I am a qualified and registered mental health counselor/psychotherapist and Mental Heath Social Worker. I work holistically to manage mental, emotional and spiritual distress and crisis.
The exciting field of neuroscience provides the scientific evidence that we cannot isolate the brain, body and spirit - that we cannot isolate our internal world from the external environment. Neuroscience has proved the plasticity (ability to change) of the brain. You can build new neural-pathways and highways and choose the thoughts and feelings you want – choose your emotional masterpiece and mindset.
Babette Rothchild, as do all therapists, who use brain’s plasicity (the brains ability to change) understand that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual ‘shock’ is felt by the body as a trauma. The body and brain react with the Fight and Flight response. Babette says, “Trauma cannot begin to be processed much less ‘controlled’ in the absence of the ability to tolerate affect [emotional reactions]”
All the activities and information in Soothe Your Spirit are evidence-based and designed for you to learn to regulate your emotions. They are safe for you to complete on your own. Thousands of hours of my own therapeutic work backed by trauma therapist expert published research prove that the emotional regulating tools work.
My clients have told me that these skills and life-strategies have changed their lives and supported them find the happiness and peace they were missing. I have gathered my client’s favourite therapy activities into the Soothe Your Spirit.
Here's what one of my beautiful clients have said about the course "Soothe Your Spirit provided me with the toolkit kit and a lamp to light the way. A simple yet profound understanding of the brain coupled with specifically tailored art activities unlocked the deep, dark mystery of my experience of mental "illness". Jacqueline's work has most certainly transformed my breakdown into breakthrough after breakthrough" Erin
Soothe Your Spirit has focused activities of education, life-strategies and distress regulation/reduction skills with bonus videos.
You can move through the activities at your own pace and need. However you will get more from the investment in yourself if you follow the activities step by step and complete all the activities.
You may already have some of the skills to develop the daily practices or they may be very new to you. You can always come back to the activities and repeat them as many times as you like. The activities are always there for you if you get off track or experience unexpected distress in your life.
The course gives you a toolbox of skills and life-strategies to reduce and relieve your emotional distress and free your spirit from being stuck in cycles of pain and fear.
