    In Loving Memory of  Astrid von Lojewski-Wilson 16/11/76 - 11/12/19, a beautiful human being, greatly missed every day.

    In todays podcast, Gemma talks about the profound impact of losing a close friend through death.  She describes her own experience of grief after the death of her close friend from cancer. 

    Gemma then discusses 5 ways that can help as you navigate your way through the grieving process.

    1. Honour your feelings & the reality of your own grief. The death of a friend can sometimes be a form of disenfranchised grief (not acknowledged by others).
    2.Keep up the connection with your friend somehow - keep a continuing bond with your friend via rituals or other ways to celebrate and remember their life (eg, photos, talk to them, write them a letter).
    3. Consider their LEGACY. What have they left behind in terms of impact and gifts to your life.  How did you learn from them? How can you internalise their wisdom into your own life?
    4. Grieve in YOUR OWN way. There are many myths and unrealistic expectations out there about grief and the grieving process - they are not helpful.  There are no defined rules or time periods with grief. 
    5. Remember them with others. Grief can be an isolating experience. Talk about your lost friend with the mutual friends you have. Discuss different memories of them and what you most valued about them. 

    Also there is a recommendation for seeking out your own professional support if you feel you need some extra help with your grief.

    In schema therapy, 'Modes' are a key part of the model.  Schema Modes have been defined as  moment-to-moment emotional states and coping responses that we all experience.  But also, Modes can be understood as 'parts' of self.  So modes can be observable to others and/or also a way to conceptualise the idea of multi-selves (ie, that we all have parts of self).   

    Schema modes are activated by triggers (eg, life situations, memories, interactions with others, our own thoughts & feelings, random events)  that we are especially sensitive to (ie, they are salient for us/meaningful to us in some way).  

    Many schema modes lead us to over or under react to situations and, thus, to act in ways that end up hurting us or others and also reinforcing and perpetuating our schemas.

    Today, Gemma and Justine discuss some of the modes that are especially relevant to Narcissism. 

    These modes are: (1) angry child mode - a core child mode (2) Bully & Attack mode - a coping mode (3) Martyr Mode - a coping mode and (4) Self-Aggrandiser mode - a coping mode.  While there are other modes which might be relevant, we discuss these four as particularly important in understanding the behaviours and motivations of the person who is exhibiting narcissistic traits.

    In this episode Gemma and Justine discuss 6 strategies for dealing with difficult family relatives over the Christmas and holiday period.  Getting together with family for many, can be a stressful and challenging time.  

    There are usually lots of unspoken expectations and sometimes old resentments and old hurts which get activated during this time.

    Firstly you need to decide on whether you will be attending gatherings with that difficult person or people and then you need to have a plan, including an exit strategy if things don't go well!

    Discussion points are:
    1. You don't have to respond to critical comments
    2. Stay mindful and refrain from getting defensive and making things worse
    3. Have a few stock-standard neutral replies or comments pre-prepared
    4. Be complimentary to soften the tone and get the difficult person to help out with something if relevant
    5. See the person for who they are and know they have their own schemas and modes which shape their difficult behaviours
    6. Have a planned exit strategy you can use if necessary.

    In today's episode Justine & Gemma discuss 4 things you can start working on if you think that you might have narcissistic traits or modes.

    Typically, if someone tells us they think they are narcissistic, they often are not at all.  Most clients who are narcissistic don't present for therapy unless their world is significantly compromised in some way (eg, their spouse splits up with them, they lose their job, they lose friends and people don't want to being around them anymore).  Some of our listeners have asks us to do an episode on how narcissists can change.

    We have identified 4 key issues/interpersonal problems that the narcissist typically struggles with and we discuss each one describing how you can start to make small changes and improvements in these areas.

    The key to all of this is of course, greater self-awareness and learning to tolerate uncomfortable emotions instead of using unhelpful coping behaviours (eg, over-compensation) to suppress or reject those emotions.  

    The 4 issues discussed are
    Learning to tolerate another person's subjectivity.  Learning to do repairs Owning your contribution to the problem Learning to tolerate shame and guilt without the need to blame others

    Dr Gemma Gladstone discusses mindfulness to emotions in this extended podcast lesson.  Gemma describes what emotions are and the difference between the 5 basic emotions (anger, fear, sadness, disgust and joy) and more complex emotions such as shame. 

    She discusses why it is so important to acknowledge and experience emotions rather than supressing, blocking and criticising them.  She recaps why the parenting practice of Emotion Coaching is so useful for young and developing children and how these practice lead to better skills of emotion regulation in children as they develop. 

    Gemma also breaks down the several components of an emotion (eg, physical sensations, mood and action 'urges') and differentiates these from the behavioural reactions and coping responses that follow the emotion.

    She then breaks down the steps you can take to slow things down, create a mindful pause and experience your emotions more intentionally.  By doing so, you are more able to understand your inner emotional experiences and choose to respond differently if you need to.

    In this episode we discuss a question from a listener in our mailbox series.  We love getting your emails and questions!

    The Mailbox: My Partner Had An Affair, What Now?
    When you find out your partner (who you thought was wonderful) has been unfaithful, this is pretty devastating news to say the least.  It's confusing and shocking news, especially if it was completely 100% unexpected.  
    In this episode we address a listener's question and try to unpick all the components of the question and provide some food for thought and ideas around what factors need to be considered.  
    Does an episode of infidelity have to mean the end?  Can a couple survive an affair and perhaps have an even better relationship? What has to happen for the couple to move on? How can trust be re-established in the relationship and is this even possible?
