Just uploaded the 3rd video in my therapy course for Anxiety. 💥LINK TO LATEST YOUTUBE VIDEO IN BIO💥 In this video we are going to start making long lasting changes to your anxiety. 🧤🧣 Last time we talked about how it is our thoughts that create anxiety. These thoughts switch on our Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) which leads to symptoms of anxiety. To stop anxiety we must switch off our SNS, to do this we must deal with the thoughts that switched it on in the first place. 🧤🧣 In the video I will show you the 1st step in this process. Hope it is helpful, let me know how you get on. 🧤🧣 #anxietyhelp #mindset #selfhelp #selfhealers #mentalhealth #psychology #psychologistsofinstagram #selfdevelopment #personaldevelopment #healthandwellness #mindsetreset 🧤🧣 Image description: Dr Emma Gray wearing green jumper, exposed brick wall & window in background.

Click link in bio to get your very own daily self-love ritual delivered to your phone via Whatsapp every day 8am & 10pm (m-f). What you’ll get: ⭐A 60 second audio to emotionally prep you for a new day of goal-slaying シ ⭐A self-love note + zero-fluff tool to try to make you feel instantly better whatever you’re going through ✐ ⭐A mini mantra to remind you of how magical & relevant you are before you go to sleep ☾ Before you subscribe, here's your burning questions answered:
⭐
Why are we shutting down the newsletter?
Receiving your new self-love ritual via WhatsApp is going to evolve your self-love journey to the next level. It has an instancy & intimacy that will encourage you to engage more actively, instead of passively.
⭐ Why are we charging you 49p a week to receive this new daily self-love ritual?
Making a financial commitment (even such a small one), will make you feel like you just made an investment in your emotional health, and that you have to honour it, every day. Financial commitments have a powerful impact on accountability for every one of us.
⭐ Are you sure it’s not just about making money? 
Nope. We’d probably make more money not charging for it. Why? Because in any business, free sign-ups way exceed paid sign-ups, and once we had a lot, we could start charging brands for ads. Ad revenue really adds up you know ;). Ofc, it doesn't hurt for us to receive paid subscriptions, but your financial commitment is much more about you taking responsibility for your self-love journey with us. That's what matters. ⭐ … #personalgrowth  #selfactualization #thoughtsbecomethings #universehasyourback #positiveselftalk #powerofpositivethinking  #selfbelief #fillyourcup  #girlsgeneration #selflove  #selfloveisthebestlove   #emotions  #selfhelp #selfcare  #therapy  #therapist #holistichealth  #anxiety #emotionalwellness #emotionalhealth  #mentalwellness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #bettertogether #psychologistsofinstagram #loveyourself  #selfservice

Self help Technique: Go back to your childhood. I know this is the new trending therapy for adults; colouring books! They work and how! You can tap into your own childhood pass time to unlock those blocked creative energies that bog you down. You could read some childhood fairy tales, watch some old school cartoons, even cook yourself a silly childhood treat that was special and unique to you. One of the best healing technique that works for me is, if you have grandparents around, call them, meet them, talk to them. Nothing will take you back to your age of innocence as they will. If you do use any of these, let me know if it worked for you. Let's do this, together is the key. #chanchala #psychologistsofinstagram #psychology #psychotherapy #childhood #adultcolouringbooks #letsdothis #togetheristhekey #togetherness2019 #mentalhealth #mindbodyandsoul #mindandbody #reikihealer #healing #healersofinstagram #pranikhealer #pranikhealing #teenmentalhealth #childmentalhealth #health #healthpsychology #foodforthought #grandparents #loveyourself #love #healyourself #lifecoach

We easily get caught in spirals, ones that take us up & ones that take us down. The key in & out of these spirals is often how we think about things because our thoughts are so powerful in determining how the world effects us. 🧤🧣 #psychology #mindsetreset #healthandwellness #wellbeing #healthy #askatherapist #psychologistsofinstagram #selfcare #selfhealers #mentalhealth

✨Tips on Resolving Couple Conflict - Recognize What You Do✨ . Anyone looking to change will need to first step back and ask themselves “what is it that I am doing that needs to change?” . Yesterday I told you that most conflicts are perpetual (go back to yesterday’s post!). And we know that couples get into negative self-reinforcing cycles. One partner says “I yell at you because you don’t do anything” and the other says “I don’t do anything because you keep yelling at me.” There is no start and no beginning. . Before being able to RESOLVE conflict, you need to know what is happening BETWEEN you two. . Ask yourself this. . What do you do when your partner comes to you? When you get in conflict? . What do you feel in those moments? What do you say to yourself? . Now, what’s the move you make when this happens? . Here’s the next piece. Take these questions and answer them. Get your partner to answer. And then talk about it. You haven’t resolved the conflict yet - but you are gaining insight into what is happening between you two. . Looking for more help to identify your negative interaction cycle? Check out Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson.

