‘Moving Beyond Trauma’ Talk Series

‘Moving Beyond Trauma’ Talk Series

Hidden trauma affects all of us.

It can show up as perfectionism, people pleasing and self-judgement.

In this session for Embodiment Unlimited, Jane and I talked about forgiveness, parenting guilt and how we didn’t fit the classic parenting portrait photo…

Plus how the parenting books didn’t exactly work for us in our ‘frontline parenting’. 📗🤷🏽

How to Have a Successful Meltdown

How to Have a Successful Meltdown

In ‘How to Have a Successful Meltdown’, I share some of the tools that have deeply changed my life and the lives of my clients.

We’re talking Vulcans, roller coasters and the Stress Cycle.

I’m bringing out the Spock ears! 🚀

These tools bring me home again and again to a deep place of peace.

And laughter.

(We’ll be looking at how to find the ‘giggle point’ for overcoming fear!).

You’ll experience a movement meditation and I very much recommend moving and stretching throughout the whole thing if that feels good!

(And feel free to listen while doing the housework to liven it up!)

The ‘How to have a Successful Meltdown’ free workshop includes:

– How to complete the stages of the Stress Cycle (and why it’s so important for preventing trauma for us, for children and other loved ones)

– Fun ways to support children and ourselves during a meltdown, including how to release anxiety with play

– How to find the healing ‘Giggle Point’ when working with yourself, clients or loved ones

I hope the tools are really useful to you (hey, this lady looks like she’s super strong following her roller coaster ride!).

And if you feel the pull, here’s where you can find out more about the tools I use and work with me.​

The needs underneath our triggers

The needs underneath our triggers

Jayaraja is known for his playful style in teaching Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Mindfulness (in these free videos we get to see four of his crazy hats!).

I’ve found his teachings deeply transformative, particularly when trying to find win-wins with my kids… but also in every relationship in my life.

In these videos Jayaraja explains:

What are the seven categories of needs… and how are they essential to understanding why we get triggered?

Mindfulness and embodiment tools we can use to calm our bodies when we’re triggered

Jayaraja also takes us through a meditation.
