Barefoot Helper


    The systems that we work within sometimes breed a sense of hopelessness, taking excitement and creativity away from workers. But if we are to help people away from destructive behaviour patterns, self-defeating thought processes, poor skills in parenting, self-care, relationships and communication...If we are to help them create new lives, then we as workers need to feel free to create work that suits their unique needs. We also need to feel happy in our work: effective and professional, but also proud of our personal contribution. "The Barefoot Helper" is about celebrating the spirit and embracing the creativity of human beings. It encourages clients and workers to understand who they really are and what they really want; and helps them to create clear goals based on these insights. It draws on spiritual thinking and modern therapies to explore how happiness comes from: doing the least harm; focused effort; clarity of thought; respect; awareness; clear goals; and making time both to take action and to stop 'doing things' and experience life directly. Intensely practical and useful, it focuses on where change occurs naturally, and helps us encourage change based on these insights and empowering progress whilst doing the least harm.
