I am a Grief and Bereavement counsellor (BACP accredited). I work in a hospice and use Headspace as a means of looking after myself. I started with Take10. It helped me to leave the voices and feelings of that day’s clients behind and return to myself. Initially I fell asleep a lot, until I learned to sit up while meditating and light a candle. Now I open my eyes to look at the flame for a moment or so if I feel myself drifting off.
After unlocking the whole of the Headspace Journey I have completed packs on Relationships, Sleep and Creativity. I found the pack on Acceptance particularly helpful in my work. A fundamental counseling principle is to always seek to offer acceptance to one’s clients. Headspace on Acceptance helped me to really focus on and feel acceptance toward myself and has increased my emotional capacity to offer the same to clients.
