Reflective Practice

For Practitioners

Register Your Interest

Reflective Practice is essential to protecting workers from stress, overwhelm, trauma and compassion fatigue. As practitioners we are called to work in the field of caretaking/helping and for many of us this unconscious decision is based on an exquisite skill and capacity to track and care of the other. This usually speaks to a history that necessitated the child to take care of a parent/caretaker – this is the story of “The Drama of the Gifted Child”.  As practitioners we require a framework that supports us to recognise how we at times “abandon” our own needs to care for others. It is in this unconscious attachment patterning that practitioners and clients are most at risk.

Explore and identify core motivating themes showing up in your practice. Learn ways to reflect, track and attune to what is happening in relationship to your work. Learn ways to support an embodied selfcare practice and identify ways to nurture and nourish yourself as you work in individual, agency or team environments.

We have a Duty of Care to our clients and ourselves to ensure we are working from a place of health, choice and awareness. Reflective Practice ensures we are aware, skilled and supported to work with projection, transference and counter- transference.

Reflective practice groups are designed to provide a safe space to debrief and attain support in the areas of self-reflection in relation to client work.

“Learnt about how teens process problems and events. How to deal with teen emotions and behavior and how to recognize this.”

“I learnt that we are not alone with the challenges and struggles of raising teens. I learnt that I have the ability to address issues with improved skills.“

“I was pleasantly surprised with the content of the program and how impersonal yet relevant it was. Attendees were not required to contribute unless they chose to do so and it was totally up to individuals to discuss personal issues if they wished to do so. I went into the course thinking my parenting style was going to be addressed personally but this was not the case. The program was very inclusive and equipped me with the necessary tools to build better relationships with not only my teenager but also my husband. I am so pleased I was involved in the program. I learnt a lot, and have implemented a lot of ‘emotional coaching’ techniques and noticed results. ‘Emotional coaching’ really does work and I recommend that everyone gets involved, including schools and community groups.”

“I have gained so much insight and skills from the Tuning into Teens Course. It has given me a greater understanding into how teenagers think and communicate as well as how to parent and communicate more mindfully so as to foster strong relationships where my children can feel heard and free to express and explore their own emotions. My only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to do this course sooner. Phyllis is a caring and gifted presenter who has a genuine concern for those she coaches. I have learnt so much from her.”

“I took Phyllis’ course with my girls being 9 & 6 years old, and although its specific to teenagers, I have found it easy to implement with my kids from now. Phyllis was able to workshop and guide us on our personal communication styles, and it was great hearing other parent’s examples too. The course was very practical and a safe space to share, and I definitely had a couple of ‘aha’ moments!”

“Dear Phyllis, there are no words to thank you. I have learnt so much, not only about myself but why behaviours occur. It has been a teary (on occasion) but very positive experience. I really love your delivery and acceptance of all of us. Thank you so very much.“
