Research has shown that being tied to our phones for our emotional wellbeing paradoxically, brings the opposite! At this point you are invited to check in with yourself how happy you are with your ongoing relationship with your phone? We can establish a new relationship with our phones that is more healthy and balanced and that serves us rather than enslaving us with each ping.
What is the first thing you check in the morning, and last thing at night? (And regularly, nearly all day!).
What has been your fleeting feeling reaction on realising your phone might be lost?
Do you find yourself checking your phone repeatedly, as a habitual pattern?
Do you spend hours at a time on social media?
Is there often a sense of hollowness, emptiness or dissatisfaction with your activities related to your phone?
How would it feel to take back being in charge - breathing a sigh of relief and a sense of freedom and enjoy your life - without being hostage to your phone?
Phone addiction may lead to:
In this culture, no one is free of some type of addiction, very commonly it is also with the phone. It has crept up on us gradually, leading to a pernicious and subtle enslavement.

"Every part within us has it's own healing mechanism and knows it's own rightness," (Gene Gendlin) We just need to know how to hold and be available to these parts in a safe and supportive way, and, as if by magic, the fresh edge will flow into it's newness - it is the essential connection to build both inner and outer community and for radical personal change to happen.
'Since completing the sessions, I feel more connected to myself and the world around me in quite a magical way. I have started to find ways to be with my experience in more openness, to be more curious and accepting and to be more grounded. The sessions felt very spontaneous and alive creating a space of safety, openness with a light and playful touch, that we moved more deeply into together. Simon is deeply humane and highly skilled, I really recommend his 1:1 sessions.'
