When we are very stressed, we can feel unable to focus and think straight, wrapped up in worries about what may or may not happen. This can lead you to feel overwhelmed, anxious or panicked, making difficult situations even harder to cope with. One way of regaining your mental focus from an intensely emotional state is through the use of grounding techniques. In this session, Dr Catherine will show you a simple technique you can use when feeling overwhelmed to calm yourself and refocus.
