Schema-therapy and Re-scripting
Had my first Schema-therapy and re-scripting session with my psychologist this morning. It was very emotional going back to my 5 year old self (i think i was 5). The psychologist asked how i was feeling, and asked me to speak in the present tense not past tense. Feelings of the incident came back full force, i was scared,anxious,nervous,sad,angry and i cried and dug my fingernails in to my fingertips. She kept asking me what i needed as a 5 year old eg; a hug, hold my hand, pick me up…i kept saying i don’t know. She also spoke to the people making me feel this way. It made me feel a bit better. We then went and fed the ducks (in my mind).
Have you done this?
I found it a little weird at first but then i just let go and accepted the mindful therapy.
I haven’t, but I think it sounds fascinating. Heaven knows that reading the link you have about Schema Therapy made the room spin… I think you just brought me something I’ve been looking for. Thank you!
That’s great. I’m glad I could share something helpful.
