The Self-Soothing Sessions
The Self-Soothing Sessions
Learn how to listen to and respond to your emotional needs from a place of love, care, trust and respect.
When we rely on external esteem to feel happy and secure, we feel anything but these. Instead, we feel worse and as if we have no control over our lives.
Each time we experience an emotion that we have a negative association with, we try to push it down or away. In turn, when we want to feel good, we look for artificial boosts that provide us with temporary relief and 'happy' feelings but are underpinned by blame and shame.
It doesn't have to be like this.
The Self-Soothing Sessions is a series of five audios and accompanying resources that teach you how to take the first steps in learning how to healthily self-soothe. Learn how to healthily regulate your emotions instead of dysregulating them and inadvertently compromising your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
Clients, readers and listeners frequently ask about initial steps they can take that will enable them to learn how to take care of their feelings and calm down responses in situations where they tend to engage in unhealthy self-soothing. They engage in some of their worst self-destructive habits in response to feelings of loneliness, boredom and stress and feel stuck in a vicious cycle. For instance, breaking No Contact or saying yes for the wrong reasons because of the onset of discomfort and having no inner support and tools to respond to their needs constructively and lovingly.
Get a crash course in self-soothing and a host of practical suggestions for compassionately shifting the way you respond to your emotions so that you can start healthily meeting your needs and feel more safe and secure within yourself and your relationships.
Topics covered include:
- Why we’ve learned to use people pleasing, perfectionism, overthinking, overgiving, over-responsibility, dating, alcohol, food, etc., as forms of [unhealthily] self-soothing.
- How habits work and how we can inadvertently end up reinforcing destructive patterns and feelings of being ‘not good enough’.
- Over 50 self-soothing ideas and practices, including insight into why these are effective.
