Good Emotional Health

To exercise physically has well-known benefits. Getting out of breath and raising your heart beat every day is recommended. Many of us do some physical exercise and also try to eat well, so why is it that some of us only look to consider our psychological wellbeing when we are really struggling, rather than as a proactive positive measure.

Positive psychological health, whatever your age, and when placed into your life as part of your routine, can be equally valuable as looking after your physical health and in our opinion is essential if you want to optimise your quality of life.   

What happens when you get a sports injury? Most people would go to a physiotherapist and follow the advice given and work at recovery. Most forward-thinking people are aware that visiting a specialist makes sense and the stigma regarding emotional health is diminishing. 

My colleagues and I would adhere to the principle that everyone is unique. Similar issues affect people differently and acting quickly can save a lot of long-term angst. Having spent thousands of hours listening to people and facilitating in helping them find their true selves leaves us with the clear view that everyone’s idea of a fulfilled life is also extremely personal and subjective. 

“It is crucial that when someone is closed down, hits a psychological crisis or stress saturation point they seek out professional help.”

It is said that ‘prevention is better than cure’ and this applies to psychological health and emotional intelligence. Is therapy something you only look to do in desperation or when you have come to the realisation that you cannot carry on? 

Why would you not seek out help or guidance to enhance your chances of having a contented, full and rewarding emotional life?
