Following on from my post earlier this week about supporting those who are experiencing thoughts of suicide, I'd like to share this wonderful app developed by a fellow Human Givens trained therapist who has lived experience of feeling suicidal. The app recognises that when we feel suicidal we are in a highly emotional state which makes it harder for us to connect with the rational and logical area of our brain. In an easy to follow and calm way, the app walks you through a process of breathing to begin to lower the emotional distress, helping you reconnect with other parts of your brain and then guides you through activities that help to reinforce calm and generate a different perspective. As someone with lived experience of suicide, I wish this had been available to help me on the journey back to where I am now! It's by no means the whole solution and I would still strongly encourage seeking help from mental health professionals to ensure that you have all the support you need, but I would highly recommend this as an excellent tool to help the process of continuing to put one foot in front of the other while you find a way to live again!

Following the sad death by suicide of Caroline Flack this weekend, there's been lots of posts on social media about looking out for our friends and loved ones and making sure that we check that they are ok. I'd like to offer an alternative viewpoint. Firstly, let's agree that we could look out for our friends and loved ones any time, regardless of whether they are experiencing emotional distress. And now let's understand that suicidal thoughts are rarely resolved through the actions of caring friends and family alone. When someone reaches the point of suicide it is because their emotional distress has become intolerable to them - death is a permanent solution to a mental health illness that appears to have no end. It is not a choice that a person makes and many people who end their life are surrounded by people they love. What they need is an appropriate balance of love and support and professional mental health care. So, if someone you care about is struggling with mental illness absolutely BE KIND. And also help them to seek appropriate professional support as quickly as possible - you wouldn't try and heal someone with cancer just with kindness ... mental illness is no different! #SuicideAwareness #samaritans #ianschain #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #papyrus #positivechangeforever ...

Sometimes fixing what's broken means changing how we perceive it. Take the broken mug on the left - we could hope we have all the pieces and try to glue it back together again. Assuming that we have all the pieces, if we are lucky we might be able to create a whole cup, but the chances are that it will always be weaker where it's been repaired and more vulnerable to further damage. If we don't have all the pieces, in all likelihood we probably won't be able to use the cup again and will end up throwing it away. So what can we do? Would you have considered creating the cup in the right? Sometimes we have to be willing to put away the glue, let go of our beliefs around what things should look like and challenge ourselves to see a new purpose or perspective. Sometimes repair isn't about trying to put things back the way they were - sometimes repair is about putting the past behind us and finding a new shape to things. It's not always easy to see how things could be different and sometimes we might need some help to get a different perspective but change is always possible, no matter how big or small! So if you're feeling a bit like the mug on the left and haven't yet worked out what to do about it, perhaps a few sessions with a therapist might help you apply some creativity, explore your options and gain a different perspective. Why not drop me a message and we can explore working together either face to face or online - it might be that the change you need is only a step away! #positivechangeforever #talkingtherapy #onlinetherapy #transformnotfix ...
