We are recruiting!
Our social enterprise, Absolute Specialists Wellbeing is offering support sessions for people impacted emotionally by the Covid 19 pandemic. We have a great deal of interest from third sector organisations who wish to refer people to us and we already have some funding arranged to support us in this work with more in the pipeline.
We are expecting to get a lot busier and would like to recruit more practitioners to work with us.
Responding to a need
We are very aware of the impact that the Covid 19 pandemic is having on the emotional health of many people. From those locked down, isolated and in fear of catching the virus; those separated from loved ones and unable to support them even as they are ill and dying; those nursing the sick and experiencing a range of emotions from overwhelm, grief, anger and everything between; those left exhausted, demoralised and lost and those who have struggled to keep a healthy perspective when their normal coping strategies are unavailable to them.
The emotional wellbeing toolkit that we teach people will be really helpful right now.
Absolute Specialists Wellbeing is responding. We have moved our service online and are offering support sessions and our toolkit to those in need. We have set up a GoFundMe site so the public can support us in this work. Currently we are offering support for carers and care-workers for free, and we are hoping to extend this service but for now other people can ask our practitioners about the rate they can offer for sessions.
We will need more practitioners!
Intensive course this Autumn
In response to this we are offering an intensive course in the Focussed Mindfulness Method that will run from September to November 2020 at a slashed fee of £1400. We are looking for funding so we can offer assisted places.
The course is experiential – you will learn the approach working on yourself and with fellow students. Once you have a good grasp of the Method you will have one to one support from an experienced supevisor as you begin to work with clients.
Please call if you would like to know more or be considered for the course.
