Understanding the Four Common Trauma Responses & How To Regulate Your Nervous System
Show Notes

This episode is a juicy one! We're talking about the four major categories of trauma response and their associated behaviours - the Fight, Flight, Freeze + Fawn responses. These show up in different ways for different people, so you may learn more about yourself as you listen!

I also share a few of my favourite go-to ways to help regulate the nervous system, and how you can practice them at home. In today's world we could all do with some nervous system assistance! Try out some or all of these practices next time you feel triggered or dysregulated, or just practice them daily to help keep you sane!

This episode was inspired by the work of Dr Nicole LePera, aka @the.holistic.psychologist on Instagram and Youtube. The work she has done and that she shares for free is truly so enlightening - definintely check her out if you're unfamiliar!
