Resources for recovery.
We are continually in awe of the resilience and determination that our clients and community have for recovery.
We are also mindful of the importance of looking after oneself in the time of Covid-19. According to Pinterest, in April this year there was a 332% increase in searches for “self-care at home”.
Here, we are creating and sharing resources – for free – that we hope will support your individual journeys at home. Please share them with those who need it.

Healing Body Image
When we think about our bodies, the way we feel towards them is often a reflection of the amount of love, worth and respect we feel towards ourselves in general.
With the advent of social media and tabloid journalism, the way we seek validation for ourselves from other people has been dramatically reduced to what’s on the outside.
In this workbook, we encourage readers to shift their focus and perspective, expanding it away from a dialogue around weight, shape and size, and instead to include personal interests, hobbies and relationships.
Compassionate Thinking Worksheet
Admitting we need more compassion and kindness is an act of strength, and a demonstration of the trust we have towards ourselves that we can hold this difficult feeling but respond accordingly to it.
Kindness doesn’t always have to involve big actions or gestures (“doing” things), it may just be taking a few moments to check in and notice what’s happening for ourselves.
Take a few moments today to check in with this 4 step activity, and find that internal place that needs a little more selfcompassion right now.
