Self-Care and the workplace
I have always been employed in professions working with and supporting people, one being a very large international chartered accountancy firm in the area of Human Resources. This position involved a lot of counselling and I had the true desire to support people, however I could feel I was getting exhausted and not taking care of myself. I was starting to feel I would burn out. In being honest, I could feel that the way I was in my work was not assisting others or myself – it was not sustainable.
Nothing within my training so far had talked about how I could support myself whilst supporting another.
I started to look into organisations that provided training for therapies and found the work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. I was pleased to find practical and simple ways of understanding the importance of self-care in developing connection with myself and others – and I applied this to my workplace practices.
Observing and exploring totally simple things like eating, sleeping, how I felt in my body, how I expressed myself, what energy I was bringing to the workplace (my clients). As I have felt inspired by the simple choices Serge makes in living a very healthy and loving life, the integrity, consistency and care that I now choose to live with daily has an effect on what I am delivering to clients.
I now offer the support I always wanted to give others without feeling the drain I used to feel.
I have always felt within myself that our thoughts, our actions, our choices on a daily basis all have an impact on our health and on others around us. I have felt supported in this through the exceptionally high standard of ethics required by the Esoteric Practitioners Association (EPA)*.
Universal Medicine is the only organisation I felt professionally ticked all the boxes and offered the same level of integrity I myself wanted to offer my clients.
