Tray Dubray Counseling
Def: The emotional residue or strain of exposure to working with those suffering from the consequences of traumatic events and caring for others in your professional and personal life.
EMT’s, nurses, fellow counselors, teachers and those of us taking care of ageing parents, are just some of the professions and personal situations that can experience compassion fatigue. I know first hand from being in the caregiving profession for over 20 years in the human services industry.
Everyone goes through times where life and work feel overwhelming.
Feeling down lately and nothing seems to change? I can help you with tools to make life a little better.
It's never fun to feel like you're in a panic or experiencing overwhelming dread. Come talk to me.
No matter how passionate you are about your career, burnout happens, especially if you are a caretaker in your work.
I’ve seen very talented professionals burn out in the field they were meant to be in. In their careers, the bureaucracy often overshadows their original hopes of helping others. With expectations shattered, it can become hard to balance professional and personal responsibilities.
Families too feel the same strains when faced with personal devastation such as taking care of another family member’s child, becoming a caretaker for ageing parents or dealing with an emotional or physical trauma.
When you have a moment alone, does the weight of work/life balance (or lack of it), cause you distress? It’s normal for professionals in caretaking careers to feel this way. Counseling can help.
Taking Care of Yourself Can Make Life Enjoyable Again.
Prioritizing taking care of yourself first can have surprising (and healing) results. Including performing even better at your career or in caretaking.
