Self-Care Space

Learning about or working with trauma can be very empowering,

but we know that it can also be very challenging.

 

We would like to make it as safe and comfortable as possible for you to engage with what we offer on our site, so this space is dedicated to your self-care.

You are welcome here whenever you wish.

Grounding & Soothing

 

Here is a collection of grounding and nurturing invitations. (More to come!)

 

Our suggestion is to do one at the beginning and one at the end of your time here to help you stay anchored in the present moment, but you are free to choose which of these invitations are right for you and when.

Soundscapes by Traumascapes

 

You may close your eyes (if comfortable) and immerse yourself in the music. You may focus on your breath or follow your imagination where it leads you, maybe even drawing intuitively in response to the music.

Peer Support

 

If you are a trauma survivor and you would like to connect with other survivors, you could join one of the peer support groups run by our partner, Survivors Voices.

We will soon be running our own peer support groups for survivors and for survivors' loved ones - you can register your interest by sending us a quick note through our Contact form.
