Protecting Practitioners at Risk of Professional

Trauma and Fatigue

We can show you how to buffer the impact of professional trauma and fatigue to help you stay happy and healthy in the careers you love.


 It is not acceptable that we are losing highly trained experienced practitioners due to ill health, frustration and burnout.

Meet the Co-Founders

Im a full time Counsellor and Psychotherapist in private practice, also taking referrals from EAPs. I also train and write. 

'Looking through a Lens of Terribleness' was my MSc research project. Exploring and understanding professionals needs when they are working with and listening to those in trauma. Learning to care for ourselves is an absolute necessity, when we're caring for and supporting others.

I bring my research and a range of front line and management experience in counselling, domestic abuse services, and family services.

I originally trained as a social worker and have over a decade’s experience in frontline and management supporting women experiencing domestic abuse, addictions, and trauma, in custody and the community, and currently running a regional complex needs service.

Previously an expert in not practising what I preached and neglecting my own wellbeing.

Graduate of the Self Care school of experience; as in I didn’t do it, and paid the price with my health.


Roz Ashton




I am a full time financial controller, (MAAT), with experience in sales and marketing. 

I am an ulcerated colitis survivor & now a pouchi!

Self care was never my strong point but I have learned the hard way and am still learning! I am learning to look after myself & say no on a regular basis. 


Like my Co-Founders I don’t always get it right, but that’s the challenge, evolving and learning and now in my role at SelfCare Psychology, passing it on!
