This training experience will offer participants practical insight and knowledge about the negative side of empathy which can leave practitioners vulnerable to absorbing too much of the clients energy/story or experience and damaging a healthy interpersonal boundary between self and other. This leads to the potential for overwhelm secondary traumatisation.

Participants are invited to explore the somatic indicators and aspects of self-care. Self-care entails developing strategies for optimising health and well-being to prevent burnout and maintain the ability to work effectively with clients. This is an important aspect of self-care for counsellors, therapists and anyone else who works face to face with clients.
