Exploring ‘survival’ and ‘self’ energies…

In August I attended an experiential online workshop facilitated by Ruth Culver, a counsellor and art therapist living in the UK. Ruth led us though a creative activity exploring our parts in times of regulation and dis-regulation. It demonstrated clearly the relationship between Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Polyvagal Theory.

A recent client of mine gave me permission to share her work (see above images). Using pastels, she was able to experience the calming and resilient effect of calling on ‘self’, to soothe a past hurtful experience.

Below is Ruth’s infographic showing the relationship of IFS and Polyvagal theory. Attend a workshop if you can! Find out more here: https://calmheart.co.uk/
