  • Stressed with work?
  • Too much going on in your life?
  • Feeling overwhelmed?
  • Having too many bad days?
  • Feeling low in mood?
  • Relationships failing?

Many life events impact on how you think, feel and behave and your 'normal' coping structure can fail if you are overwhelmed.

Events such as house moves, job/career changes, additions to the family, relationship problems and loss/bereavement can really affect how you face each day.

Sometimes things can get tough... a sense of isolation may set in and a general lack of control over things which have always been easy to manage, could become apparent.  Your ability to cope is outweighed by the demands in your life.

This site and the articles written within it are very much gleened from my experience as a mental health professional and I hope that you will find it helpful.

If you require immediate mental health support then please do contact your doctor to make an appointment.  The Samaritans are available 24/7 (free to call) - Ph: 116 123 (UK)
