Please join me on this webinar to find out a little bit more about self harm and how you can start to feel better about your life without the need to harm yourself.
On March 1st this year it will be International Self Injury/Harm Awareness Day and to honour that day I wanted to create a webinar and online course to help anyone who is suffering from anxiety and stress who is using self harm or self injury to help make themself feel better.
We all know self-harm to be when somebody intentionally damages or injures their body. It's usually a way of coping with or expressing overwhelming emotional distress. ... However, the intention is more often to punish themselves, express their distress or relieve unbearable tension. Sometimes the reason is a mixture of both. Does this sound like you?
Some people have described self-harm as a way to:
Express something that is hard to put into words Turn invisible thoughts or feelings into something visible Change emotional pain into physical pain Have a sense of being in control Escape traumatic memories Punish yourself for your feelings and experiences
And after self-harming you may feel a short-term sense of release, but the cause of your distress is unlikely to have gone away. Self-harm can also bring up very difficult emotions and could make you feel worse.
But please realize that self harm doesn't always have to be about cutting ourselves it can manifest in the form of drinking too much, gambling, eating too much or not eating enough, having that extra glass of wine and always saying yes to things that we do not physically or emotionally have the capacity to deal with.It can even be about how we show up and behave in our relationships.
Take a look at this short animation and then join me for the webinar.

Currently I help many people globally who are struggling with depression, eating disorders, self harming, grief, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, and behavioural concerns and those wanting to know more about the principles behind life as a mentor and trainer so that they too can share this incredible understanding.
