Getting You Back
When our true self is suppressed – for whatever reason – diary-writing skills can assist in reintegrating our mind and body as one. Such a process supports the transitioning of self-harming thoughts and behaviors to self-loving thoughts and behaviors, and hence peace and contentment.
Write Your Way with a Mentor
A diary can help you keep on track during healing and also when re-engaging with mainstream life. As a reflective and exploratory tool, it can assist in discovering or re-discovering parts of yourself. For instance, it offers opportunity to connect with ideas and beliefs you may have had for years but haven’t fully realized or understood, and provides a medium to record experimentation of new ways of thinking. Techniques can be learnt to help you use the diary, in whatever creative form feels right for you, to establish self-trust through and beyond recovery.
Recorded in May 2016, June was invited to contribute to the ED MATTERS series, presented by Gürze-Salucore. Listen to June in conversation about her decades-long illness and the road to getting her ‘self’ back. The episode can be accessed here: http://www.edcatalogue.com/11-
