How to talk to your child/young person about their Cleft Oh hi, only another month has passed since I last uploaded.. whoops!
This episode follows on from my one in December 2021, so make sure you give that a listen too if you haven't done already!
We know there is only one wrong way to talk to your child about their cleft.. and that is by not doing it at all! The way you can talk to them about it? Lots of ways!
I have covered some ideas and things to consider on your journey as a parent and caregiver and I hope they help!

Should you talk to your child/young person about their Cleft? A couple of months ago I did a few polls on my Instagram and asked followers to answer questions around talking to your child/young person about their cleft. I asked parents and caregivers to answer certain questions and cleft affected individuals to answer others. The answers gave me some interesting insight from both sides and confirmed my thinking that there is only one wrong way to go about talking to your young person...
This is one episode of a few that I will be doing around talking to your child/young person about their cleft, leading on to bullying and how to support them if that occurs.
I hope you find this information useful and as ever would love any feedback!

Freebie: Self Worth Soundtrack for people who are Cleft Affected I wanted to follow up on the last episode with a freebie for people who are cleft affected.
Backstory: I approached a friend of mine who is a hypnotherapist, I explained to her the concept of Don't Get Lippy and what my aims were to support and empower the Cleft Community. I asked if she would be able to create something for me and after sharing some experiences with her, she created three hypnotherapy scripts - meditation soundtracks if the idea of hypnotherapy is too out there! - and today I'm sharing with you the 'Self Worth' soundtrack.
This soundtrack will help you build up your own self-worth and self-esteem, by using your creative mind to shift your position away from the more negative view you may have of yourself to a more objective one seen from those around you, who see you differently. This meditation/visualisation utilises various therapeutic ideas to help you create change for yourself.
This sound tracks require your full attention and require you to begin to relax so do not listen whilst driving or operating machinery. I encourage you to embrace this as part of your self-care routine or as part of your proactive preparation.
This recording has been made by Zetta Thomelin from Headtogether. Zetta teaches meditation and hypnotherapy and runs a private practice that utilises NLP and hypnotherapy to empower people to change. She is a Director of UKCHO, Chair of BAThH and author of The Healing Metaphor (https://www.headtogether.net).
We hope you enjoy!

An Introduction to Jen @ Don't Get Lippy I've realised I've never introduced my own story on my podcast, so here is a 30 min rambler episode talking about my home life, education and work life - all of which has shaped who and how I am today.
If you have time to rate or review the podcast, I would be so grateful!
