Help & Support
Reaching out for help when you need it is a sign of courage, not weakness. If you are struggling with physical or emotional exhaustion, no longer feel competent in your role, feel emotionally numb, or have lost your sense of compassion, you may be heading towards burnout. If so, you might benefit from professional support.
Equally if you are experiencing symptoms related to primary or secondary traumatic stress, it could be invaluable to work with someone who can help you process and release the trauma, so that you can re-connect with a sense of calm, steadiness or inner peace. Professional support can be invaluable in helping you rebalance your life, or reignite the enthusiasm for your work.
Whatever is happening, if you can’t see a way forward, or find it hard to implement supportive strategies, I encourage you to seek professional help, whether it be from a supervisor, counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist, your doctor or life coach. Reaching out for support could be one of the greatest gifts you give yourself.
