Trigger Happy!

June 12, 2018

If you looked at me would you know that it doesn't take much (in certain situations) to feel extremely anxious?


Being a counsellor I'm supposed to have my stuff together, right?


Well I'd like to think I'm a good way there but that doesn't mean I don't have situations which trigger my anxieties. That doesn't mean I can't be a damn good counsellor. 


And this is because I have self awareness. When I'm triggered by something or someone I know exactly what's happening in my body and nervous system. Sometimes I can calm down quite quickly other times I need a chat with a loved one or my supervisor. 


I also have a handy set of tools! I call upon these in times of strife and it's one I add to all the time. 


I know exercise at my favourite gym helps, I know having a massage by a super tuned in therapist helps, heck even just having a sit down and a cup of tea helps. 


Everyone's tool box is different and I love helping people fill theirs with what feels right just for them. 


Understanding is also key. I know how my triggers have developed. I went through some tricky stuff as a child and that has left it's mark. I now know it doesn't have to define me and I accept myself, triggers 'n all :). 


Much love
