“I went to see Dionne who was recommended to me by a friend as I had depression. Before I went I was very skeptical and thought ‘what’s talking to a compete stranger going to do?’ But I gave it a try and I’m very glad I did. Dionne made me feel comfortable from the start and never pushed me to talk about things that I didn’t want to but over time I felt I could trust Dionne and I found myself telling her things that I had never spoke of before. With the help of CBT activities I was able to break the cycle of seeing everything in a negative light and life is now a lot more positive”.
DEPRESSION IS NOT SIMPLY FEELING UNHAPPY OR FED UP FOR A FEW DAYS!
We all go through spells of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.
Some people still think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They’re wrong. Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and it’s not a sign of weakness or something you can “snap out of” by “pulling yourself together”.
The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.

For Adults emotional eating could be because of Depression, boredom, loneliness, chronic anger, anxiety, frustration, stress, problems with interpersonal relationships and poor self-esteem can result in overeating and unwanted weight gain. By identifying what triggers our emotional eating, we can substitute more appropriate techniques to manage our emotional problems and take food and weight gain out of the equation.
TREATMENT FOR PHOBIAS/TRAUMA
Types of trauma included psychological bullying, physical and sexual assaults including rape and sexual abuse, car accidents, muggings/assaults, the witnessing of critical incidents, being trapped in lifts.One technique that is very effective for PTSD is the Rewind Technique. This simple and safe technique could make an amazing difference to your life. Symptoms of PTS such as nightmares, intrusive thoughts and flashbacks can be reduced and often ended in one to three sessions.
The actual phobia or trauma does not have to be discussed allowing the trauma to be treated both quickly and reliably, with the minimum of distress to sufferers.
We all get stressed at some point, usually when we feel we have too much to do and too much on our minds, or when we allow other people to make unreasonable demands on us and on our time, or we are dealing with situations that we do not have control over.
Stress is not a medical condition, but relentless stress that continues for a period of time may lead to depression or anxiety, or more severe mental health problems.
Counselling can help you to reduce the effects of stress by helping you to become more conscious of the things that cause it, and teach you strategies, such as relaxation and lifestyle changes, that will help you to cope with and handle stress in a much better way.
INTRUSIVE THOUGHTS – where a person generally has thoughts that are repetitive, alarming and often shocking and repugnant in nature. For example, thoughts of causing vicious or sexual harm to family or friends.
Because the intrusive thoughts are repetitive and not voluntarily produced, they cause the sufferer extreme distress – the very idea that they are capable of having such thoughts in the first place can be horrific. However, what we do know is that people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder are the least likely people to actually act on the thoughts, partly because they find them so repulsive and go to great lengths to steer clear of them and prevent them happening.
Therapy can help you realise that it is not the thought, but the meaning you attach to the thought which is actually causing the problem. For help and advice call 0754 282 0678.
Planned relaxation calms anxiety/stress and helps your body and mind recover from everyday struggles. Music, a long soak in the bath, or a walk in the park do the trick for some people, but for others it’s not so easy. Although the cause of the anxiety/stress wont disappear you will be less likely to rely on smoking or food as a way of coping. You will feel more able to deal with issues once you’ve released the tension in your body and cleared your thoughts.
relaxation can help alleviate stress and anxiety.All relaxation techniques combine breathing more deeply with relaxing the muscles. Don’t worry if you find it difficult to relax at first. It’s a skill that needs to be learned and it will come with practice.
Relaxation is one of the most effective self-help activities for mental health. It can be a useful addition to any other form of treatment as well as being an effective measure to prevent the development of stress and anxiety, and at the end of the day to help you sleep.
Grief, although normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways. Some people get angry, some people withdraw further into themselves and some people become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious – like depression.
