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?
Negative emotions surface when you are undergoing such ordeals.
For specific self-help skills with overcoming such states please go to Feeling is Healing.

Happy Healing!
