About CounselorWellness.com

Counselor Wellness is a website I developed to support counselors and other helping professionals in maintaining and improving their own wellness – while in the service of supporting others. My name is Elizabeth Venart, and I am the Founder and Director of The Resiliency Center in Ambler, Pennsylvania and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Private Practice.

Here you will find information about practitioner wellness, factors that challenge wellness, assessment tools to gain a better understanding the influence of your work on your wellbeing, practices to promote wellness and resiliency, and multiple local and national resources on the topic. The website highlights information on several practices known to contribute considerably to practitioner wellness, including supervision and consultation, the value of community, and ways to transform hope. Through the resources found on this site, I hope you will learn information and strategies that inspire and invite you to prioritize your own wellness - and the wellness of all those in our practitioner community.  When we are well ourselves, our ability to witness suffering, offer hope, and provide meaningful counsel and connection expand dramatically.

Laughter!

Join me in making the wellness of our counseling community a top priority!

Each one of us is unique. We have our own vulnerabilities to the work, and our favorite strategies to promote our wellness will vary. To begin the dialogue about wellness, let me share that I LOVE getting a massage, enjoy painting and drumming, receive acupuncture regularly, value the support of my professional colleagues at The Resiliency Center, love hiking and time outdoors, and cherish the support of friends and family. One of my favorite activities to promote wellness is laughter. Laugher is my medicine. In this photo, I am laughing with some of my favorite people in the world. What a joy!

I look forward to hearing from you — through our online community, on my blog, or by email.  Please share your questions, comments, favorite self-care strategies, and stories of healing. Thanks!

Wishing you peace, joy, and resiliency!
Elizabeth
