The Care Nest is a safe and confidential care practice for individuals (aged 18+) that provides one-to-one sessions (in-person and online), using a combination of practices in life coaching, mediation, mindfulness, and body-mind integration. The purpose of these sessions are to help support each client as they journey through a rediscovery of greater self-understanding and self-resourcing in maintaining their own care practices in the long term.
The type of trauma many of us are now experiencing on a daily basis as a direct result of the harms that surround us is currently being renamed as pervasive and persistent – it cuts us to the heart, and it’s non-stop. Grief, despair, anger, fear, exhaustion, frustration, loneliness – these are all becoming a part of our everyday lives. And we have a choice - that’s the good news - in how to meet these incredibly painful feelings, which is where the Care Nest comes in.
Coming for a Care Nest session means stepping into a warm and cosy space that’s filled with blankets, pillows, and candles; in which you are invited to be seen, heard, and met as you are with kindness and compassion, whilst being supported to remain gently attentive and wisely responsive to your own needs and boundaries. At the heart of the practices offered in all Care Nest sessions lies a simple set of invitations – to slow down, to notice, to name, and to investigate. This journey is in no way an easy one – it takes courage, openness, honesty, and curiosity to fully meet who and how we are as humans. I know from direct experience of having walked this path myself. In the words of Brene Brown, the Care Nest welcomes you to dare greatly ‘which means the courage to be vulnerable, it means to show up and be seen, to ask for what you need, to talk about how you’re feeling, to have the hard conversations’, and start your journey towards healing whilst resting in genuine care.
