A Top 5 ways that mindbody techniques can help carers. What would your's be?

10 - 16th June is UK carers week in 2024. Having worked as a carer for many years, assisting my elderly parents, I frequently experienced the different kinds of challenges carers face. As a mind-body specialist, I frequently used tools from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), hypnotherapy, and the Lightning Process to provide support. Reflecting on my experiences, I identified my top five areas where I found these toolkits most beneficial:

Stress Reduction and Relaxation: Relaxation techniques and guided imagery to achieve deep relaxation, to help reduce stress and overwhelm and increase energy.

Improving Sleep: Reducing sleep disturbance with relaxation methods and mind-quieting techniques to enhance sleep quality. The ability to get quickly back to sleep after being woken was very very useful.

Emotional Support: Processing emotions and coping with feelings such as frustration, sadness, grief or guilt, which helps prevent things like burnout. (I would include here clearing difficult experiences in hospitals or similar.)

Building Resilience and Coping Strategies: Learning coping strategies and building mental resilience.

Improving Relationships: Strategies to manage relationships with everyone, the person being cared for, family members etc to make things just that bit easier.

What would you include?
