Are you looking after your mental health?
There is a lot of coverage in the media nowdays about how you should look after your physical health and I am guessing that you understand the importance of this? But what if I were to ask you this; when did you last see a therapist or think about ways to improve your mental and emotional well-being? I wonder what your answer would be? Would you agree with me that it is important to look after your mental health in the same way as you would or do your physical fitness?
In fact, poor and neglected mental health can be directly linked to poor physical well-being. Statistics tell us that one in five people suffers from poor mental health. Perhaps when you consider poor mental health you may think; it's about suffering from Depression or Schizophrenia. So let’s take a moment to think about other mental problems that may possibly affect you, perhaps you are prone to bouts of stress, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue or simply just “feeling down”.
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”

With an ethos that helps people to take back control of their mental health – managing their thinking, feelings and behaviour – I work with clients who are struggling with:
Anxiety- All forms of Anxiety,
Stress, personally and at work,
Working teens and supporting their families,
Outdoor therapy- walking and talking,
I ask all my clients to start by thinking about their goals and the changes they want to make so that we together can identify your “preferred future”. Every session has a focus and a purpose and every session will move you forward and it will help you to make sustainable positive changes.
