Hygge is widely coined as the ‘Danish secret to happiness’ and resonates strongly with the Polyvagal approach to therapy.
An element of my work focuses on supporting clients to identify personal cues of ‘safety’ and ‘danger’ in their environment, cues which unconsciously influence their mental state.
Following the Hygge philosophy take a look at the video and consider ways that you might like to make subtle yet powerful changes to environment to improve your mood and mental health.

Breaking the Anxiety Cycle

How to break the cycle of anxiety. I really like this video, especially in the context of the COVID situation. For nearly a year now, we have been urged to stay at home, and for good reason. During this time we have experienced a prolonged period of what I call socially enforced avoidance’. So it stands to reason then, that the prospect of reintegrating ourselves back into ‘everyday life’ might trigger a certain amount of anxiety. To an extent at least, our logical thinking brain knows that the risks are low, dependent on our situation of course. Whilst on the other hand our nervous system continues to identify cues of danger, responding by releasing anxiety chemicals into our systems activating patterns of protection, such as avoidance. If this is something you are struggling with then you are not alone. Take a look at this video which explains how you can start to break the anxiety cycle.

A great video which explains why a polyvagal approach to therapy is so important in addressing a wide range of difficulties including relationship problems, chronic stress, anxiety, depression and more. In attending sessions you can be supported to make change from the inside out, because sometimes you just can’t think your way out of the problem.

So often clients come to therapy looking to get rid of their difficult emotions, dismissing them as bad pointless or irrational. Through therapy clients come to re-frame their understanding of emotions as a functional response, an invaluable resource which motivates us to change, connect us with others and protect us from physical or psychological dangers. Take a look at the video to give you an insight into this approach.
