Hey there compassionate therapist, we see you 🥰
Being a deeply compassionate therapist is so rewarding and (let's be honest here) oh so challenging all at the same time.
Your deep caring nature and drive to provide excellent care makes you the amazing therapist you are.
→A unicorn amongst a sea of endless providers who "don't have time" for their clients or keep referring clients elsewhere - you stick around and try to make a difference.
You give a sh*t about the work you do and the clients you work with. You go above and beyond the call of duty to help your clients live fulfilling lives and strive day in and day out to help them succeed...
...no matter the personal cost...
But that's what this comes down to and why you're here, right?
YOUR personal cost is taking its toll.
"Compassion fatigue is the cost of caring for others or for their emotional pain, resulting from the desire to help relieve the suffering of others. It is also known as vicarious or secondary trauma, referencing the way that other people's trauma can become their own." - The Canadian Medical Association
As compassionate therapists we are SO giving and it costs us greatly.
→ We give away our personal time to help clients instead of taking care of ourselves
→ We give away our headspace thinking of ways we can do better for our clients, when we could be more present with loved ones
→ We give away our emotional availability by using every ounce of our empathy and compassion for our clients so that we are left feeling empty or unable to have space to be emotionally available for other people in our lives or ourselves.
How long can you keep this going?
It's time to make a change.

What people are saying about our Compassion Fatigue focused courses and community support
"I believe the course challenged me to review myself and how I interact with patients. When I get burnt out, I often feel like I don't have control, and this challenged me to look into not only the clinician my patients needs but the person I need to be to be satisfied in my work, family, and recreational life." - C.C. a PT
"It has given me more insight and more resources to manage complex cases in the clinic. Alternatively, it has given me strategies to better cope and handle complex situations to minimize the effect it has on my personal life." -J.D a PT
