Intergenerational Trauma 

Through my personal and professional journey so far, I have come to understand the nature of my own challenges and in doing so, track their histories through the generations. This is a process that has been accompanied by feelings of anger and grief and more recently a sense of compassion, as I come to appreciate the resourcefulness of those that have come before. When we acknowledge the influence of Intergenerational Trauma we can begin to step outside of our ‘stories’, honouring resourcefulness and moving forward with a sense of self-compassion and determination to change the narrative for future generations.

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.
