There are various skills that people can practise at home. So there are various strategies that actually I would really want people to practice at home in order to benefit from any treatment or even to help them avoid having treatment. Strategies that will help them with their thinking patterns, strategies that help them resist the urge to engage in certain behaviours, and certainly strategies that will help them feel more relaxed and soothed.
