Self care workshop for workplace wellbeing

In our workplaces, our focus is usually on our clients and productivity, not on ourselves. With increasingly demanding work environments and without balance between self and other, stress can rob one’s energy, optimism, efficiency, health and joy – leading to burnout!

The good news is that this potential hazard can be avoided.

About the workshop

This half day course Avoiding Burnout – Self Care for Workplace Wellbeing draws on the process of compassionate communication, often known as nonviolent communication (or NVC) to provide practical strategies for strong and resilient emotional wellbeing and balance.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • How to identify with clarity and awareness
  • Their own wellbeing needs and how to meet them effectively
  • Skills in setting boundaries and realistic limits to assists with ongoing self care

This course provides the practical and effective self care skills necessary for us to thrive in our workplaces and feel healthy, fulfilled and engaged – to avoid burnout. The learning environment is safe, stimulating and fun. The content is practical, relevant and effective.
