Zoe and Emma’s Self-soothing Skills module at Recovery College.

Do you feel as though life is a game, and the rules have been given to everyone except you?

Do you become emotionally overwhelmed by situations that other adults seem to take in their stride?

Now is your chance to discover strategies to soothe yourself when you are experiencing moments of extreme anger/ fear/ shame/ despair.
This eight-week course is brought to you by experts in personality disorders – one qualified DBT therapist and one service user in the final stages of recovery.
The first 2 sessions look at what it means to be ‘mindful’ (i.e. not avoiding the present, no matter how uncomfortable it is). The following 6 sessions will explore self-soothing skills. There will be an optional 9th session for celebration/ clients’ feedback to the facilitators. (This course is a pilot project, and may be extended if successful.)
