Beating the Blues during Covid19

It is such an important topic.

Helen Dugdale 0 769

Being anxious over a change in our lives is Normal. It is called being human.

It is how we let that anxiety get to us that we need to address.

A certain amount of anxiety (or stress) can be useful – it can help spur us to react, to be responsive, to adapt.

We certainly have had a lot of changes in our lives recently.

So, no wonder there is a lot of anxiety around. Rather than buckle under, what can we do about it?

In this article, you will find a few coping strategies, (a few ‘brain hacks’)to avoid that anxiety taking over.

My background is in Science, Secondary Teaching and Rural Research & Development, Human Capacity Building, then studying Psychology at UNE (I graduated on my 62nd birthday – you are never too old!),  now I am offering Brain Coaching. Which is all about creating new habits – new pathways in your brain.

Free On-line Psychotherapy and Counselling Consultations

Helen Dugdale 0 1036

In these uncertain times, with lots of upheaval – some people maybe feeling overwhelmed and more anxious. I am offering free consultations via Skype or video conferencing, while we are all in social distancing mode. Even though face-to-face counselling is better, I would still like to offer my services to help alleviate people’s fears and anxieties, before it becomes a major health issue.

"I can do it"

Thanks, Helen,

The session really made my mind clear and took some fear/self-doubt away. You helped to tap in an area of darkness with deep awareness which gave me an unconditional strength and self-belief of mind “I can do it” rather than “ how to avoid this situation” 

Thanks again

Agoraphobia

Helen Dugdale 0 1010

"extreme or irrational fear of entering open or crowded places, of leaving one's own home, or of being in places from which escape is difficult."

It occurred to me that people suffering from this condition might have trouble getting help. How do they get out of the house to find out or to seek help? The answer is, they probably don't, they are more likely to read articles online or in newspapers or magazines, or hear about what help is available through friends or family.

They have an unusually high amount of anxiety about leaving the house and possibly having a panic attack, and sometimes it is the fear of having an attack which keeps them inside, rather than the fear of public spaces.
