Today's Nurse...
From Exhaustion to Revitalization

A Nurse's Guide to More Energy and Spark

A program designed to help you move …
from feeling overworked, overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted
to feeling empowered, re-energized, calm, and revitalized.

Are You Caught In A Cycle Of Struggle?

Not feeling good about yourself?

Not feeling good about being a nurse?

Having a negative response to your workplace? 

Having little time with family and friends, let alone yourself?

If you want to break this cycle, one of the best ways is through support that explores what will change this cycle for you. This change must be at an individual level for it to be sustainable.

  • Being overworked and overwhelmed is normal for most nurses because of the physical and emotional realities they face daily. 
  • Our nervous systems respond to stressful clinical situations by going on high alert for extended periods of time, with hardly any recovery/restoration time. This can lead to a permanent state of dysregulation.
  • Trauma-informed care teaches us to assess ourselves for symptoms of dysregulation and to act on addressing them. A lack of attention will only lead to normalizing the abnormal.

Are you feeling overworked in your nursing position?

What overwhelms you?

  • Stress has become a normalized by-product of nursing in today’s healthcare climate. 
  • Many nurses are so tired at the end of their shift that this fatigue carries over into their home lives. Your job should not make you so tired that you don’t have any energy left after the workday.
  • Stress and fatigue often become cumulative and are related to factors such as demanding work environments, inadequate staffing, mandated shift work, and toxic workplace cultures. Unless addressed, these will lead to a state of chronic stress and exhaustion.

What causes you the most stress in your nursing position?

What makes you the most tired from work?

  • Chronic stress has been linked to major impacts on one’s life, such as burnout, unhealthy coping behaviours, and negative effects on nurses’ immune systems and quality of life. 
  • Chronic exhaustion can permeate every part of a nurse’s life, regardless of their role or workplace. The impact of this degree of fatigue shows up in various ways. Maybe some of the following look familiar to you:
  • No energy to care for yourself, your loved ones, or anyone else
  • Your time off is spent caregiving for loved ones, leaving less time for you
  • Feeling too tired to go out and do the things you used to love to do
  • Health issues such as weight gain, chronic pain, and high blood pressure, and more

The unfortunate part of this situation is that nurses are experiencing emotional depletion on a massive scale. This is very real and often related to the demands of their workplaces. This state has been normalized, leading nurses to feel apathetic about their role in health care. More importantly, it may impact the nurse’s self-worth.

Has your stress and exhaustion reached a chronic stage?

How do you know it has reached this stage?

Find Out What
Self-Care Means For You & What Will Work For You.

People talk about “self-care practices” all the time. These practices are often not sustainable because they come from a cookie-cutter approach. 

I work with my clients through deep inquiry and explore how to develop a healthy, sustainable, and resilient lifestyle despite the chaotic work environments in which they work.

Built on a specific 7-step process I have developed, our work together occurs in several ways to support you in learning about the impact of your challenges and identifying your strengths to meet those challenges to build a consistent self-care practice.

Specific Assessments

I’m trained in various psychotherapeutic and coaching methods and believe in an evidence-informed approach to my client’s work. Depending on your reasons for seeking support, I will ask you to complete assessments (done together or on your own for discussion in our first session). Based on your assessment outcomes, we’ll develop personalized strategies to guide your progress.

Our Work Together

My extensive background in nursing, psychotherapy, and coaching informs my professional services. I am well-versed in various approaches, from solution-focused to positive psychology, applied neuroscience, narrative and health coaching and dream work interpretation. You are seeking support because you are in pain. But remember, everyone’s journey is unique. What works for one may not work for another. That’s why our work is tailored specifically to your needs and how you make the necessary changes. At the heart of our work is the understanding that you are unique as is your path to balance and well-being.

Dream Work Interpretation

If clients want to explore their life’s challenges in this way, part of deep inquiry may involve interpretation of their dream work. Together, we can explore the profound messages dreams are waiting to reveal.

Transformational Processes

I developed a 7-step framework after seeing several nurse clients and identified common patterns of struggle across these clients. However, this framework is a guideline, not a prescription! I guide my clients through a unique opportunity for self-discovery and development based on several activities that lead to positive changes in mindset, beliefs, and emotional healing. Learning new coping skills, discarding negative habits, overcoming fears, and developing resilience are all part of this self-discovery…it is possible!

What My Clients Say About Our Work Together

A note to say a huge thank you for the difference in how I am feeling now compared to when I first reached out to you. I can’t exactly remember what I said in that first email to you, however, I felt filled with guilt, fear & self-doubt. I also remember how I felt after our first call together. I truly felt listened to & that you understood me. Thank you for that.

Our work together has helped me see that I can get that spark back for nursing. However, more importantly, I have that spark back in my home life. My work was consuming me…my thoughts about work consumed me so much. I couldn’t attend to myself much less anyone else, including my husband.

I have started to make some career decisions. I bet you are not surprised! I feel so good about the next part of my nursing story! I am feeling so much more confident. I am so appreciative of all you have taught me, your support, & most importantly supporting me to believe in myself.

I couldn’t be more grateful for our time together, the safe space you create, your unwavering support and your mindfulness. It’s all the little thoughtful approaches that you take that makes it possible for me to feel I can push myself in this time of growth in a very vulnerable area of my life’s experience and not block up that throat chakra. So, thank you for your kindness and loving approach.

I cannot begin to explain how much the whole experience working with you has helped me. As you know, I have been on this journey for some time now and I have to admit I have had many highs and lows. I feel I have new tools that I need to help me continue on my spiritual path. I have a sense of calm, inner peace and strength that I have no doubt you initiated, and for that I thank you!

Linda, you have a special gift, and I am truly honoured that you shared your wisdom, guidance and energy with me.

I absolutely loved sharing in this process with Linda! She is an amazing facilitator, gifted with the ability to “hold the space” as you look inward and reveal wonderful new thoughts, ideas, and revelations.

Holding space is a conscious act of being present, open, allowing and protective of what another needs in each moment. Linda is the personification of this phrase. Thoughtful questions and gentle guidance combined with sincere caring, and intuition lead me to new messages and understanding. I am more confident to take the next step and begin a new chapter. Thank you, Linda!
