The 3 Breath Reset is a resource I developed to help therapists feel centered, grounded, and focused. You can use it to bring your attention to the people and tasks in front of you with more mindfulness and intention while taking a moment for yourself. Getting in the habit of using it regularly can nurture your compassion resilience.

The COVID pandemic no longer feels brand new. It’s not as chaotic and disruptive as it was in past months. However, it’s an ongoing challenge full of uncertainty with no real end in sight. It’s a Time for Extra Care. Doing therapy well requires that therapists’ own well-being is in good shape. This is true under the best of circumstances, but becomes even more so in difficult times.
