At the therapeutic core of For Baby’s Sake is our Inner Child module. We use this to connect with the often wounded element within the parents we support: their child within – fragmented, alone and confused. This is where we can begin to discover the root of their fears, insecurities and sabotaging life patterns – where the true healing actually happens.
For Baby’s Sake Practitioners are working hard every day to ensure ongoing delivery of this essential module, despite lockdown. Here, in their own words, is just one example:
‘I am successfully working remotely with a mum on the inner child module via the phone – and she is responding well. To give herself space without partner and children around, she either goes for a walk whilst on the phone to me or sits in her car. Last week, she sat in the car and closed her eyes so that she could immerse herself into the visualisation exercise ‘going back home’ to set the foundations for the rest of the session. We were able to complete essential elements of the module and, somehow, completing this via telephone seemed to work well as she reported not feeling awkward by not being watched. The session enabled her to speak up for her 11 year old self, which she said felt ‘like a weight had been lifted’. She said It also helped her to verbalise how she will parent differently to break the cycle of low self-esteem for her own children.
