sustainable way, means that we need to heed the advice that we give to our clients and patients every day: It is imperative that we take good, consistent, intentional care of ourselves.
