S.T.O.P.P Overwhelm and Self-Doubt

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

This is a great CBT tool to use on yourself and introduce to your children to help them self-regulate their emotions.

When my twin sons were preparing for their A-Levels I have to say this tool helped defuse many situations that could have turned quite volatile.

This strategy also encourages you to respond rather than react in stressful situations.

S – Stop – Stop what you are about to do or say to others

T – Take a breath – Take a breath and count to 5. Focus on your breathing to calm your mind

O – Observe – Observe your feelings, thoughts and body sensations. Where is the tension building up?

P – Perspective – What’s the big picture here? Is there another way of looking at this?

P – Proceed – What is the best way to proceed – for you, others and the situation? What do you need to put in place?
