“Finding Fabulous” is about embarking on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and happiness. This two-day workshop encourages individuals to seek and create a fulfilling and extraordinary life.

Mindfulness is not just about meditation — it is a state of being. It is a way of understanding yourself and how your automatic patterns impact your relationships. It explains why it’s essential to challenge your belief system and let go of judgment. Mindfulness is learning skills that focus on the now rather than beating yourself up about the past or worrying endlessly about the future.

Mindfulness gives you the skills to manage stressful situations and become curious about how you interact with others. It is not a passive process; it is a choice you actively make, and it takes persistence and courage to set personal boundaries.

Finding fabulous is about cultivating joy and satisfaction in both your professional and personal relationships and adopting a positive outlook towards life, even in the face of challenges. It suggests building resilience, focusing on solutions, and embracing optimism.

To some participants, it might also mean breaking free from constraints, societal expectations, or self-imposed limitations to live a life that’s true to oneself and marked by authenticity and courage.

This workshop has been specifically designed for healthcare staff working in high-stress environments. Its content will highlight the importance of self-care practices, mindfulness, and taking time to recharge. It’s about recognizing the need for self-compassion and nurturing one’s well-being to continue caring for others effectively.

Learning Outcomes:

Develop an understanding of Mindfulness:
Participants will learn what mindfulness is and the critical components of living mindfully. They will practice mindfulness techniques beyond traditional meditation, allowing them to cultivate a state of presence and awareness in their daily activities. This includes acquiring skills to focus on the present moment, thereby reducing stress and enhancing the quality of both personal and professional relationships.

Enhance Emotional Resilience:
Attendees will gain strategies for building emotional resilience, enabling them to maintain a positive outlook and effectively manage challenges in high-stress healthcare settings. This outcome emphasizes the importance of adopting a solutions-focused approach, challenging negative belief systems, and practicing self-compassion to navigate through difficult circumstances.

Improve Self-awareness and Relationship Dynamics:
The workshop will equip healthcare professionals with the insights and tools to understand their automatic patterns of thinking and behaving, how they impact their interactions with colleagues and patients, and how to alter these dynamics to foster more supportive and satisfying relationships. Participants will explore the concepts of non-judgment and curiosity in improving communication and teamwork.

Foster Personal and Professional Well-being:
Participants will learn the significance of self-care practices tailored to the demands of healthcare professions. The workshop aims to inspire healthcare staff to prioritise their well-being through practical self-care strategies and enhancing their capacity to care for others. It also encourages individuals to seek authenticity and courage, advocating for a balanced approach to living a fulfilling and extraordinary life inside and outside the workplace.

Sue is passionate about making a difference in how the community and Nurses experience the healthcare system.

“Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system and work in difficult environments that can take advantage of their commitment to ensuring the best possible care is delivered. To continue to meet professional and community expectations Nurses and Midwives need to acknowledge their unique contribution to health care delivery and assert their collective strength to safeguard the community and ensure their ongoing professional needs are recognised and met.

Healthcare should be delivered by competent, knowledgeable individuals to ensure the best possible experience for the recipient of that care. Nursing is a fabulous profession.  The knowledge and skill of the individual Nurse will have the greatest influence on the happiness and health outcomes of each and every client”.

Turtle Encounter

From November through to January, it is an amazing sight to see these huge creatures heaving their way up the beach to find a safe spot to dig a nest and lay their eggs. And then, some 6-8 weeks later (generally between January to March), you can witness the tiny hatchlings emerging from their sandy nests to scurry down the beach towards the sea.
