Is this why we flinch sometimes?
I suppose so, we all have a personal space of safety
Yes that's what I meant.
It's so good! Totally absorbing all the information - thank you so well explained - great!
This is wonderful to learn.
Lovely to see you Rebekah thank you
does this mean we have restricted drive too, as we have the restrictions of lockdown?
can’t see you
all part of the same tribe
Allowing ourselves to use the support of others is really hard - when you like being the one that's supporting others - but understand it's so important thank you
So true Beverliann!
Mindfulness has really helped me during this season - thank you for all the resources too
Really useful presentation thankyou
This is very useful information! Thank you!
very powerful excercise, offered a emotional release of a tear in my eye and a peacful feeling
That was amazing thank you Rebekah so lovely!
Me too Andrew
Thank you, great activity. Do you have a script for the safe place imagery task?
Never heard of Compassionate Image - thank you really helpful Rebekah
Compassionate Letter sounds very powerful and restorative - will definitely try these exercises thank you
There’s lot of resources online! This is just one
Thank you Shilpa
Thank you Shilpa
We run a CFT group for 12 - 15 year olds in my CAMHS service. It has been very helpful so far
Any suggestions for someone who isn't able to come up with a safe space (even an imaginary one?)
In my service we teach children mindfulness imagery during relaxation sessions - the children we see are age 8 and above
QUESTION: I've noticed that many clients (and the public!) appear to be using potentially harmful ways of activating neurochemicals/transmitters (eg dopamine/opiates) such as substances- how would we be able to activate other systems in order to manage this in the current crisis?
Thanks - really helpful
You're absolutely right Rebekah thank you so much!
Thank you all :)
I find using the ‘need to put your own oxygen mask on first’ analogy usually helps people get it.
