Therapy Blog

Here, you’ll find my thoughts on all things mental health. I hope you find it useful and inspiring, it’s a resource designed to add value.

Having a foot firmly in both the psychology and psychotherapy camps, in the therapy blog I aim to explore the way that they can empower each other. The fact that there is a profession aimed at understanding and alleviating suffering of the mind is a constant inspiration to me.

I see mental health as being underpinned by mental fitness. We can improve our lives and how we feel by how we think, and thinking well is a skill we can learn like any other. This therapy blog looks at some the most common issues, informing you and helping.

We can use psychotherapy and psychology not just in times of difficulty, but to build fitter, stronger minds and improve our ability to cope.

If you have any thoughts or comments please feel free to contact me, and thanks for reading.
