News on The CBT'ers Club

Our newly designed website is now ready and live, replacing the old one.

Hope you like it!

We'll be in touch with everyone who has expressed interest in renewing their Membership or who wishes to become a new Member over the next few days, so look out for the email (please also check your spam folder).

We've been having a break from the Club since summer 2019 and had hoped to 'break' the break in May 2020, however, COVID-19 has put those plans back a bit. However, we can still get going with some things, including applying for Membership and offering a couple of online meetings before face-to-face things resume (hopefully by autumn-time).

Many things remain the same; some things have changed; and some things have been added. 

Due to COVID-19, we are offering FREE Membership until September 2021. Membership applications are usually every March and September, however, from next week, we will be accepting new and renewed Membership …

#FridayFun: Video and We All Stand Together

#FridayFun


As you might now, we're replacing #FridayFacts with #FridayFun posts at the moment.


Today's wee bit of fun is the song and video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNESF-vhXtc&fbclid=IwAR3fdZfatlazpwsuYsLH1KRW6p10j6kJ4PWKjvcFjB-sULcgLM-Ithy954M
I was 6 when this song came out and remember it as a child. It's very apt for the situation we all find ourselves in at the moment. Hope you enjoy it.

I will most definitely have this song in my head all day now though!

Have a good day, stay safe and take care,

Alexandra

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.


Moodles are little creative exercises you can do to become aware of feelings, reduce stress or anxiety, help you relax or feel better and much more.

Some people have a wee bit more time on their hands at the moment (I wish I did!), so engaging in some creative activites for mental health can really improve wellbeing and stress at the moment.

I've provided 4 Moodles to try below. 

Give one or more of these a go and see how you get on... it might even help you feel a wee bit better.

Take care and have a good day, Alexandra


Moodle #1

 'Write a break-up letter to your stress'



Moodle #2

'Oh no! Here comes your evil stress monster. Moodle it some wings and watch it fly away'.




Moodle #3

With everything that's going on with COVID-19 at the moment, it can be easy to slip into thinking about things we're not in control of at the moment, or the things that are not going right or perhaps focusing on feeling overwhe…

We are still open... offering online therapy and counselling (via Zoom or Email Therapy and Counselling)

We are still open and providing support, therapy, counselling and CBT for those looking for support, someone to talk to and a listening ear.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are currently only providing online therapy. We can provide therapy and counselling via a secure and GDPR-compliant video-conferening platoform called Zoom or we can provide Email Therapy and Counselling.

You can return to face-to-face sessions once the situation has settled or continue with online sessions. The choice is yours.

Online therapy means we can now reach more people and can therefore, provide appointments via Zoom or Email Therapy and Counselling to anyone in the UK.

We still have some appointment slots available with our various psychotherapists and counsellors, so please do feel free to get in touch for more information or to book an appointment.

Thanks and speak soon,

Alexandra

Some words on COVID-19 and feelings of uncertainty, unknowingness, anxiety, fear and being out-of-control at the moment. Because we know many of you are feeling these things.

Some words on COVID-19 and feelings of uncertainty, unknowingness, anxiety, fear and being out-of-control at the moment. Because we know many of you are feeling these things.
Amidst the panic and anxiety surrounding the current COVID-19 situation is the sense of feeling trapped, out-of-control or even helpless.
These are some of the feelings our clients and those getting in touch about accessing therapy are expressing. The urgency and panic created by the media doesn't help with these feelings either and it only really increases our sense of things feeling out of our control.
I think there are 2 things to consider that can help us surf through these waves of uncertainty, anxiety and sense of unknowingness.
1. ACCEPTANCE: The first is acceptance. While it is distressful to do so, accepting that life for the next few months will be different can be really helpful. That's just how it is. There's nothing we can do about the virus because it's already here, however, we can acce…
