Working with clients in the helping professions (nurses, doctors, therapists, teachers, social workers etc.) can be hugely rewarding but is also known to incur high rates of emotional exhaustion and stress. Having an effective self-care practice is essential. The importance of self-care practices can affect emotional, cognitive, behavioural and inter-personal functioning.  
Mindfulness practice offers participants the opportunity to move towards greater balance, choice and participation in life. Through the training 

we learn how to bring acceptance and curiosity to all of our experience, thoughts, emotions and reactions and to the situation we are in. This 

can free us up to respond with more clarity and wisdom rather than acting out of habitual patterns. It opens the possibility of working more compassionately with difficulties in life and to choose what is nourishing for ourselves and others.
