        Self Care for Carers was set up by Karen Brennan, a psychologist and trainer specialising in compassion fatigue and self-care for healthcare staff. We know that working as a caregiver can be challenging but at no time is this truer than during the Covid 19 crisis. Since 2012, we have worked exclusively in healthcare and have built up deep experience about what works best, and most quickly to reduce stress.  Doctors, nurses, HCA's, managers, support workers, homecare teams and allied care professionals, consultants, admin staff etc have attended training. Over 95% of trainees 'would recommend it to their colleagues'.

        Here you will find empirically researched relaxation techniques used by thousands of healthcare workers. Some are so effective that they are used in the treatment of PSTD.  We want to empower staff to feel more in control of their stress levels and have quick to access information at their fingertips when they need it most .

        Help us to help your team.
