One of my favourite parts of the 1-2-1 therapy side of my job is parent training.
I love being able to support parents to help their child overcome social, emotional and behavioural mishaps.
Being the supporting arm of a family for just 12 weeks but making a humongous difference to their lives.
As a psychologist I work with people from all walks of life (and who have a whole host of different difficulties), and depression is by far the most common difficulty I come across.
As with all mental health difficulties depression really doesn’t care whether you’re young, old, black, white, green, male, female …
When your brain decides life is just too difficult it goes into shutdown mode and ‘bam’ every ounce of motivation you once had is gone.
