Stabilisation Skills cards and Grounding cushions
These resources were developed to support clients with emotional dysregulation. The cards are designed to help them to ground themselves, take control of unwelcome thoughts, increase mindfulness and feel they are back in control. They are best used in conjunction with a therapist who help to explain and teach these skills. Each product has more information in its description.
Willows offers counsellors training in Symptom Reduction and Stabilisaton Skills. Initially developed to help trauma clients, they have also proved useful for anxiety, stress responses, PTSD and depression. There are sets of cards for Panic Attacks, Anxiety and Intrusive Thoughts, Dissociation and Flashbacks. There is also a set for young people to similarly help them to regulate emotions.
