My latest SEMPI Real Conversations

"ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. LET'S TALK OPENLY ABOUT ABUSE OF ALL TYPES. IT'S TIME TO SPEAK UP" Alyce Lauren (2019)


SEMPI REAL CONVERSATIONS Welcomes @alyce_lauren to be our first guest to be #interviewed for the beginning of this #newyear 
#2019yearofsempiconversation Alyce is a childhood sexual abuse survivor who is using her voice to help others who don't have a voice yet.
Alyce wants people to know that "I am a true survivor just wanting to help others, and I'm real and honest."
Alyce was adopted at 1 year of age, and #molested by her adopted 'monster #father' from age 2. The first time Alyce ever spoke about her serious abuse to an adult in authority, her psychiatrist, she was not believed. 
Alyce wants you to know 3 key points:
1: Remind yourself to be your own HERO!
2: If a child comes to you talking about any kind of abuse, LISTEN TO THEM AND BELIEVE THEM!
3: It happens to #mentoo :(
4: You are not what happened to you.
5. You are not the only one out there.
Alyce's story is #real, and at times she is #triggered during the interview, but still wanted to be #filmed so other survivors can see that you can sit with the #pain, #talk about what happened, #explore the #story, and come out the other side feeling a bit better.
She says that #healing can take a #lifetime, and to please see a #therapist, and start your journey toward peace within yourself.
Alyce is a true #mentalhealthwarrior and we are #grateful to have her speak so openly and honestly on SEMPI Real Conversations.
Please go to my #youtube channel under #sempisocialcommunicationmodel if you would like to see over 50 videos made, teaching and interviewing real people using SEMPI, warmest regards Alyse



My interview with Tania Rose

HI everyone, here is the latest video that I did with Tania Rose, about my SEMPI Social Communication Model. I talk here in depth about some of my views on how we, as a community can change stigma around mental health, and then we go through and check in with each other, by asking, 'How is Your SEMPI?' This exercise enabled us to gain a deeper perspective of how we were feeling holistically, right in that moment. 

Thanks for watching, Alyse.
