    I have used grounding in sessions. Focus on my breathing, then focus on my physical sensations and the room and the therapist. The therapist sometimes guides it depending how far off I am. In public, I try to focus on my breathing, then a physical thing that I am touching such as keys. At home I can try other things but it seems physical body sensations and physical surroundings help.
