Self Mapping

Self Mapping tools and concepts are being integrated by mental health professionals across the world working in all mainstream approaches with thousands of clients.

Using these jargon free tools and concepts develops a whole brain and body way of noticing symptoms earlier and more reliably.

This heightened level of 

self-awareness helps to reduce symptom intensity and supports recovery and improved psychological strength.

The flexibility of Self Mapping tools and concepts enables professionals to integrate them, free of charge, in the way that best fits their approach and the work being done with each individual client.

Watch mental health professionals share their experience of working with  Self Mapping tools and concepts. 


Professionals typically find that the best way to decide whether to integrate Self Mapping tools and concepts is to experience the first step of the self-help approach themselves: 

Step 1: Self Awareness

Develop a new type of self awareness so that you can notice your brain and body  in therapeutically useful ways.
