BC Counsellor - Fall 2014 - (Page 10)

Feature CounselloR ComPAssIon FATIgue: How to Find Balance For many counsellors, self-care does not come naturally. We must take active measures to overcome our tendencies to focus primarily on the needs of others, and to learn how to self-nurture and be more open to receiving care ourselves. By Michelle Hamilton, M.Ed., CCC School counselling is a challenging and rewarding career for educators and professional counsellors, offering a never-ending range of new students to work with, and never a dull moment. However, the difficult circumstances faced by many children and youth today may leave counsellors 10 feeling helpless and disturbed by what they see and hear. While school counsellors and their supervisors may recognize the intense and often draining nature of the work, they may not be aware of certain unique risks to the helpers involved with other people's stress and trauma.
