Dissociation is when someone feels disconnected from their thoughts, feelings, or surroundings. It's like the mind's way of protecting itself during tough times. This post looks at four ways dissociation can show up, making it easier to spot and understand.

Getting the Right Support Understanding these types of dissociation helps us realise why someone might be acting a certain way or feeling out of sorts. There are ways to help, like talking therapies, which can work through the root causes of dissociation. Mindfulness and relaxation techniques can also be really helpful in managing symptoms.

It's important to approach these experiences with kindness and an open mind. Everyone's journey is different, and with the right support, people can start to feel more connected to themselves and the world around them.
