Dear Resource Therapy friends and family, what a whirlwind of change this pandemic has brought to our lives. I do hope you are safe and sound.
With self-isolation and social distancing Resource states holding any rejection come to the surface.
I’ve felt it myself. Walking into the supermarket and moving away from people to meet health care recommendations feels odd. And when people step back a part of me goes ” Oh!?”.
A second later I realize it’s not me they avoiding, its COVID 19. I’d imagine many of us have a little reaction like this. It’s a weird situation.
For our clients with complex PTSD this is amplified triggering parts who have experienced bullying, abuse episodes of hurt and being shunned to be at the helm. These parts when on deck bring the unprocessed pain with them.
Many of my clients are doing really deep and profound work at this time. Online naturally.
It’s not unusual for me to offer my clients a fee-free session. I want them to feel safe and supported by me. It’s a wonderful feeling to the gratitude I get in return. Such a blessing.
As rejection provides us with access to parts stuck in past emotional pain and hurt.
Resource Therapists are trained to facilitate the Expression, Removal and Relief Steps as per the Vaded in Rejection Protocol.
This process usually takes only a few minutes, allowing clients to stay within their window of tolerance.

We are flooded with images and media on COVID19. I am all for keeping abreast. It’s just too easy to get overloaded and overwhelmed. I limit my exposure to the media virus.
I will usually check on the phone in the morning any articles with a quick scan. I generally don’t watch the news. I find journalists’ constant output makes me bored or I start to get anxious. Quick back to my book, talk to Chris or Netflix.
I am suggesting to my clients and friends they only post and listen to the advice of official channels such as WHO, https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019; the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/, and other Government websites for their information.

There is just too much fake news out there, Facebook is full of it. I suggest we all limit our media diet and remember to make the most of these curious times.
How have the changes affected you? What adjustments have you made and the impacts? Love to hear from you, please drop a comment in the box below.
Thanks for your time.
Please stay safe and remain healthy.
Lots of love Philipa xox
