Attuned In Practice

Hearts Aligned, Practice Refined

At Attuned in Practice, we believe that all frontline practitioners deserve learning spaces to reflect and connect with their core beliefs, values, and the sense of purpose that drew them into their work or chosen career path. We know from our own practice that these spaces can be normative and restorative, helping to sustain us.

When practitioners are afforded the opportunity to connect and reflect on subjects central to their work, this shapes their practice for the better and sets them up to bring their best selves to work. Reflective, attuned practitioners then inform a better organisational and whole-system response to people using those services.

Our aim is to provide learning and reflective spaces for practitioners to come together. We choose reflective practitioners to lead and provide key insights, inviting deeper thinking and reflection on key aspects of frontline work in Health, Education, and Social Care. These practitioners speak from their own experience and practice, creating a safe and nurturing space that helps attendees think more deeply about their roles. The gathering and opportunity to share are supportive to attendees and help build a community with shared values and a collective understanding of the challenges and norms of working in frontline practice.

Attendee Feedback

"I felt it nourished my soul. Aisling's voice was calm and clear, and she held my attention throughout the session. It was very informative and delivered with an easy flow. I felt very privileged to meet and connect with the other participants in my small group.”
“Enjoyed the whole session, particularly the discussions in the small groups with the two ladies sharing the space with me. It was so valuable to be reminded of the 'softer' side of person-to-person interactions and the need for self-care.”
"It was thought-provoking content presented in a gentle way. It's always so affirming to gather with like-minded people with a focus on all that is better for ourselves, our participants, and the world."

CPD Approved

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is essential for frontline practitioners to maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills throughout their careers. This includes all aspects of good practice, both clinical and non-clinical. External CPD activities, which are often conducted outside the usual work environment, play a key role in this ongoing education process. Our seminars and conferences are often CPD-approved, ensuring that attending these events contributes directly to the professional development of frontline practitioners, helping them stay updated and proficient in their fields.
