What are your triggers? 

Everyone has their own triggers for what makes them angry, sad, detached, lonely etc, but some common ones include situations in which we feel: threatened or attacked. frustrated or powerless.

Triggers are often verbal or nonverbal behaviours that bring up feelings of abandonment or rejection.

The difficulty with triggers that, once triggered, the emotional burden is such that the whole day or even days can be affected. It's hard to neutralise this, because it results from the reawakening of past trauma and pain. Only after years of healing #therapy, can this be negated.

New Deaf4Deaf Counsellor - With the continued growth of D4D we would like to welcome Shabir as the newest member of our team of counsellors. 

Transcript: Hello, I would like to introduce myself, I'm Shabir, sign name is...., myself am deaf, sign BSL, all my life since as a child. I can sign SSE if a deaf person that uses SSE comes to me, I can change and meet their needs and meet different levels whether it’s in BSL or SSE.
I would like to give you information about counselling.
I am experienced and worked with people in a mental health service specially with deaf people suffering anxiety or depression and experienced other issues developed from childhood. Work offered me to do a 3 year training course to become a counsellor. Was interested so I worked at same place and had deaf patients that came to me with various issues. 
I’m qualified to do counselling as well as CBT (Cognitive Behaviour therapy)
I use 2 approaches. I’m a member of BACP and registered as well as receive regular supervision. It’s regular because we discuss how to develop skills. This is so important so we work on how to proceed with clients and the processes, and if I have concerns about a client.

I work with clients from ages 16 onwards up to 85 years old, doesn’t matter what age.
My previous work history and experience is mainly working face to face or online but now more online work as maybe a deaf person can’t travel so we can do online counselling at home. We can use Skype or different deaf-way of video communication. 
Counselling works with anxiety and depression, maybe negative thinking through death, bullying, sexual abuse and different issues, either through family or through school or through college, through university or experiencing marriage problems, abuse, harassment, friends issues, counselling deals will many issues and it also lets the clients look inside and self-analyse, express and talk about whether it’s wrong or right, maybe confused, maybe it can clear their thinking, who am I and find out my values. 
Another benefit is I’m an Asian counsellor. Asians have ‘deaf’ issues but also the added ‘culture’ issues so with family and oppression this can cause confusion, I can talk about Asian culture but what about my deaf identity. It’s difficult to connect, or arranged marriage, or bad experience growing up, different language growing up, so didn’t ‘follow’ communication. 
You can see and meet me for counselling as I’m Asian and I’m strong on empathy. 
Thank you for watching.

Hearing Counsellor & Interpreter Survey, Why? - Question? if we as a community accept a hearing counsellor and interpreter, does that mean it's the best option for you? 

Does it prove to the NHS that this is the best option for you?

Does it also prove to the regions of the NHS who say NO, that we are happy with a hearing counsellor and interpreter?

We need to know the facts, we will fight the regions who say NO if it's proven it does not work for the majority of our community.

ABUSE 

https://www.deaf4deaf.com/report-a-crime/

Video on abuse (emotional, physical, sexual or financial) 
Shame is often linked in with abuse. Anyone that has experienced abuse will often carry shame of the experience. 
This is often misplaced and toxic. 
Shame can be worked through in therapy so that the victim doesn't carry it anymore. 
Don't suffer in silence. 
Therapy can help someone work through the understandable defences that have been built up.over time, to live freely and without shame. 
If you want to talk to someone in confidence, Deaf4Deaf can support you. We can signpost you to the right support.

#Deafawarenessweek 
#mentalhealthawarenessweek 

My message to hearing people:
Transcript below.

Double awareness week- consider the deaf person in the room, in the crowd, in the family, in the playground at school, in a meeting, in a conversation and look at them, face them. 

If you cover your face, over-talk one another, turn your face, turn the music up loud, turn the lights down, you are EXCLUDING the deaf person. 

The stress levels of the deaf person will increase- it may not be visible as they are often skilled at covering up their feelings of feeling excluded.They may smile more to reduce the emotional pain. They may turn to their phone, turn to eat quietly and quickly, they may get up and excuse themselves, they may drink more, all with a skilled smile. They may start up new conversations (unrelated topics to last topic they’ve missed out) interject, as they are wanting to stay in the group. 

Be considerate. 
Be inclusive. 
Be mindful. 
Be patient. 
Be a friend. 

Simple really.
