    Providing support in the language they understand and in a manner that they can use it while working, not something to do afterwards and feel guilty about not doing it because you know you should. Thanks for sharing aspects of the training. I am motivated to find the language for my industry.

    Krista and Phoebe
    Thank you so much. I have really experienced “to live this to feel this in real time” how powerful is that! I am a former Renal Nurse Specialist ( Belfast’s) and now work with nurses as a counsellor. I love Kristen Neffs work and have asked practitioners to check out and practice her resources on her website. It has been amazing how many staff say to me “ I used that breath and hand thing and it really helped”. I feel so much more resourced myself today after this webinar and of course I will pass it on to nurses in the UK. Krista your passion is contagious and your sense of fun. Wishing you both well.
    Loved the reminder of being human. We will never progress beyond being human – isn’t that a great relief and leveller for us all?

    This was very helpful and much needed information and techniques to use to remember self care in the moment. Although I do not work in the medical world ( I counsel in the school system) I can apply this in my work and share with others. Thank you!
