Supporting Healthcare Facing Crisis

The Covid-19 crisis is impacting us all. For healthcare professionals who work day and night, the impact is specific and dire: The risk of contamination, constant pressure, long hours and the impossibility to be there for everyone who needs you. We are here to support healthcare workers facing the corona crisis.

As a healthcare professional you probably entered the profession with a vocation: helping others, doing something for humanity. Now is the time to test your calling to the limit. Beautiful: That is what we do it for! But also hard: people will get sick and people will die.

You go to work every day, do what you can and keep your courage and morale. This is only sustainable if you take care of yourself. 

To support healthcare professionals helping us all, we offer FREE ONLINE Empathic Intervision SESSIONS. 

In Empathic Intervision, colleagues come together to explore situations, questions and problems with an intent to learn from each other, improve expertise and co-evolve new insights to tackle professional difficulties.

In 90 minutes, online, from wherever you are, we guide you through a process to catch your breath, share experiences, be heard and take care of yourself and each other.
