This video post is an introduction to the work I’m doing with Compassionate Professionals and the concept behind the work at Fausta’s Place to Ponder.

Hi! Welcome to Fausta’s Place to Ponder. I’m Fausta Luchini, a holistic life coach, and I work with therapists, healers, first responders – any compassionate professionals. I work with people wha are trying to make the world a better place. Sometimes, that’s overwhelming.
Maybe you’ve heard the Mr Rodgers quote:
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me,
“Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
But what if you are the helper?
If people come to you because they are in pain, emotional or physical pain, or trying to overcome barriers in their life, it affects you. Whether you’re a nurse in the ER, a social worker for children who’ve been abused, a surgeon, or an immigration attorney, when you’re bombarded with problems, surrounded by people needing attention- it can be overwhelming. It’s easy to lose your balance, to feel like you can’t keep up. We hardly ever have all the resources our clients need.
Because you’re the professional, you hold it together at work, but what happens when you leave work? Are you doing paperwork and worrying at home on the week-ends? Do you wake up at 3 a.m. thinking about the client who’s about to get evicted, the child who’s not going home to her mom, or the patient that was not doing so well? Having trouble staying focused? Maybe you’re feeling more pessimistic – like you’re just waiting for the next bad thing to happen? You can start to wonder if you’re even making a difference.
But you don’t want to give up – you love your job. You care about your patients, your clients. You don’t want to leave – you just want to do the work you love without feeling like you’re drowning in other people’s pain. Without losing your self.
That’s where I come in. At Fausta’s Place to Ponder, I help you take a step back, reconnect with yourself, and figure out what needs to happen for you so you can keep making the world a better place. Feeling overwhelmed doesn’t mean you can’t do it, it doesn’t mean you’re doing a bad job, it just means you’re being called to re-connect with yourself and your own wisdom, to explore other resources, and to let your new energy and wisdom shine, at work and in your life.
I want to be clear – I’m not talking about helping you work harder, or more efficiently. It’s not about being more productive or accomplishing more. It’s about supporting you to bring your unique gifts to the work you do, to your clients and patients.
So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, feeling numb, or struggling to give your clients the quality of care you want them to have, message me. Let’s talk about how we can work together so you have a life that lets you shine.
