Self compassion, resilience and positive mental health outcomes for medical and allied health professionals.
Tempo supports you to connect with yourself and focus on what you might need.
Let's talk to see how I can support you.
The work of healthcare workers can be extraordinarily rewarding with opportunities to make a real difference in people’s lives, explore an interesting career and develop stimulating collegial relationships.
However, long hours, demanding workloads, organisational constraints and high levels of responsibility are amongst the most common stressors for Australian medical and allied health professionals. In private practice, the demands of running a business can exacerbate these pressures.
Growing research shows worrying mental health trends for our clinicians:
- Emotional exhaustion
- Posttraumatic stress symptoms
Seeking support and treatment early is vital.
Tempo offers a confidential service, based in evidence-based practice. In keeping with current research recommendations in relation to managing overwhelm, fatigue and symptoms of posttraumatic stress, therapeutic approaches are multi-sensory and body-based.
Incorporating elements of mindfulness, music listening, guided imagery, creative arts and body-focused processes are carefully designed and structured to alleviate symptoms, and invite you to connect with your needs.
Develop supportive tools that you can practice and implement wherever you are:
- Build inner resources
- Develop tools to calm your nervous system
- Understand your needs
- Reduce agitation and find calm, clarity and focus
- Improve relaxation and sleep practices
- Process traumatic memories
Telehealth platforms used, Coviu and Zoom, have end to end encryption for your privacy and security.
Let's talk about what you need
Sometimes you spend so much time looking after others it's hard to know when or how to look after yourself.
Let's discuss where you're at, and how I might be able to help.

Resources for Healthcare Workers
Through November – December in late 2021, I met with seventeen helping professionals from the following areas: nursing, teaching, music therapy, pharmacy, counselling, child and family therapy, social work and service management to discuss how they seek help or look after themselves when they are struggling. This infographic summarises key findings.
Within all the uncertainty of 2020, one thing is for sure - Telehealth is here to stay. Attending your first online session can be daunting. But meeting over the internet doesn't have to be hard. Here are some tips and tricks for getting the most out of your session when meeting over the internet.
We don’t leave ourselves behind when we go to work, we take our whole selves in. Some days it is easy to keep ourselves separate. But when we are tired, have a special connection to a client or patient, have difficulties of our own, or are touched by the moment, it is not always possible, or appropriate, to maintain a separation. We feel their joy and we feel their pain. And sometimes it touches ours.
