Intrusive Thoughts, Voices & self talk. How we deal with it - 5/2
On Monday 5th of February our chat will be about intrusive thoughts and self talk.
Sometimes thoughts, often very negative, seem to take over our mind, out of nowhere.
We may even hear voices telling us to do things or talking us down.
And the ever present spectre of our self talk.
How do we manage these things? What can we do to make them a little less intrusive? How do we take back control of our thoughts?
Extreme Emotions, Emotional Storms - 12/2
On Monday 12th of February our chat will be about Extreme Emotions and Emotional Storms.
Sometimes, and often out of nowhere the emotions we have suppressed and hidden for many years just force their way to the surface and take over.
This can leave us almost totally unable to pull our selves back from the emotions taking over our mind.
Where do these emotions come from? How can we manage them when they arise?
