#FridayFacts - Feelings and Emotions

#FridayFacts
 
Every Friday we'll post some 'facts' and information about mental health and wellbeing. The topic and focus of 'facts' will vary from week-to-week. The 'facts' this week are a little bit later than usual.

This week: here's some facts and myth-busting about feelings and emotions. I work with many people in therapy, CBT, counselling, in support groups, training and in other capacities who have come to believe (for many reasons) that feelings and emotions are 'bad', a sign of 'weakness', 'too much', 'something to be avoided', and that will 'last forever', amongst many other things.

I work with many clients in therapy on emotional regulation, tolerating distress and uncomfortable feelings and this work can be very powerful, especially if they believe that feelings and emotions are 'bad' or 'intolerable'. Learning more about what feelings, emotions and moods are is really important and useful and can have a really good impact on our perception of what feelings and emotions are and on our mental and emotional wellbeing generally.

The poster below provides some 'facts' and 'myth-busting'. Hope you find the poster useful. Have a good weekend and feel free to browse our website or get in touch via email if you wish. All the best, Alexandra :-)
