“Everyone is unique and different and has different importance on triggers for individuals, what I like to do is wherever possible is remove emotion. Because we know that when we get into heightened emotional situations, we go into that fight, flight, or freeze mechanism part of our brain. The limbic system is reliant heavily on emotion our history and our memory. And we don’t necessarily want to go there, we want to take back control.” – Dave Diggle
