Course Overview

In working with people who experience distress, feelings of fatigue, burnout and stress can seem unavoidable. However, by finding ways to nourish our own wellbeing – cultivating our own innate capacities for mindfulness and compassion – we can discover that not only are we better able to cope, we can realise a more sensitive, wiser and more responsive approach to the people we work with. Relationships are at the heart of the work we do and growing our strengths of calmness and presence brings about the possibility of Reciprocal Flourishing. 

This course has been developed for those who have completed the CALM Core Theory Course and wish to explore strengthening our capacities for self-awareness, self-regulation and self-care. For all of us in a care-giving or supportive role the focus on ourselves can seem uncomfortable at first; but the more we resource ourselves, the more energy, availability and presence we have for others.

What Others Say

” The impact this course has had on me is tangible. I often perceived Mindfulness as purely a way to relax or calm down. Now thanks to CALM Presence, mindfulness is an integral part of my life… both at home and at work. Being aware of “me” in the present and the impact that I can have on others, has created a more contented, productive and happier me. “

The CALM Presence Course
” The course itself gave me an opportunity to reflect on myself as a practitioner. It has allowed me to connect more deeply with the CALM principles/values of kindness and compassion. “

The CALM Presence Course
” My sense of worth exploded as a consequence of attending this course. As a worker I can give greater meaning to what I do, as a person I can give more of myself without losing sight of my needs, as a human being I can show greater humanity to others. Definitely the best 2 days I’ve ever spent on me… and it was still considered work! “
