Thank you I really enjoyed the workshop, I wish I’d known about mindfulness when I was new to fostering ,it would have made a huge difference. It should be available to all foster carers.
The little tools that only take a few minutes but can get your feet back on the ground and help you respond differently to a situation were really valuable.
I loved the section of Triggers & tantrums, it highlighted that triggers can be deep rooted and take us by surprise.
The training was a breath of fresh air, I cannot stress enough how much I enjoyed it. It came at exactly the right time.
I left feeling refreshed, energised and raring to go
The breathing exercises were very grounding and can be used immediately
I really liked the 5 minute care section – as trying to take an hour of of your already busy day can actually cause m ore anxiety than good.
Absolutely Fantastic !! This is the only training I’ve been able to attend as I am a foster carer for babies. I completed part of this course with my baby on my knee after she woke up during the course.
I loved that this was online. I would never have felt comfortable closing my eyes, or lying down for relaxation in a room with other people. Because it was online, from my home, I was able to relax and really take part.
I really liked the way the information was presented, there was a good balance between theory and practical information/exercises
