Mindfulness for teachers, health professionals and addiction clinicians



Being a health professional, addiction clinician/ worker or teacher come with their particular stresses and struggles as well as wonderful rewards of doing what we care about.

Dealing with funding restraints, under resourcing, organisational issues as well as the actual work of being in a caring, helping, teaching role can take its toll.

Often these roles involve giving of ourselves day in day out, going “above and beyond”.

We are essentially “the tools of our trade” and so we have to look after ourselves and keep ourselves well, so we can continue to offer our best in a sustainable way. From an organisational and financial perspective it makes sense to look after staff.
