New Zoom Group starting 29th October 2020: Please contact us for further information on this opportunity to reset your life We meet online every Thursday at 11am (Hong Kong time)/1pm (Queensland time) for 6 weeks. The first week is 90 minutes and the following weeks are one hour.
I love working in groups because of the people we meet, the connections and community that are formed and the support given and received - it is very powerful.
Helping Mothers Help Themselves This new online group is for a limited number of mothers of children with or without a diagnose. As mothers, we often struggle with the loneliness that accompanies mental or physical health issues in our children. Often we dare not open up to friends and conversations can even be difficult within the family. Increasing stress and depressed feelings in our children and in the parents, or in this case, the mothers can cause anxiety and excessive worrying or a constant need to want to help the child in their recovery. In our group, we will teach you EFT and other techniques to reduce stress, calm down the autonomic nervous system and find more balance in your life. When you begin to de-stress and worry less - your child may feel less pressure to recover for the parents. Their guilt for causing so much anxiety in the family may reduce and perhaps even help them in their own recovery. Our family systems are complex and when one person embarks on a path of regaining some semblance of equilibrium - other family members may find their own ways.
The majority of sessions are currently delivered via Zoom and like many you may value being in the comfort of your home and enjoying this convenience of not having to travel. Zoom is also giving practitioners more freedom to work remotely around the world which is beautiful. Especially in my work with groups, it is a wonderful experience to come together with people from different countries and often different cultures and learning that essentially we all share similar experiences, concerns, fears and uplifting emotions.
How do you notice when things improve? It depends on what you are trying to achieve. But overall, a reduction in stress will reflect in reduction of physical discomfort and/or reduction in obsessive thinking about possible negative outcomes. Sometimes, there is a huge shift and you feel much lighter and able to make decisions or set boundaries that previously you were unable to make - and sometimes, there are many small changes. The mother who loses her anxiousness and is then a source of comfort for her family. The partner who keeps a clear head and is thus able to be the shoulder to lean on and a source of strength and love.
Sometimes, we feel stuck in life and may not have hope - but please have faith that things can improve and challenges also pose learning opportunities that help us to better cope in future. You may come out of a situation much stronger than you thought possible.
Don't let the fear of what could happen, make nothing happen!
