Maybe "self soothing" is something that is related to the pain, while distraction is something unrelated to the pain. Like if you are upset about vomit. Self soothing would be to explain to yourself that you know that there isn't anything intrisically dangerous about it, that if you wear gloves and are careful, that you can clean it up and dispose of it without it being damaging to you. Whereas distraction would be to go to another room and play with your dogs.

So it sounds like 3 out of 3 therapists agree on this... Sorry. I know that isn't what you wanted to hear. But at least they aren't telling you conflicting things...
