The 'Feelings Wheel'
So many of us have difficulty describing how we're feeling. I love this tool, that helps to break down different feelings and give language to them.
What is Depression?
Excellent video on Depression from the folks at Therapist Aid.
Excellent video explaining some of the key concepts of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT is an evidence-based treatment for Anxiety, Depression and a wide range of other issues.
CBT for Anxiety - TED Talk
Excellent talk by Dr Keith Gaynor, on how CBT treatment can help to manage anxiety. Research has found that CBT is a highly effective treatment for anxiety.
The 'Mindswipe' Technique
Negative Automatic Thoughts are something we all experience. A key element of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is working ways to deal with those thoughts.
I love this technique from TodayFM presenter, Dermot Whelan - which he calls 'Mindswipe'. I regularly recommend clients to watch this video and it's amazing how many people connect with it.
I am currently in the final stages of developing a series of Wellbeing Workshops and talks, in collaboration with some counselling colleagues. We aim to begin rolling out these workshops in April of this year. Very excited about this new project!
Further details will be available on www.wellbeingworkshops.ie in the coming weeks.
