Mental health can be a sensitive subject, as many might people find it uncomfortable to discuss. Having issues with mental health is nothing to be ashamed of.  Finding someone to talk to can be benificial as without any support, some turn to unhealthy ways to try to manage their problems such as using drugs and alcohol, gambling, food, or misusing the internet as attempts to cope with their issues. This can lead to cycles of negative behaviour and an inability to function in society.

Counselling can help identify triggers that can be the root cause of mental healths issues.By becoming more self aware of your triggers you can learn how to manage them and take control of presenting concerns.

  • True Triggers

    True triggers are when our brain is activated by something in our environment such as smell or a real re-experience. Rather than just a picture of a car you may find yourself in a car with the smell of the interior

  • Associations

    Uncomfortable associations are links we have made in our mind. You may of been bullied at school so you may associate teachers with being bullied

  • Reminders

    Distressing reminders evoke memories of a traumatic event, and cause negative,harmful feelings. These are when we know why we’re triggered but we can describe them, but not always explain them.
