A therapy day for therapists
These past couple of years have put an unheard of strain on all of us, and the mental health section of the NHS has been overwhelmed with old and new clients. Their waiting list and time to obtain a consultation has doubled in some areas. If you consider that early intervention in many of these cases is paramount to the recovery time of the client, it is easy to see why I have personally been inundated by desperate people, the vast majority suffering from generalised anxiety and all the conditions that stem from it.
They don’t, as a rule, want to take anti-depressants, or anti-anxiety medications while they wait for an NHS appointment, and many wouldn’t need them if they could get an early appointment. Some cannot even get a face-to-face GP session and others who contact Healthy Minds have a six-month wait and so feel frustrated and look for other pathways they can take.
So why this day for therapists?
The reason I have listed this CPD day is, from a personal point of view, some days when I have seen a few clients who are overwhelmed with personal problems and the anxiety that comes with them, I feel I need a session myself.
So let's all have a day of fun, and a little bit of seeing things differently ourselves; let's make sense of the senselessness, and maybe learn new ways of dealing with our own and other therapists' problems, but in a different way. Hopefully, by December this will be at our Birmingham centre, but if you cannot get to us on that day, because of distance, or no places left, you can still join us on Zoom.
