The invisible sense of the heart

£5.00

As a carer, you have a deeply important job and one that must not go by unnoticed. Taking care of others is the most important job you can do and often goes unnoticed in a culture where doing and competing are more admirable than being and sharing. I know from my own experience that when your work directly involves caring for the emotional, physical and overall well-being of another or others that it is imperative to manage your own vibrant health and physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

The invisible sense of the heart
By Karen Woodley

As a carer, you have a deeply important job and one that must not go by unnoticed. Taking care of others is the most important job you can do and often goes unnoticed in a culture where doing and competing are more admirable than being and sharing. I know from my own experience that when your work directly involves caring for the emotional, physical and overall well-being of another or others that it is imperative to manage your own vibrant health and physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

I put this book together as a result of my own encounters as a therapist with children and adults who have learning disabilities as well as my understanding of the great commitment that carers have toward others. I have seen many people give up on themselves and their dreams because they are too exhausted and without simple resources for a little help. Although this booklet is focused on children with additional learning needs it can be applied to anybody in a role where caring for another is your job.

I have been working as a therapist for many years. Initially through creative movement therapy where I was the director of the Wales school of Biodanza (RTSB) and later as a Movement Psychotherapist. I have been responsible for training teachers and other professionals in leading therapeutic programmes for children and adults with additional learning needs, autism and other difficulties across Wales for the Touch Trust charity for a decade. Over the last years I have helped people with many issues including self esteem, anxiety, relationship issues, stress and depression. As well as people with suicidal ideation, loss, emotional disturbances, difficulties expressing themselves and childhood issues. My work as a Movement Psychotherapist included an appointment in a low secure forensic unit in Cardiff with young adults where I was the Movement Psychotherapist for two years.
