Mental Health

Mental health determines how well we relate to others, how we handle situations and relationships, how we make the most of our potential and most importantly how we cope with life.

Stress

Anxiety

Depression

When we are feeling low, stressed or worried, these moments can pass quite quickly, however, if they are prolonged for very long periods of time, they can develop into more serious problems. 

Stress, anxiety and depression are a result of prolonged low periods of time.

Mental health can change through different stages of life, it can improve and it can decline.  When it declines, we can help you bounce back to a more balanced and happier life.

Stress

Commonly known as one of the most common mental health problems throughout the UK, stress can negatively impact families, relationships and the workplace.  If it is prolonged, it often manifests in emotional and physical imbalances.

Through stress counselling, we can help you pinpoint the root cause of your stress and use our stress management solutions to help you decrease it.  In order to understand your thought processes, we work with you to develop stress-reducing techniques to enable you to live a healthier and more stress-free life.

 

Signs of stress include:

  • Negative thoughts and feelings
  • Problems concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Worry
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of motivation
  • Social withdrawal
  • Insomnia
  • Low energy
  • Loss of libido
  • Headaches
  • Panic attacks
  • Depression

Stress Counselling helps to examine your thoughts and feelings to explore any underlying issues, gain understanding and identify your stress triggers, offers coping strategies and techniques to use on a daily basis to ultimately improve your ability to handle situations that lead to your particular stress.

Anxiety

Anxiety is the body’s natural reaction to stress.  It is a feeling of worry and unease which ultimately manifests into feelings of dread or fear.  This could be in relation to a difficult negative situation, relationship or person, a job interview, a hospital appointment or financial worries.  Anxiety can be caused by many things.

If a situation causes a feeling of panic (flight or fight reaction), it can leave you feeling powerless.  It can produce tension in your body, headaches and a general feeling of unpleasantness.  You may daydream often about difficult situations that only exacerbate your feelings of desperation and unhappiness.

    Signs of anxiety include:

        • Negative thoughts and feelings
        • Problems concentrating
        • Having a sense of impending doom
        • Panic and worry
        • Mood swings
        • Loss of appetite
        • Loss of motivation
        • Social withdrawal
        • Insomnia
        • Low energy
        • Loss of libido
        • Headaches

    We can help you explore those triggers, gain an understanding of what is causing them and work with you to design a coping strategy to bring about a more healthy change.  We will help you keep on track, work through any potential barriers and tailor-make your treatment whilst giving you ongoing emotional support.

    Depression

    From time to time we all feel a little miserable and fed up, but if they are prolonged, persistent low feelings of hopelessness, restlessness and having no pleasure from life could be signs of depression amongst others.  Feelings of worthlessness, avoiding people and situations together with difficulties with sleeping can prevent you from living a happier life. 

    Signs of depression include:

    • Feelings of hopelessness
    • Feeling irritable, restless and agitated
    • Problems concentrating and making decisions
    • Social withdrawal, avoiding people or situations
    • Waking up early, sleeping too much, insomnia
    • Loss of libido
    • Loss of motivation
    • Low energy
    • Headaches
    • Thoughts of suicide

    There is no quick and easy relief from depression, but once it has been identified, you can benefit from talking to us to explore the root cause and find a resolution that works for you.  Lifting the spiral of depression is manageable once we get to the bottom of the underlying cause and develop a strategy to enable you to tackle it.

    With our ongoing emotional support, we will help you keep on track and work through any potential emotional barriers that may arise.

    Depression counselling can help you with:

    • Suicidal thoughts
    • PND (post-natal depression)
    • Social withdrawal
    • Feelings of hopelessness
    • Changes in appetite
    • Low mood
    • Bereavement
    • Work issues/redundancy
