Meet Angus and Malcolm (yes, they're named after AC/DC's guitarists).
Like some of my clients, they have had their share of feeling unwanted, abandoned and suffered social anxiety.
Angus used to have some body image issues, too. He has a bald patch behind his neck. Imagine what he went through. He felt so bad that he didn't even self-groom anymore, something innate to all rabbits. But after months of tenderness and patience, Angus has finally learnt to love himself and others around him. He grooms himself, loves to be patted and be around people. Having him in your therapy sessions will help you to ground yourself, to be present, and most importantly, to allow yourself to feel.
Malcolm is a fighter and a survivor. He knows what he wants and when he needs to draw a line, he will hold his ground and draw it. He too, likes being patted on his head and he is a curious one, so don't be surprised if he comes around and takes a sniff at you!
Here are some things Angus and Malcolm can help you with:
- learning about survival-based instincts in all living things
- accepting the fight/flight/freeze mechanisms in all of us
- building patience to build connection with people around us (helps with anger management, etc.)
- learning how to compartmentalise our thoughts and feelings and stay in the "now"
- treating yourself with tenderness and compassion
- overcoming animal-related phobia
- and etc.
