The ever-increasing emotional and physical demands of nursing, the impact of compassion fatigue and the familiar feeling of being undervalued has resulted in 40% of Nurses experiencing burnout at some point in their career. (2019 statistics) and that is before the impact of COVID-19!

Nursing is a career of polarities. It is rewarding yet challenging, fulfilling yet frustrating and encouraging yet exhausting. It can take a toll on mental health.

Professional anxiety relates to how we feel at work, our workplace relationships, and our goals, dreams, and ideals for our career, business, or money and wealth.

You think you can't earn more, you're on a structured pay scale, and you have to give more to make more.

And the fallout of that is, you feel even more exhausted, more guilty with even less time for your loved ones or doing what you love to do, and it's a never-ending spiral that you can't escape.

Come and be with us and learn the

Lauren’s Story

For over 35 years, I’ve been a nurse, and there’s much I have loved. But like so many, I worked long hours, taking on all the stress, not getting paid what I was worth and yet continually being asked to give more. Between juggling family, a partner, being responsible for teams and others at work, I found myself at the bottom of my list.

I was working in the operating theatre in a busy Melbourne hospital and had been there for seven years. I was holding out for long-service leave, awarded after ten years of service.

But, the truth was, I didn’t know how I was going to get through those last three years. I was no longer enjoying work; I was hiding my love of holistic health by staying in line with western medicine. I felt exhausted, resentful, and I was anxious about money. I was responsible for my family and mortgage, which meant full-time work; I needed job security. I felt trapped and didn’t see that I had any choice. Running on empty, I wasn’t doing a good job anywhere in my life.

My work was suffering, my relationships were suffering, it was affecting my health physically, emotionally and mentally. I hit rock bottom. I was burned out. I knew it was time to reach out for help.

Through coaching and evidence based stress reduction tools Lauren moved from burnout and blaming to soaring free. Lauren now teaches caring professionals her soaring free method. Burn Bright Don’t Burnout

Elaina’s Story

The founder and host of the Happy Nurse Podcast, Elaina Mullery RN studied nursing at The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. She spent the first ten years of her career in Scotland before moving to Perth, Australia in 2010. Her clinical experience has been across a variety of settings.

Elaina has first-hand experience of stress and burnout. It was this experience during the early years of her career, which led her to develop a passion for personal development. She has a diploma in Mindfulness and Meditation, is a certified hypnotherapist and a certified NLP Practitioner. These tools and skills have helped her to develop self care tools and strategies that she now shares with Nurses Internationally.

In the UK over the past six years, on average, one nurse per week has ended their life by suicide.

These figures are very confronting and it is one of the reasons why Elaina has made it her mission to reduce burnout in nurses. As a profession, we are kind, compassionate and empathic professionals whose role is to ensure our patients are receiving the care they require and to be their advocate as and when needed.

We often forget, though, to offer ourselves the same compassion that we so freely give to others. Burnout can creep up on us if we are not careful and we can find ourselves with empty cups and nothing left to give. Multiple studies have shown that mindfulness is an effective and useful tool in the reduction of the impact of stress on healthcare professionals.

With this in mind she set out on a mission to find a way to make it easy for her nursing colleagues to ensure that all their self-care needs were being met.

Elaina is on a mission to reduce anxiety and burnout in nursing. She does this by promoting self-compassion to her nursing colleagues via her coaching, podcast, media appearances and webinars. She is available for consultation in the corporate sector and is a highly sought-after speaker for nursing and medical seminars, where her direct and practical style strikes a chord with her strongly engaged audience.
