It’s Good to Talk
As lockdown eases, many of us expect to feel relieved, however, these changes can bring up new feelings of stress or anxiety. Mental health charity Mind have some good advice for managing your post-lockdown emotions.
Telephone and Online Counselling
I am experienced in offering therapy over the telephone and on Skype. I’ve found that both are just as effective as face-to-face counselling, which is good to know at a time when we’re all concerned about social distancing. This article explains how to get the best out of your telephone and online counselling sessions.
Nurturing Your Relationships
Relationships have been difficult during lockdown. We’re spending all of our time with very few people and yet we’re unable to see many of our loved ones. I was pleased to read this post about how to nurture your relationships, both face-to-face and from a safe distance.
This is an emotional time for all of us, and you may have heard the word coronanxiety being used to describe the stress and anxiety associated with Coronavirus. Anxiety UK have put together a page of resources to help you cope with the emotional impact of COVID-19.
Anxiety and Coronavirus
If you need further help, I offer face-to-face and telephone counselling in order to support you from the comfort of your home. Please contact me for more information.
When you lose someone you care about, the grief can affect every area of your life. It helps to talk about what you’re going through, but that’s not always easy. After doing a survey which found that 36 per cent of us have felt unable to open up about grief, the Sue Ryder bereavement charity have started a #justsaysomething campaign to get us talking.
