Creative Self Care Course

Professionals providing support to others sometimes find it difficult to switch off resulting in what is called ‘secondary traumatic stress’. If not addressed this has been found to result in physical and emotional distress for the professional as well as a decrease in work performance.

What It Involves

We have developed a creative self-care course specifically addressing compassion fatigue. Delivered by an emotional support worker this course uses the power of mindful art making to help participants discuss and identify triggers as well as coping mechanisms.

Feedback From Previous Attendees On The Course

Previous attendees on the course have reported the course allowed them an opportunity to discuss and learn valuable coping skills which have enabled them to do their job better. They left comments such as:

‘Having the opportunity to be honest and realistic about trauma’

"Having the time to talk about self-care"

"Thank you for providing the time to reflect"


£130 per person. This includes lunch and take home pieces of art which act as long-term reinforcement of the course discussions.
