My therapist Caroline Powell was fantastic. She was compassionate and knowledgeable and an all around lovely person. She helped me through a tough time in my life by bringing to light the cause of my anxiety and depression, explaining why such feelings occur and teaching me how to deal with them. I had ten sessions with her and will be going back to see her in a few months for another ten. In the meantime, she provided me with her telephone number and said if I needed to talk she would be sure to make time for me. I feel like Caroline truly cares about my well-being, which in my opinion is one of the most important qualities a therapist can have.

Perhaps one of the more common presenting issues in therapy is anxiety. Here we outline information on Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder, including signs, causes, how therapy can help and other sources of support.

Mental Health in the News  - 
 
Interesting radio segment from Radio 4' 'Inside Health' on the merits of medication to help with alcohol dependence. Another point is that alcohol dependence should be treated before depression, when both conditions are present. Anti-depressants in such cases can be ineffective and lead to patient's being labelled as 'treatment resistant'.

I made the assumption that treatment was inclusive of pharmalogical and psychological approaches, but worth me checking that out. I do agree it should be looked at on a case by case basis. Thanks +Dustin Choate

Thanks +summer flower
Sympathy and empathy - when it comes to psychology, they are very different things. One empowers others, the other disempowers them. How do sympathy and empathy work?

Some insights into self-help books, including 'mood-boosting books' and 'books on prescription'.
Bibliotherapy - can you read yourself better? Self-help is a billion dollar business, and now books are being 'prescribed' to help with depression.

This is under-rated. The research I know on biblio therapy indicates the effect is real and substantial.

Exploring Positive Psychology  - the history and it's application in therapy, eduction and the workplace.
When researching the different areas of psychology you may come across a field called ‘positive psychology’. It might seem a redundant choice of names to some, as surely all psychology focuses on ‘being positive', right? Not at all. As a discipline, psychology has often rather focused

Excellent series of free guides by the Centre for Clinical Interventions - really useful to give to clients as part of their therapy. Some of these guides haven't been updated in a while, but others like this one on Body Dysmorphic Disorder have been newly published.

I have used these as have a few of our staff, and they have been quite useful to clients. Had helped with things like procrastination, assertiveness, etc. So awesome that they're made freely available.
