Hello beautiful parts therapists, health and well-being professionals. What a time we have had in Australia. First fires, then flood and now pestilence in the form of Corona Virus (Covid-19). And our poor world, thinking of you all wherever you are hoping you are safe.
Obviously we are taking this seriously, with precautions and safety as paramount.
It’s good to remember this is flu and while not pleasant to have, we usually recover and build immunity.
As you will know we have our annual Bali Clinical Resource Therapy training in 4 months.
At this stage, our Bali trip is yet to be decided. So please don’t book flights or accommodation as yet.
We will keep you in the loop as to what is happening. A final decision will be made within the next couple of months.
Resource Therapy Training Workshops will go ahead in July.
Our back up venue will be Randwick Sydney.
And if all else fails we will be offering it virtually – live streaming the workshops. Where we come to you in the comfort of your office or home.
I just spoke to a friend of mine who’s daughter has sadly had to come home from her work experience gig with Disney USA.
As we see Disney, Qantas, Virgin and other big businesses have shut down services until June. This is a good sign. Things are expected to change for the better by then. So we are quietly optimistic. And you can bet there will be plenty of discounted airfares.
As anxiety is encouraged through endless media coverage, loneliness increases with social isolation and touching to a minimum, good therapy is needed now more than ever.
And spare a thought for those with OCD.
Parts therapy offers you powerful ways to work with general anxiety, panic, health anxiety, existential angst, fear of the unknown, uncertainty and unhelpful behaviors like over shopping and panic toilet roll buying.
Therapists need skills and tools for results for relief of anxiety, overwhelm and destructive behaviors.
It’s a great time to have your professional development needs for the year secured. Our latest training dates can be found here https://resourcetherapy.com.au/resource-therapy-foundation-training-online-philipa-thornton-sydney/
Resource Therapy Options for counseling
We are offering Marriage Works couples and individuals either online therapy sessions or telephone counseling. We are limiting our physical contact – sadly our dancing has been canceled. And using all the recommended steps to prevent infection.
Yesterday I spoke with a long term client on the phone. Let’s call him John. John identified a part called Concerned. Concerned had useful, he looked after John’s physical well-being.
Concerned had been at the helm and blocking John’s other parts that keep him going.
Using the amazing Retro State Negotiation Protocol we made use of Concern.
Previously I had worked with John’s adult parts involved with his profession, getting rest and confidence. So Worker, Relaxer and Strong were given permission to help John make a living and deal with future planning while boosting the immune system with rest.
I then sought Concern’s help in getting John to the Dr and Pharmacy to deal with his sinus like symptoms. Concerned was more than happy to assist. Strong, Worker and Relaxer were super appreciative of Concern’s actions.
I could feel Concerned’s grin down the phone line.
Concerned was now free to do his important work, helping maintain health, rather than protecting. While other parts were able to do make a living and look forward to the future.
John said he felt relieved and more at ease at the end of our phone session.
The benefits of working with parts can be online or on the phone.
Vaded work is possible and necessary with Retro Avoiding Parts.
Now more than ever we need more tools in our therapy kit to assist our wonderful clients and ourselves through these uncertain times.
Stay well dear friends, love to you all.
