What are parent & carer coaching sessions?
Coaching sessions for parents and carers, are aimed at adults that are emotionally triggered by the needs of their child. They are run by Tracy, a very experienced holistic coach, who works on a bottom-up approach of releasing unprocessed emotions, that are held in the body. She will not only support you on this journey – she has lived this journey.
Tracy applies a body-to-mind approach to help the client let go of unprocessed negative emotions and regulate their internal nervous system. She will use a combination of approaches, including; Wingwave Coaching (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), Bilateral Integration Techniques, Mindfulness, Meditation, Coaching, and Neutral Space Relaxation (Bodywork Relaxation). Using these to help the client process past experiences, so that they are no longer triggered by them now. It is a process of awareness, understanding, and resolve.
What is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing?
The lateral eye movements, used in the session reduces activation of the amygdala (emotional part of the brain) and related circuitries – which reduces the amplitude of the anxiety and stress. This helps the client to feel calmer and restores balance in their internal system. This works really well with bilateral integration techniques – which are shown in the session and can be applied independently, as and when needed.
What is Emotional Freedom Technique?
Tapping is similar to acupuncture, but without the needles! We lightly tap on certain points on the face and upper body, to relieve tension and stress. This technique is really effective, as the child can apply it anytime they need to.
What is the Bounce Approach?
It is really important, that throughout the process – all clients are aware of the science behind the techniques. All approaches used are scientifically proven to be effective and clients need to understand why. This is why we explore the Bounce Approach – which is in effect Tracy’s adaptation of the Polyvagal Theory, a neuroscientific and psychological link between the vagus nerve and emotional regulation (Stephen Porges).
Body-based Relaxation Techniques
For clients that don’t want to talk about their emotions, body-based relaxation techniques such as Neutral Space Relaxation, mindfulness, breathing techniques and meditations are extremely effective. These approaches would be incorporated into the sessions, alongside links to private videos – so that clients can use them time and time again.
Who would benefit from this style of support?
- Parents and carers who are emotionally triggered by their child
- Professionals who are emotionally triggered by children in their care
