Tense Time Over The Turkey & Tinsel?
Posted by: Sue Atkins
I’ve been working with a lovely family who always row over the Christmas period as they find being cooped up over a long festive period brings out the worst in them despite all their very best intentions around the festive season !
I showed them how use my 5 Step Self Esteem Solution to help each member of the family feel heard helps them feel understood and tensions reduce.
I always say that “Communication is the oil that lubricates a happy family” so creating a very simple 5 Step Solution sitting round my Tudor Barn kitchen table transformed this lovely family as everyone spoke about what was important to them at Christmas and what support they need, as well as talking about what works/doesn’t work from each person’s perspective.
This all leads to a much happier festive period – and I showed them some of my simple strategies and techniques to make sure when things are starting to go a bit tense they know what to do.
One simple idea is to use my Pause Button Technique which made everyone laugh and relax – which I will also show you.
