How Does Self Care Support YOU?
Self Care helps us COPE during illness, stress, loss and change. It also supports carers looking after loved ones who need to res-set their own self care, parents adjusting to life with a newborn, mothers suffering post natal depression, people building a new life after relocating, over worked executives and exam-stressed teenagers.
Self Care helps us RECOVER from illness, stress, loss and change by taking care of ourselves while working with expert health professionals. Some people who have undertaken Self Care School are seeking help after losing a loved one, an experience of betrayal, redundancy, recovering from a range of conditions, including depression, severe illness or after a divorce.
Self Care offers us a PROTECTIVE FUNCTION, forming a buffer against future stress. Sometimes, we have knowledge that a challenge lies ahead and we have worked with some wonderful, proactive people who are preparing themselves for life-changing events and situations.
Self Care helps us to FLOURISH as individuals. Self Care can help you become the best version of yourself. You can aspire to be the kind of parent or partner you desire, step up to embark on a new career, return to study, seek a renewed sense of purpose following retirement or simply getting into the shape you want.
