For the past 30 years, Jayne Ellis has worked as a nurse in hospitals, hospice and community settings, and as a lecturer in the faculty of health at a London University. Today, she still works clinically as part of the emergency medical teams at local racecourses and for a private ambulance service.
Working in a profession where you feel that you are in a position to help and make a difference isn’t just a job but becomes part of who you are. Nothing comes close to the feeling that you have touched another’s life and helped them through a difficult time.
But, I am aware that this type of work comes at a price to those of us who do it and that price can be ourselves.
My passion is to deliver training that provides those in a caring role with the skills and knowledge they need to be able to do their job to the best of their ability. My years of experience and the diverse settings of my career have shaped the way I teach, and I am a passionate, imaginative, and innovative teacher, graded as outstanding by Ofsted.
Having completed courses in Compassion Fatigue, I have developed bespoke training to help carers of both humans and animals bring balance and healing to themselves and support their teams.
