From the moment we are born, none of us have fears or phobias, we don’t have any beliefs about how the world works, they are shaped by our reality – the world in which we are brought up in by our parents/carers. As we grow, our unique life experiences and the emotions we attach to certain situations or behaviours begin to define us.
“We need to recognise that whatever emotion is in control at any given time, will steer and direct how we view the world and how we react to it.”
A regular guest on the SENDcast, Alison Knowles, brings her expertise as an Emotional Therapist to discuss ‘Being Hijacked by your Emotions’ today. Alison tells us how emotions can block our ability to reason, think positively and our life direction is dictated by which emotion has the steering wheel.
Emotions are part of us all, and by listening to this episode, you will gain valuable insights into how to harness and navigate the power of your emotions. By learning to manage our emotions rather than allowing them to control us, we gain the ability to chart our own course and regain control over our lives.
