Reflective practice is a way of exploring your own experiences in order to improve performance and contentment. There are two main components covered in this training: 'Listening' and 'Self Care'. The former is focused on being present with those around us and the perception required to identify the real message being communicated. The latter offers a space to reflect on the need to look after ourselves, especially when working in highly pressurised or emotive environments.
