WELLBEING AND SELF-CARE for practitioners
We all lead busy lives and juggle many responsibilities: work, time with family and friends, hobbies, and rest. Making time for ourselves is essential to recharge our batteries. Often, many think of self-care as a luxury that is “nice to have.” We have a moral and ethical responsibility to work with clients at our optimum level, rather than when our thinking and emotional well-being are reduced. It is written into the professional Code of Ethics.
Self-care looks different for everyone as we are individuals with unique needs and requirements. Our self-awareness enables us to understand and monitor our needs and act on them.
Career Coach, Help Thyself!
The Wellbeing and Self Care for Practitioner course will help you take care of yourself. The course is focused on the well-being and self-care of the career coach to strengthen your connection and communication with your client, and deliver better coaching outcomes.
