I sometimes have clients getting in touch to discuss whether or not they should come to their session later in the week because they are feeling run-down or unwell. To me, a very important part of our personal self-care is noticing when we are feeling run-down, unwell and in need of some rest.
Sometimes when we are run-down or busy, having a Rosen session can be just what we need. Having a session might allow us to slow down a little in our week, take some time out to listen to ourselves and have the space of the session to rest and return to ourselves. This may especially be the case if we find ourselves giving a lot to others through our daily lives (such as to our families, friends, clients or our work).
There are other times though, when it may be that we need to take space for ourselves and honour our needs in a different way. It might mean rescheduling a session and taking that time to process, rest or recover from illness. This is particularly true when we are unwell. It is great to let ourselves know that we can honour our needs and allow ourselves to rest and recover when this happens. It is also a way of taking care of those around us, including our practitioners. As a practitioner, this is also an important part of my care for myself and for you as my clients, so when I am ill, I will also take time off to recover and care for myself.
If you are ever unsure about whether or not to come for your session, please do get in touch. Ideally with as much notice as possible, but in some circumstances, this is not possible. I do have a cancellation policy, and I ask that clients pay for any sessions cancelled within 24 hours of the session time. Though I do also take into consideration the circumstances involved.
