#MondayMotivation: We All Need Someone to Talk To Sometimes...Don't We?

#MondayMotivation

Here's this week's Monday Motivation. Hope you like it! Feel free to share.


Talking to others about our problems, concerns, thoughts, feelings or about whatever is going on for us in life can be tricky at times. It can be hard to open up and have time to focus on ourselves. However, your mental health is sooooooo important and deserved the same care as your physical health. The poster below gives some tips to help you move towards talking to someone about some of the thoughts, feelings, concerns or experiences you may have.


We All Need Someone to Talk To Sometimes...Don't We?

Sometimes we all need someone to talk to - about the big and the smaller things in life. Perhaps you need a listening ear and someone to talk to about life's struggles and stresses. Or perhaps you experience low mood, depression, anxiety, problems with food/eating, OCD, body dysmorphic disorder, self-harm etc. and other mental health issues. Or perhaps you need some support with increasing confidence, self-esteem, relationship issues, assertiveness, stress and more.

Whatever the case may be, Talking EDs (Glasgow & West Eating Disorder Support Service) and Citizen17 Therapy, CBT & Counselling Services can provide access to qualified therapists and counsellors and offer support and a listening ear through CBT Therapy, Integrative Psychotherapy, Counselling, Coaching, Stress Management Therapy and Guided Self-Help Sessions.


If you feel that things are getting on top of you or that you are struggling to cope, then perhaps it's time to reach out for some help and support. Feel free to get in touch with our friendly and understanding therapists today for more information or if you have any questions, or see the websites below.

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER
As we said yesterday, this week in Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. This is a national awareness week and the theme this year is Body Image.
See Monday's post to see what we are doing this week. We will also be posting everyday this week on Facebook, Twitter and the blog about Body Image and BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder).
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition related to Body Image where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.
People of any age can have BDD and it affects anyone of any gender or sex.
Having BDD does not mean you are vain or self-obsessed. It can be very upsetting and have a big impact on your life. Low mood, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, stress, trauma, self-harm and eating disorders are some of the other conditions that can co-occur with BDD.
Some of the symptoms of BDD include:
* worrying a lot about a sp…

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa


The term ‘anorexia nervosa’ is itself misleading and generally considered a misnomer.
‘Anorexia’ implies the individual has lost all interest in food, never hungry and has no appetite. Yet, this is rarely the case. The opposite is more accurate of anorexia. 

The person experiencing anorexia is not only very interested in food and frequently very hungry, but as weight continues to decrease and the person reaches low-weight stages AN, his/her preoccupation and obsession with food becomes overwhelming. 

Nevertheless, the person will do everything in their power to deny and ignore these feelings & sensations & not permit him/herself to eat. This is a particularly important characteristic of AN, along with the individual’s attempt to strictly control food and eating, with great time & effort.
The question of ‘what is Anorexia Nervosa?’ is a difficult one to answer given particularly complex & multidimensional nature of the il…
