#7: Kit Wisdom, humanising health care and learning environments

Kit Wisdom from Wise (https://www.wisephysiotherapy.com.au/) is a physiotherapist training in hakomi mindful somatic psychotherapy. Kit is committed to providing healthcare with humanity, recognising the full experience of the human being and the mind body connection. She brings a curious lens to how learning environments can also cultivate a more human approach through developing safety and recognising our physiological experiences.

In this episode, Kit shares her experience of learning and exploring the hakomi method and what it means for her as a health care professional, but also as a learner. Kit is passionate about the place of story in physical health care and has been incorporating this in her approach to physiotherapy. She explains how we learn pain through our early childhood and that pain is an experience, not just a sensation.

Megan and Kit met in 2018 when they were both studying a Masters in Wellbeing. They discuss their expeirences of engaging in the Masters and some of the challenges they've faced in learning environments. Both Megan and Kit are passionate about the wellbeing and health of staff working with clients and young people and highlight the gap occurring in current models to best support practitioners.
