Self Care Toolkit


Self care is one of the core foundations that you can work on where you can learn how best to support yourself.  Self Care is about recognising what you can do to look after yourself and offering yourself permission to care for yourself.   If you don't know where to start, that's okay - use the invitation below and spend 5 minutes each day reflecting on what works for you at the moment.

Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional can make things better.   Caring about your well-being and building your set of tools in order to seize the day can be part of the work we do together.
