Taking care of yourself so you can take care of others. In conversation with Tamu Thomas on prioritising our own mental health and wellbeing.

We know further and higher education and child social care staff are under acute pressure. Taking work home is usual, people often experience hard to meet time pressures, many organisations are going through extreme change and lots of staff are showing signs of burn out. Add in keeping students at the heart of our work and it’s fair to say workforces focused on supporting students with care experience are in need of well-being and mental health support.

Tamu Thomas is transformational life coach and former social worker, dedicated to guiding people toward achieving work-life harmony. By focusing on nervous system alignment Tamu promotes holistic well-being, addressing the core of workplace stress and the imbalance in emotional and domestic labour.  Her pivotal book, "Women Who Work Too Much: Break Free from Toxic Productivity and Find Your Joy," unveils insights for those striving to escape the relentless demands of systemic pressures. This work reflects Tamu's profound understanding of the issues rooted in her social work experience, offering a pathway to liberation from over-functioning in response to workplace stress.

This CPD session will be useful to widening participation teams, student services teams and academic staff in FE and HE, as well as local authority, virtual school foster agency staff.
