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.