If you are very used to carefully listening to what your Inner Critic says to you, having compassion or kindness for yourself is going to be tricky, especially at first. . Taking notice of those harsh, negative thoughts about yourself is a habit. You may have done it since you were little. So when you start to soften the tone of you inner voice/thoughts, or start to say kinder things to yourself, it’s going to feel strange and may even bring up other feelings like anxiety or guilt. . Like with any new habit, it’s about being consistent with it, taking your time, and taking small steps each day. . . . #kindness #compassion #selfcompassion #cft #compassionfocussedtherapy #newwave #therapy #advice #instadaily #tips #psychologistsofinstagram #uncomfortable #feelings #goeasyonyourself #innercritic #mentalhealth #habit
I can't stress enough, on the importance of finding a good teacher, an inspiring mentor, and trustworthy guide. It may be one person, but more often than not, in my experience you'll find that different people fulfil a different kind of purpose. I have so many people I give one or more of these titles to. A seeker will find. If you look within and meditate as to what you really want to learn; you'll find your teacher, mentor or guide. When you find him/her, you know your life has changed. Seek, I urge you to seek your "guru" (it's an all encompassing word in Sanskrit or Hindi, which is synonymous with all three) and you shall find. Let's do this. Together is the key. #psychologistsofinstagram #psychology #chanchala #mentalhealth #teenmentalhealth #childmentalhealth #onlinepsychotherapy #psychotherapy #letsdothis #togetherness2019 #togetheristhekey #healing #healersofinstagram #reikihealer #reiki #pranikhealer #pranikhealing #womenshealth
[ten year challenge bit] I am fortunate to have received my masters from Chapman University almost 5 years ago. If you can't tell from the look on my face, it was a proud day for me.

Tip to Resolve Conflict for Couples: Find the Right Time! . The research by the Gottman institute suggests that 69% of relationship conflicts are perpetual - so it is not about resolving and changing the other person - but rather accepting that you are two separate people. Your goal of coming out of conflict is to create a new space/agreement/experience that works for you both! NOT to change the other person’s thoughts, feelings, opinions, or wishes. . Talk about hot issues NOT in the heat of the moment. This is a hard one. When we are in conflict with our partners, our stress response is activated and you are preparing to fight or flight. You will not resolve anything when discussions escalate. . What can you do instead? . ✨ Schedule time to bring up difficult topics. Don’t do it right before bed, or when your partner has a big meeting or is running out the door. ✨ If you get into conflict, someone needs to pause it - anyone - it doesn’t matter who. ✨ Don’t just walk away. This is called stonewalling - and it sends the other partner into distress. ✨ Take at least 20 minutes for the nervous system to calm back down. During that time, go for a walk or do some thing that engages you - but try not to think about the argument you just had. . ✨ Watch your partner when you are discussing a hot topic. Do they start to look away? Do they look flushed, or short of breath? Maybe they haven’t said anything for awhile. Or maybe this is your experience. This might be a cue that you or your partner has become flooded and you need to take a break. Tuning in to our partners is key when discussing something important - and you need to work within a window of tolerance to be able to resolve your conflict. . How do you stop the conflict when it escalates? ⬇️ . Remember, these posts are not substitute for the help of a mental healthcare professional. If you are struggling in your relationship, reach out to a professional who is trained in providing evidence-based couples therapy.
I freaking love being back in education 🤓 completed my first TMA but can’t submit it until February & can’t begin TMA 02 without feedback from 01 so I’m kinda stuck in limbo. How are you all getting on? ⠀⠀ #apsychologygirl #oustudent #DD102
One thing that I keep telling my clients while I am coaching and giving consult is; Check my words with your OWN inner guidance system. I am a humble human with a lot of knowledge and experience but YOU KNOW YOUR TRUTH BETTER THAN ME. If I say something which according to your feeling is different than it means that it is different. #trustyourself #yourtruth #takehomemessage #psychologistsofinstagram #positivevibes #youknowyou #youdoyou #listentoyourself #guidancesystem #trustyourintuition #takehomemessage #inspirational #onlinecoaching
Couples start as a united front. They are together, a team, protectors of each other. But over time, this changes. When did you stop being on the same team? When did you start playing goalie or defense, and every thing your partner says is an attack on you? Or you attack them? You no longer see each other as teammates, but rather the opponent. . In order to resolve conflict, you both need to be willing to come back on the same team. Some one has to change - somewhere -  otherwise, your relationship never changes. I’m taking this week to talk about ways to resolve conflict - because our relationships matter!

