Our key approaches
Compassion is an essential aspect of wellbeing. The overarching goal is to cultivate compassion for self and others and reduce shame and self criticism. It brings together neuroscience and psychology to help us understand what drives us to behave, feel or think in these particular ways and help us learn new strategies that generate contentment and safety.
When we are practising mindfulness we are engaged fully in what we are doing rather than ‘getting lost’ in thoughts. We are allowing feelings and thoughts to be as they are, letting them come and go rather than trying to push them away or make them stay. Mindfulness simply means being in the present moment with awareness, openness, and acceptance. Mindfulness contributes to an acceptance of self without judgement.
Being trauma informed is understanding trauma and its effects on development, health, wellbeing, relationships and the world around us.
Trauma Informed Practice brings together neurobiology, an understanding of attachment, and our early developmental experiences to foster physical, emotional and psychological safety. It is a strengths based framework recognising that we responded the best way we could.
Healing from trauma occurs in a relational context. The goal is to work with the mind and body to develop a sense of safety in the world around us, build trust, develop skills and create opportunities for empowerment.
