Grounding is ongoing, focusing on it at the beginning of our work together.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I will prioritise your safety, how to recognise it and create it for yourself as part of our work together before exploring what else is there. I will do this by listening to and believing you, and how you make sense of your distress beyond any diagnosis you may have. We will also look at your resources and strengths to create strategies to support you during our work together. This will feel like turning down the volume of overwhelm when looking at your experiences, making it safer for you to explore them further.
