Emotional Freedom Techniques

Pathological Demand Avoidance

Freedom for Parents of PDAers

It feels, doesn’t it, that in fact the very freedom I’m speaking to you of here is either at odds with your child’s need for autonomy and freedom OR your freedom is squashed and stifled in order for you to lovingly meet their needs as I know you so wish to. #PDA #PathologicalDemandAvoidance #Autism #Autistic

Peace With PDA

The Peace Within

Together we are being aware and choosing our place in this world deliberately where we are celebrating ourselves for the sensitive beings we are. The light bringers, the change makers, the soothers, the advocates, the open hearted and loving! Lining ourselves up with all we truly are. As we embrace the contrast that shows up in our lives and celebrate how that helps us see so clearly what we DO want for us and for our children, we are laying down an important path ahead.  No one else can do this for us. This is our call to step up for our children, and for ourselves which is where all change truly happens.  #PDA #PathologicalDemandAvoidance

Pathological Demand Avoidance

Where is the heart?

It’s plain to see as a parent we just need someone to listen to us and our children, to take some time, and to work with us to bring some relief. However we don’t fit the ‘system’ and on time goes with the same... ‘You must come to us’ ‘You must fit our schedule’ ‘Your child must do as we say’ ...approach, until everyone is too tired and in too much pain to know where to turn next.  As a society how has it come to such a lack of personal connection and compassion within the system we all call ‘care’?

10 Golden Opportutinties

Raising a child or young person with Pathological Demand Avoidance takes us on a B-I-G journey as a parent. Because it’s the less trodden path we can feel a bit lonely and afraid as we walk it, & that’s OK! Actually, it’s the most wonderful invitation to find where the strength and answers truly lie - Within us my friend.  The journey of any parent, undertaken consciously, will always highlight our shadows and invite us to grow.  “It’s no surprise we fail to tune into our children’s essence. How can we listen to them, when so many of us barely listen to ourselves? How can we feel their spirit and hear the beat of their heart if we can’t do this in our own life?” Shefali Tsabary, The Conscious Parent

Love PDA ‘Converstaions That Count!’

I pray for the day when PDA can be seen. When parents are not judged but supported and celebrated. Where we can say PDA and not have to explain what it is. Where humans can adapt to the needs of PDA people, that they just recognize, accept and know that we are all unique but we are also all from the same. For peace.

Let it go Let it go

That’s you struggling, and trying to know all the answers, and feeling sad, and feeling not good enough, and feeling afraid of the future, and feeling angry at the teacher, and feeling unappreciated... So YOU are holding that cork under the water. That’s what your negative emotions are telling you. That’s what resistance is. Let it go, and float into peace... Peace With PDA

Space…The Final Frontier

When we are focused in the past or the future and locked in time we are constricted. Emotional Freedom Techniques can support you in letting go as your awareness turns to thoughts, beliefs, and physical sensations that pull you away from resting fully in this moment.