Take your mental health, emotional state and physical well-being very seriously. The most expensive beautiful clothes, make up or a scrumptious meal will be of no value to you, if you don't feel beautiful from within or keep having nagging aches and pains. To heal your life from within is a an acquired knowledge and a learnt skill. Invest a little in your own worth, you are more than the money you earn, or the job you get, the marks you score or the number of friends you have. Let's discover ourselves again.

Recommended Reading: Many of us try to jump into diet and exercise plans without really understanding how complex our metabolism and bodies really are. As a result, we are often disappointed in the outcomes from our efforts. Stephan Guyenet suggest there may be more than the simplistic models we’ve been taught in the past. Understanding our body and brain is key to successful weight loss and overall health. One of my favorite quotes is “Obesity isn’t rocket science. It’s much more complicated.” • • • • • #thehungrybrain #biltmorecounseling #biltmorepsychologyandcounseling #weightlossresults #weightlossupport #hunger #januarygoals #happyandhealthylife #positivebodyimage #setpoint #instinct #obesity #research #nerdy #psychologistsofinstagram #counselorsofinstagram #newyearsresolution #recommendedreading #recommendedbook #dietandexercise #physiology #recommendedbooks #psychologybooks #selfhelpbooks #therapybooks #drmelissaestavillo #drshericlark #nikkiaragon #arkadypetrosyan
👠 The Netflix Exclusive movie Dumplin’ showcases mother-daughter relationships, body image and feelings of worth. ................................................. However, one of the less obvious concepts from the movie comes in Willowdean’s difficulty believing that her colleague might actually be romantically interested in her. ................................................... This is a great example of a CBT construct in action. Our brains tend to pay attention to things in the outside world that fit with what we believe. Therefore, if we have self-critical beliefs about ourselves we tend to notice information that corroborates our beliefs rather than anything that might suggest something different. This might mean putting information through a series of processes before we accept it (for example, minimising or magnifying the significance or discounting information entirely). We then act based on our perception of this information. ............................. In the movie Willowdean struggles to accept that Bo is actually attracted to her as it conflicts so heavily with her view of herself, and what she does next sabotages something that she really wants. It is not until other experiences open her mind to the idea that attractiveness is not limited to her (or society’s) pre-conceived idea that she can contemplate his feelings are genuine, and by allowing an alternative perspective she acts differently, with a very different outcome….. ...................................................... 👠”Figure out who you are and do it on purpose” 👠”Go big or go home, but whatever you do, do it in red shoes”

<> • How many times do you automatically answer “I’m fine” when someone asks how you are? • We all do it at times - me included - without really thinking how we actually are. • Are you ok? • Or are you too busy to think about it? • What would happen if we paused, checked in with ourselves and genuinely answered? Would we still be saying “I’m fine”? • And what would happen next? could it help you to get support, to offload or to get reassurance that someone else understands? Most probably. • Who can you be open and honest with? • #itsoktotalk #aproblemshared #howareyoureally #howareyou #Iamfine #newarkpsychologist #newark #lincs #notts #truth #transformationtuesday #tuesday #psychologistsofinstagram #therapy #psychology #flourishnewark #flourish

To anyone who has experienced a loss, recently or otherwise... There is no right or wrong way to experience your loss, any feelings you have are very normal. There is also no specific amount of time in which you "should be over it", and there is no exact recipe for healing. . .. . If this is you, I am so sorry that this happened. I hope you have people around you to support you and to reach out to you in whatever way you need. To let you know that if you need time alone that is ok. And if you need food, distraction, a hand to hold, anything... That is ok too. . .. . If you are a friend of someone who has suffered a loss... please keep reaching out. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . Image description: Loss can feel like it's tearing you apart. Like a massive hole has opened up inside You, and also in time and space. You are Going about your life and then suddenly you are hit by a wall, blindsided. Everything stops. All around you the world seems to keep turning, people keep talking, laughing, doing. You can feel like you are in another timezone, another dimension, looking out wondering how everything is still going. Feeling as though you are being crushed by the emotion, the vacuum.

