Guest speaker: Totally swamped and utterly overwhelmed?

14th September 2023| Blogs


Totally Swamped & Utterly Overwhelmed? Discover the most powerful ways to get on top of things and feel more in control!

When you care so much about the young people you help, life can feel crushingly busy. You’re juggling countless balls at school and at home – and doing everything you can to keep them all in the air. And it feels impossible to switch off, as you take work home with you: books and files weighing down your bags; thoughts of certain children crowding your head. 


"I can tell when someone has worked with Corrina by how they speak, listen and interact. That's how powerful sessions with her can be." 

Dr Carrie Goucher


In this webinar with Corrina Gordon-Barnes, you'll learn highly practical tools for:

  • Pressing Pause: Managing your energy effectively so that you can most intelligently prioritise your time 
  • Saying No: Setting realistic boundaries and communicating these gracefully to others (as well as making peace with them yourself)
  • Regaining Your Power: Returning your focus to where you have choices and the greatest impact 

This webinar will help you shift from it feeling like a daily choice between your wellbeing or theirs, and it will support you to be the calm, capable, on-top-of-things practitioner you long to be.   

‘Totally Swamped and Utterly Overwhelmed?’ is worth 5 CPD points to Thrive Licensed Practitioners and is happening on Zoom on 8th February 2024 between 10am and 12pm.
