We are firstly extremely grateful to Bex for sharing her journey with us! 

In this snippet, Bex talks to us about being an observer using the chain analysis method! Bex explains that throughout her therapy journey, this has been a tool she has been able to consistently implement to help her on her journey! 

Bex would use chain analysis to help her understand her personal patterns and triggers that would lead her to self harm. Asking herself why she would do something like that, meant Bex had to really reflect on the actions she was doing which brought her awareness back.

Bex talks about this as a powerful tool to use for everyone and their reflections whether it be about actions, thoughts or even behaviours in order to help understand yourself deeper!
