MEDIA  SHIELD COACHING

Jobs in the media figure on lists of the highest stress professions due to deadlines, multitasking, lack of preparation time, unpredictable working environment.

Frontline journalists are exposed to the horrors of war and traumatic events. People who share passion for best quality journalism and are ready to risk their lives to expose the truth are usually compassionate and empathetic. Covering conflicts, witnessing violence, meeting the victims means feeling fear, horror and helplessness. Having symptoms after a traumatic event is natural and not a sign of “professional weakness”.

 Coaching will not substitute medical treatment, so if you are a survivor of a traumatic event you should see a trusted doctor first. PTSD can affect your physical health in many ways, so you might consider a variety of treatment, coping strategies and additional resources. Coaching can be helpful if you feel you need to restore your sense of control, work through negative feelings.

Coaching is based on respect, trust and confidentiality. What coaching has to offer is the equality in the relationship. Coaching will not give you ready answers but it will bring pertinent questions. Coach will accompany you in attending your own needs for development, stress management, and facilitate the internal dialogue.
