STORIES & REVIEWS
"How does an adorable card game manage to be so confronting and affirming at the same time? As someone who's navigating a rewarding but demanding career and still relatively new at married life, I found Thought Bubbles to be a wonderful tool, helping me to take an aerial view of how I (and others) see myself – but also a close look at what these perceptions mean and how they can shift and change over time. It's easy to play but throws up deep questions along the way. I can't wait to share this with more of my friends and family."
Corrie Tan, Writer and Researcher
"I got these cards because I think they would be a really fun and tangible way to talk about helpful and unhelpful thoughts with the kids. I already have a few clients in mind whom I can use them with!"
Alyssa Tanzer, Clinical Psychologist
As psychologists, we recognize that thoughts are closely tied to the way we feel, act and respond to the situations that occur in our lives.
There are many types of helpful and unhelpful thoughts but in our line of work, we have found that the Worrier, Victim, Controller and Judge thoughts are especially salient in conditions of stress, anxiety, depression and anger, and often lead to poor self-confidence and low self-esteem.
When helping people cope with difficult situations and the thoughts and feelings that come with them, psychologists use a range of interventions and approaches.
Some of these interventions include stepping away from the situation, noticing thoughts and feelings with an open mind, considering different ways to see and approach the problem, acceptance and letting go, being kind to self and others, and viewing experiences as opportunities for learning and growth. These ideas and techniques are embodied in the Observer, Problem Solver and Healer thought profiles.
The Controller wants things to be a certain way and experiences distress when people or situations do not meet expectations.
The Worrier is filled with concerns about the possibility that things would go wrong, people would judge or criticise and/or the situation would be too difficult to cope with.
The Judge is the critical voice that is harsh on self and others.
The Victim often considers the situation hopeless and feels powerless to change things.
The Problem Solver realizes there is more than one way to solve a problem and is open to other perspectives and different ways of solving problems.
The Observer takes a step back from the situation and notices thoughts, feelings and experiences with openness and curiosity.
The Healer is accepting, kind to self and others, and sees opportunities to grow and learn in all situations.
