DIY Self Help
Do It Yourself Self Help is about placing your self-healing power back into your own hands.
The practical psychological self-help skills made available throughout this website are designed as a guide for those who would like to develop individualized self-healing strategies. This is because the methods are fluid and open to interpretation. The overall focus of these theories and techniques is to promote self-empowerment via self-healing.
The main philosophy underpinning all of these self-help skills is based on finding meaning in (or making sense of) your own experiences, challenges, emotions, relationships and so on. This is accomplished by asking yourself certain open-ended questions which will enable you to think about your situation in a more constructive, ‘enlightened’ or positive way. Examples of such questions are the following:
- What is the purpose of this experience?
- How can I learn from this?
- What is positive about this experience?
