Phone therapy check in

last nights therapy phone check in was a huge success.
When Eileen picked up, a huge surge of emotion welled up inside of me. A mixture of happiness, joy, overwhelm, all at once. I was so delighted to hear her voice. It made me feel so safe.
we talked for 20 minutes. there was a lot of young parts feeling very triggered. so eileen spent time reassuring them. and grounding us back to the present.
we talked about monday and my experience of being on the interview panel. and she kept reminding me that I carol anne did that, that a child part did not do it, I told her I would not even entertain the idea. She said to remind myself that I am capable and can be adult when I need to be. To bring myself back and remind myself of that whenever I start to feel triggered.
I told her I was afraid to go too much into things because I felt like I might float away or get lost in the triggering, she kept telling me to put my feet on the floor and notice my body, notice how I felt in the moment.
It was a good session. I was glad to be able to have the check in. It really helped me and I got a good nights sleep last night after talking to her.

  1. Hi Carol Anne. I’m so glad you had a good check in with Eileen. A good night’s sleep is something to be cherished. I want you to know that when I read your blog, you-Carol Anne-sound like an adult woman who handles what she needs to handle in her life.
