I was going through a particularly stressful time. I wasn't sleeping well, and often felt impatient with my kids, and not available enough for them. I had a consultation with a Hand in Hand consultant: in it, she helped me connect back to a memory of time when I felt very afraid as a child. Later that evening, I had a huge cry and rage in the car on the way to the gym. I felt cleaned out after that, and I was more available for my daughter the next morning than I had been in a long time. My daughter was having a hard time that day, but I felt calm and peaceful, able to listen and help her, and she was able to feel better, too.
