Workshop 2: Physiological responses and relaxation

Delivered by Kathrin Hicks from the University Counselling Centre

The most straightforward way of interrupting the vicious cycle of negative thoughts and feelings associated with long term health conditions is to start with the physical processes involved in the fight/flight stress response, particularly breathing and muscle tension. If we can slow down our breathing and reduce muscle tension, this sends the message to the brain that we are safe, which has a calming influence on our thoughts and feelings.

Concepts to be covered include:

  • Brief description of the brain processes involved in the fight/flight response, and how these are affected by breathing and muscle tension
  • Description, demonstration and in-session practice of different techniques for slowing down breathing and reducing muscle tension
  • Troubleshooting how to practise these techniques
