  • Even though you may not technically be alone being with a child or children, it can still feel lonely. Particularly now, with restrictions in support and social contact, loneliness is being felt even more.
Try not to judge yourself for feeling lonely and missing connection. It is normal to feel this way.

  • The experience of PANIC is very distressing. It’s a full body experience - mind and body are racing with intense physical and emotional responses.
Panic can be confusing when it happens for no apparent reason. It can also lead to panic about panic- fearing another similar experience happening again.
So how can you cope?
1. Don’t use thinking to stop panic - your logical mind isn’t clear during panic so you need to use physical and grounding techniques first...
2. Practice breathing - there are lots of techniques out there so try some out and find one you like. Apps like oakmeditation and calm are great to have on your phone when needed. But also practice every day so it becomes second nature otherwise it will be challenging to apply effectively in a moment of panic.
3. Grounding - Use your senses to get in touch with your environment and focus your mind on the safety around you e.g look outside up towards to sky- what can you see? What colours? What shapes? What sounds can you hear?
4. Ask for help - don’t expect yourself to know how to cope on your own. It is brave to ask for help. You are not alone.

  • We can’t have the comfortable ones without feeling the uncomfortable ones.
Our natural response to uncomfortable feelings is to suppress, ignore, or fix them.  However, by learning how to feel all the feelings without fear, we can feel much more in control of our choices, not being led by avoiding discomfort.
Anxiety therapy helps you in learning to tolerate discomfort so that you no longer need to use time or energy trying to resist feelings.
They are not as scary as you may think.

  • PHOTO A DAY.
Nature is engaging and calming. How about taking a a photo each day of something you see that is soothing?
This can help focus your attention on what is around you and calm a busy mind.
