A SMALL INTRODUCTION
Linda's empathy and understanding of struggle both professional and personal has fuelled her passion for learning from others and in turn empowering others.

The workshops/presentations are suitable for people already experiencing compassion fatigue, whether they know it or not, as well as people who want a better awareness and ideas to guard against it.
Successful Mindset Ltd works on the principles of firstly having awareness of the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue.
Secondly, having an acceptance that it can happen to anyone, especially those people who have empathy and understanding with those they care for.
Finally, taking action to reduce the risk and incorporating self care strategies into daily life.
Successful Mindset Ltd workshops have been described as ‘highly interactive, practical and skills based’. What does that mean? – well, you certainly will not be turning up and listening to Linda talk at you for 3 ½ hours.
Expect to be sharing ideas and tips with other participants, taking part in discussions and exercises to help you understand how this affects you and spend time thinking about the changes that you can make. We also encourage you to make a commitment to take action and make some changes, but these will be personal to you.
What you will not be doing is any role play, chanting, yoga, or meditation. You also will not be told that there is one simple ‘one size fits all’ solution to compassion fatigue that you can take home and everything will be ok. But you will go away with a greater understanding of how compassion fatigue affects you and have time to explore strategies that will work for you to help guard against compassion fatigue, or lessen the symptoms.
