6 Week Online Healing Series
14 October to 18 November 2021
The 6 Week Online Healing Series is a great introductory course to learn some key concepts related to trauma, have the opportunity to apply these learnings to your own life and connect with others in a facilitated setting.
The course has been developed for those wanting to start/continue their healing journey or who may want to participate in a healing week but circumstances of distance or other commitments prevent at this time.
There will be a maximum of twelve participants to ensure safety and sense of confidentiality.
Sessions take place on Thursdays 4-5pm AEST.
The presenter delivering the series will be Jessica Frisina PostGradDip Psych., MEdPsych.
Jessica is a psychologist who has experience in research and practice settings working with a range of presentations. Jessica is particularly interested in trauma and educational spaces to provide others with the opportunity to learn more about themselves and their lives.
Each session will cover a different topic as outlined below.
Feeling safe is often very different from being physically safe. Learn the importance of safety which is a key element for healing. You will have the opportunity to consider if you feel safe across various areas of your life – at home, your workplace, with your therapist and other relationships. Considerations to enhance safety in your life will be presented.
This session will be focused on Attachment theory and discovering what your attachment style might be. Our attachment style largely determines the relationships we have with others and ourselves. Knowledge of our attachment style can be useful to start relating to others in ways that we want. You will have the opportunity to start making these connections within yourself.
The importance of recognising our emotions and feeling them will be explored. Whether you tend to be over or under-regulated and how you can address this to enjoy life more fully will be discussed. Strategies for enhanced emotional regulation will also be explored.
Learn what is a trigger, how to identify when we are triggered and some suggestions on how to 'de-trigger'. Information regarding the nervous system and brain functioning will be explored and you will be given the opportunity to learn step-by-step strategies to help yourself and/or others when triggered.
Do you say yes when you want to say no? Or, say no when you want to say yes? If you can relate to these questions then this session may be particularly useful for you. An explanation of boundaries will be provided in addition to recognising if you have poor boundaries and how to improve your boundaries. Better use of boundaries is key to healing trauma as boundaries help keep us safe, healthy and happy.
Caring and nurturing ourselves is critical to a healthy and happy life, however considering and catering for one’s own needs can be difficult if you have experienced trauma. The healing journey begins within and this session can help you learn ways to start loving and connecting with yourself more. Ongoing support services will be outlined for you to consider if this is right for you.
This is a group setting, so you will need to ensure you are ready to be part of a group before signing up. If you are needing more one-on-one support at this stage, please contact the office on 02 4998 6003 to discuss counselling options before joining the group.
Meditation with Demi
Beginning Monday 1st November 2021 at 7pm
Join us for a night of Relaxation and Rejuvenation to set some healthy Intentions for the weeks ahead with our new Online Mediation Series.
During these you will gather useful tools for your everyday life which will assist you to maintain a positive vibe while continuing your healing journey.
Each session will leave you more relaxed, allowing for a calmer mind, to have more clarity and focus for the week ahead. This will then build on what you already know or give you space to open your mind larger to new concepts.
You can expect to have more positive energy to support you along your journey for the week and you will be filled with Love, Light and a sense of Peace.
