What About You?

Free online one hour workshop

"I feel positive for the first time in ages." Marianne


When flying you are told in the safety briefing to put your own oxygen mask on first. But when you're caring for or supporting a loved one it can feel like there just isn't time to do this.

I've been there, and felt like I was drowning under the weight of pressure. Eventually I realised that caring for yourself is essential to caring for others. What happens if you become too burnt out to help?

What to expect

I draw on my own experiences as a carer and use coaching tools to make this free workshop fun and interactive in order to help you to:
- feel part of a supportive group
- understand why looking after yourself is so important

- recognise the signs that you show you might need to do more to care for yourself
- see how you looking after yourself is a win-win for everyone
- find time to do small things for yourself and build this into your regular routines

"Thank you very much for a wonderful inspiring hour.  I woke up the next morning thinking I am actually putting [loved one] first, work on a first level too and me third level, so I rose myself to No 1 Level and my gosh I felt better already." Caroline

Book now for the one hour workshop at various times during Carers Week, 6-12th June or contact me at coaching@fionagillies.co.uk for an individual conversation

 
 

Why WAY?

“How are you?” my friend asked on the phone when my other half was signed off work with stress. She listened for a bit while I talked about the situation, how well OH was doing, psychiatrist appointments, work etc and then said “OK, but what about you?”.

It was then that I realised how much my identity and how I was had become linked to my other half and the situation. And in that moment I realised I needed to make it more about me again.
