Work/Life Balance

Tara Elie (Coach, Founder/Director of Star Performer)

The information - a topic new to me - was useful to me from day one. The personableness of the presenter was outstanding. It demonstrated her full grasp of the material and greatly enhanced the presentation and this participant’s experience.

Setting Boundaries as An Act of Self-Compassion

Faye McGuinness (Director of Programmes, Education Support)

The session was extremely useful and will support my wellbeing... Great session.

Social Work Apprentice, All Through School

I loved this session and gained some lovely tips- like worrying time and a ritual at the end of the day and focusing on strengths. I felt uncomfortable speaking into the group as I knew it was being recorded and going to be used on the website- this brought a sense of worry about vulnerability - being seen by a wider audience that I had no control over- I think it would have been nice given the size of the group to be given the option of breakout groups which would provide a safer space to share. The facilitation was excellent and the pacing- just a little more reflection time in a smaller group would have suited my temperament... Thank you-a lovely course- as someone trained to teach the 8 week mindful based compassionate living course and the 8 week mindful self-compassion course (Eric Van Brink and Chris Germer courses) it was nice to get a fresh perspective and some different ideas- very enjoyable and practical. Thank you. It is such a gift to be able to access courses like these.

Thank you for a really interesting session. I especially liked the Role Model prompts, something I will share with the rest of the leadership team at my school.
