My mission is to give you Time.
Time to Reflect. Time to Balance. Time to Grow.
Helping professions: Occupations that provide health and education services to individuals and groups, including occupations in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, counseling, medicine, nursing, social work, physical and occupational therapy, teaching, and education. American Psychological Association (APA).
Throughout the pandemic, we have lived through a period of unprecedented change in our lives, and for some this has resulted in adopting new ways of living and thinking, new ways of working and new ways of communicating. My MSc research observed 'helping professionals' and their capacity for Harnessing, the ability to 'actively engage with distress as a means to facilitate goal pursuit' (Doorley et al., 2020). Time (to think & reflect), Flow experiences, Mindset, Hope & Connections with others were some of the key ingredients to cultivating Harnessing in my research.
I have personally lived through some of the challenges experienced by other helping professionals within education, the charity sector, the corporate sector and most recently the public sector. Navigating organisational restructures, supporting teams through ongoing change, supporting clients in crisis and all the while striving for self-preservation. That's why I started Kunaka Coaching, to serve helping professionals as an agent of change, for personal and professional development.
