Finding the Balance (Juggling Life & Caring)

This
is a FREE workshop
for carers* (whether new to caring or with more extensive caring
experience).  An opportunity to meet other carers in a welcoming
and encouraging atmosphere, sharing tips and learning new life skills
to help in the caring role.

(*A
carer can be anyone, of any age, who provides unpaid help to family
or friends who would not be able to manage without their support.
This could be caring for a relative, parent, child, partner or friend
who is frail, has a physical or mental illness, disability or problem
with drugs or alcohol)


Aim:                            To enable carers to
improve the way that they meet their own needs in a healthy way, to
give the energy they would like to manage both their caring role and
their own life.
The
focus will be on
building self-esteem, problem solving, managing stressful situations
and lowering anxiety.
Approach:                   In a positive
atmosphere with easy conversation the morning will be facilitated
using the human givens approach to look at how to: identify personal
needs, effectively use one’s own innate resources to meet these
needs and to develop the skills to enhance the carers life. This will be a fun way of carers building on their own strengths and
those of others around them and will include a relaxation session.
Facilitator:                  Bindi Gauntlett is
a trained Nurse and Health Visitor as well as a Psychotherapist and
has many years of experience of working as a trainer with families
and individuals.
