Training Room

Counsellor Burnout and Self Care

Tuesday 20th February 2007. 6.15pm - 9.15pm


Cost £30.00(inc VAT) –  including refreshments

This workshop aims to help counsellors and other helping professionals to recognise the warning signs of burnout, and to take appropriate steps to care for themselves. 


Counsellors and helpers may find it difficult to focus on themselves and their own needs or may try to deal with personal stress and trauma by taking on additional burdens of care for clients.  This presents a clear risk to the health of professionals and is likely to compromise our service to clients since it can be difficult to maintain appropriate levels of empathy and congruence under stress. 


The workshop will offer information, exercises and guidelines to help counsellors, managers and supervisors to pick up signs of burnout in themselves and others. We aim to create a space where participants can reflect on their own experience in a non judgemental and confidential setting.
