About the Emotional Resource Guide:

Life after trauma is often charactised by triggers, flashbacks and oscillating states of emotional distress. These are natural consequences of the effects of trauma on the brain, but people suffering them can feel as if they are either ‘mad’ or deficient in some way. The simpler reality is that trauma is traumatising!
Now in its second edition with additional content, this essential Resource Guide brings together a number of articles and concepts which are designed to help people learn how to take back control over their traumatised emotional and bodily states. It’s a lifebelt for people who experience frequent debilitating, even life-threatening distress, and also a resource for professionals working with this client group. Articles include:
  • Coping with Crisis
  • Managing Triggers
  • Managing Flashbacks
  • The Trauma Traffic Light
  • The Window of Tolerance
  • In Case of ¬†Emergency cards – free templates
  • Alphabet of Emotions
  • Understanding the Mental Health Act
  • Three types of trigger … three techniques for taming
  • How to calm down
  • How I manage my mental health

About the Set of 12 Mantra Cards/Mantra Postcards:

Mantra cards and Mantra postcards carry the same images and mantras, but are different sizes. Mantra cards are business card size – convenient as a take-away reminder. Mantra postcards are A6 size – convenient for sharing during therapy sessions or displaying in a room.

Packs contain 24 images on 12 double-sided cards/postcards, in their own handy case and are designed to help trauma survivors ground themselves before, during or after a flashback or being triggered. They can also be used during psychotherapy or counselling sessions.

Examples include:

  • I’ve been triggered, but I’m safe. I’ve been reminded, but I’m safe. I’m on alert, but I’m safe.
  • It’s not happening now. It feels like it is in my brain, but that’s just my smoke detector having a false alarm.
  • That was then, this is now. I was hurt then, but I’m not going to be hurt now.
  • Everything feels hopeless now. Everything feels dark. But it will pass. I’ve felt hopeless and dark before, yet I survived. I’ll survive this time too.