If bleaching our assholes was a metaphor for how we feel about trying to be perfect, then f*ck, hand us the full litre. It’s super hard to step outside of ourselves to truly get what it means to actually do that. Because the truth is, it’s a lot of hard work. It’s constant reminders & check-ins with ourselves to be like, hey, girl, stop, you’re doing it again. It shouldn’t feel like you’re trying to push out a massive, perfect poo. DW babe, we’ve got the answer. No need to bleach thy asshole anymore. It comes down to reframing. As in — accept that you will attract humans of exotic tastes. Not everyone is going to like the way your nose slopes, the way you laugh really loudly, the way you act on impulse. But some people? They’re going to love it. Really, really love it. Having a strange face, or belly, or mannerism, is what makes you individual. It’s why the universe bothered to make you in the first place, so you could provide a little — je ne sais quoi. The world needs you to be yourself, because that’s the only way you’re going to attract other humans who love you just as you are. If having the perfect anus makes you happy, go head girl. But ONLY go ahead, if it’s something ‘YOU’ would do. Here's to YOU keeping it real. ... #keepingitreal #authenticity #insecurities #owningit #selfconfidence #selfesteem #integrity #stickittoem #healthythoughts #authenticself #powerwithin #trustyourintuition #createyourreality #innertruth #innerpower #selfempowerment #selfhelp #selfcare #therapy #therapist #holistichealth #anxiety #emotionalhealth #mentalwellness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #bettertogether #psychologistsofinstagram #loveyourself #selfservice
'Now every time I witness a strong person, I want to know What dark did you conquer in your story? Mountains do not rise without earthquakes'. Katherine Mackenett
When you put your head on your pillow at night, do you tell yourself that you have done enough? . I know I have spiralled through the “was I good enough today?” moments. Did I love my children enough? Was I present enough? Did I make mistakes and were they accepted by others? By my partner? . I was listening to The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting by @brenebrown - it is one of my favourite books on parenting but also on being a human. She talked about how we hold ourselves to these prerequisites to be worthy, that “I will be worthy when … if … then… “ . And I want to tell you, you are worthy. . And good enough. . And instead of trying to wait until something happens (or, for the ‘evidence’), maybe you can tell this to yourself today and then allow yourself to engage in your life in a whole hearted and meaningful way. What would you be doing if you were showing up today? . . . #letgo #acceptance #depression #winterblues #justbe #mommylife #ottawamom #momguilt #anxiety #doctormom #mentalhealth #psychologistsofinstagram #postpartumcoping #ottawa613 #imnotyourshrink #bewhereyouare #presentmoment #mindfulness #pressure #instagramvsreality #motherhoodthroughinstagram #reallife #igmotherhood #getunstuck #postpartumexercise #postpartumwellness #momof2 #shame

(Swipe for the sequence). The Nightmare Protocol is a way of managing recurrent nightmares which is proposed by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). It involves re-scripting and rehearsing the changed nightmare during waking hours until you are able to change or overcome the nightmare in sleep. It is best to start with an "easier" nightmare rather than an intense trauma memory if possible so you have experience of it before tackling the "big guys". I've used re-scripting myself for nightmares and it has worked for me, so it's worth a try. #nightmareprotocol #nightmare #nightterrors #dbt #dialecticalbehaviortherapy #personalitydisorder #bpd #eupd #depression #anxiety #ptsd #trauma #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarness #psychology #psychologist #psychologistsofinstagram #bearinmind

ACTS OF KINDNESS Our sherpa Vishnu and a co-trekker fooling around on the suspension bridge at Kukare Dobhan on the Annapurna trek at dusk.  They were mucking around and swinging the bridge ALOT.  I knew that it was sturdy, as I'd seen donkeys, yaks and horses cross before us.  Still, I scurried to cross quickly, as it was full of holes and gaps where I could see the river below. Not these two.. I really loved the way the Sherpa's had a ready laugh and were so playful.  Their jobs are quite hard, but they were always cheerful and very kind.  My favourite moment was when they filled a huge laundry bucket with hot water & popped it in my tent as a surprise, so that I could have a bath.  A bit of a squish, but it was definitely one of the best baths I had ever had after days of just using "washing water". They said that they knew how much ladies liked baths and they hoped that I would enjoy it. Small acts of kindness resonate in our daily lives too.  Kindness means a behavioural response of compassion and actions that are selfless; or a mindset that places compassion for others before one’s own interests.  In fact, kindness is linked inextricably to happiness and contentment—at both the psychological and spiritual level.  Kindness promotes empathy and compassion; which in turn, leads to a sense of interconnectedness with others.
