That might be a passing thought if you are visiting our website for the first time. Like people hummingbirds create incredibly rich and complex lives by following their curiosity and pollinating the world. There are more than 300 species recorded, which parallels the unique combination of personality traits and emotional states of people; this makes each individual special. Just as people experience strong drives to get their core emotional needs met, hummingbirds follow their core needs, seeking out the sweet things in life and consuming approximately half their weight in pure sugar each day. Just as people can change and grow, various types of hummingbirds have evolved and many flowers have developed specific characteristics in order to meet the needs of hummingbirds; in this way we grow together.
Welcome to Secure Nest, we hope to provide an enriching e-health tool for both therapists and clients who are using schema therapy. Secure Nest is specifically designed as an adjunct to schema therapy, rather than a stand alone treatment. This ensures that the integrity of the schema therapy model is retained and therapists can use this tool flexibly, in order to meet the needs of the client and respond to the emotional state which is triggered in the moment. Increasingly therapists are providing services to clients who are ‘natives’ of the digital era. Electronic individualised plans support clients to connect to the therapist and the therapy process between sessions, providing stepping stones between the islands which are the sessions. Most features include examples or prompts, providing guidance for both therapists and clients.
We provide access to a range of features and have plans of different lengths, including a free trial period so you can ensure that Secure Nest meets your needs before subscribing (therapist signup, client signup). Secure Nest has been developed in collaboration with leading international schema therapists to ensure the tool can be adapted for therapists and clients around the world. We have launched in English, have a Dutch version of the site in progress (which will be available in the near future) and we can add more languages to meet demand over time.
The Secure Nest Journal is a place where we will post any significant news and updates about the site as well as share ideas and therapeutic resources. We look forward to having the opportunity to provide a technology tool which will assist in enhancing your therapy process. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time with questions, if you would like to request a free online training session, to provide feedback or just to let us know you have been reading 🙂
