Pandemic gave me a recognition that our patients were connected through therapy or medications management with the providers they had been seeing even before the beginning of this Pandemic.

But it was heartbreaking to watch the people in the workforce, healthcare fields especially the frontline workers, the nurses, and doctors, especially my own colleagues suffer in silence. Mothers struggling to care for their children and at the same time having to maintain full-time jobs.

Many healthcare workers felt helpless and traumatized to see the pain of millions struggling with COVID, families grieving for their loved ones who succumbed to the ill effects of this dreaded illness.

Being in the business of caregiving somewhere their own needs got compromised and led to a barrage of stress, anxiety, and emotions that they had never felt before. They either didn’t know who to go to or were still reeling under the stigma of needing help for their mental well-being. Many were scared to go seek help due to fear of either losing their jobs or jeopardizing their future job prospects, again due to stigma attached to mental health.

That is what led me into starting this coaching practice. Through coaching, I hope to provide this long deprived population in the workforce, parenting, frontline, healthcare, or industrial setting, who have always made caring for others a priority, the support, a chance to be heard, tools for their own self-care, ability to handle stressors, handle emotions and prioritize their own emotional well-being.
