Free Self Care Workshop

‘Self-Care, Self-Aware - Your Health Matters!’


Sixways Stadium, Warriors Way


Wednesday 30th January 2019  (2pm – 5pm)


Practising medicine is a great privilege – but currently it often feels burdensome. Ask a hundred people how they are, and they say “Fine!” – Fearful, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotionally imbalanced. Ask a hundred doctors, and they can’t answer – they are too busy looking after their tients! Everybody uses denial. We owe it to ourselves, our patients and our families to work on seeking balance and building our resilience'.

Dr Andrew Tresidder has been a Somerset GP since 1989, is a past Somerset LMC member and Bristol Medical School GP academy lead, the GP patient safety lead for Somerset CCG, a GP appraiser and educator, and a Somerset Clinician Support Service advocate. His particular interest is the health of health professionals, both hardware ‘body’ and software ‘being’. 


During this workshop, Andrew will discuss ways to enhance your personal resilience and your enjoyment of life and medicine:

–     Doctors’ health and stress physiology 

–     The physiology of emotions, with a particular focus on personal power in the consulting room – The drama triangle

–     Loss and healthy grieving: change, loss, grief, and growth beyond

–     Ten top tips for being a patient

–     Ten top tips for being a doctor to a physician patient 

–     Ten top tips for doctoring children whose parents are doctors

–     Interpersonal energy flows 

–     The wheel of life, and some simple tools to re-balance


Participation in this workshop aims to be interactive, engaging and fun, providing tools and insights to help you combat the stress of medical practice. All are welcome and friendly networking is encouraged!  3 CPD points available for this learning activity.


Attendance at this event is FREE, but to ensure commitment we ask for refundable deposit of £10.
