Flow Clinical Psychology has been really busy, continuing to work with our clients, complete further training, and develop our services. We also made time to get together in person and celebrate a successful and productive year of working in collaboration!
A few important updates to share.
- We have finally joined Instagram!! Please follow us @FLOWCLINICALPSYCH to hear about our services http://www.instagram.com/flowclinicalpsych/
- I have added more meditations and breath practices to Insight Timer. Please follow ‘Dr Joanne Ablett Flow Clinical Psychology’ on Insight Timer and I’d love to read your feedback if you fancy leaving a review for me.
The latest of these is focused on accessing the ‘rest and digest’ parasympathetic nervous system state via vagal nerve activation, with a focus around the eyes and scalp, utilising the link between relaxing the ocular muscles and the move out of ‘Fight/flight’ sympathetic activation, which is accompanied by a reduction in heart rate along with other physiological changes. If you have a smart watch, check it out when you next meditate or practice breath work such as diaphragmatic breathing. I recorded this meditation because I’d received a lot of positive feedback from clients in session when I guided this, and requests for repeating this particular one. Now, you can repeat it whenever you like.
3. Our very own Dr Charlotte Russell has been busy with her other projects as The Travel Psychologist. I would highly recommend checking out her and her collaborators articles for everything related to travel and psychology. Some really interesting and thought-provoking reads.

4. If you would like to learn more about the relationship between the body and trauma, anxiety or depression, including polyvagal theory, accessing the vagus nerve and how we hold tension patterns, particularly in the psoas muscle, look out for the forthcoming combined psychology and yoga workshops soon to be offered. I will keep you posted!
