Of all the hard jobs around, one of the hardest is being a good teacher. ~ Maggie Gallagher
Any teacher is well familiar with the demands and intensity of this noble profession. Teacher stress and burnout is an increasing concern and can arise from a variety of sources. As class sizes grow, as student needs become more complex and as schools struggle with budget constraints, teachers face rising tension, expanding roles and unprecedented levels of responsibility. Without health and wellness protection, teachers can be vulnerable to unique mental health risks. As teachers care for their students every day, teachers also need someone to care for them in a sensitive and empathic way. Despite the inherent challenges of the teaching profession, educators can remain proactive in taking steps toward wellness that can diminish teacher fatigue and prevent disabling stress and burnout.
I have had personal exposure to the pressures of the teaching profession as well as the complex psycho, social and educational needs of students and families. In our sessions, I am committed to ensuring you truly feel "felt" and supported in a way that is grounded in respect and solidarity.
As a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Teacher I offer my teacher clients a wellness pathway that blends support with gentle guidance. As an experienced teacher, Learning Centre owner, spouse of an elementary school teacher and mom of three, I have a deep understanding of the special complexities and overlapping worlds of the home and the classroom. I would be honoured to support you in cultivating your wellness goals and bringing your best self to your classroom and your career every day.
