or initial assessment
Just as it would be important for your GP to try and understand the nature and causes of your stomach pain to be able to provide the right treatment, the more we understand the nature of our psychological difficulties, how our mind works and how these have been shaped by our environment, the more likely we are to find effective ways of addressing them.
In psychological therapy, this process is often called a formulation following an initial assessment period.

A trigger is the connection between the conscious mind and a buried painful memory.
Decisions are made both on the conscious and unconscious level. When the two decisions don’t agree with each other, we experience anxiety.
Don’t give into stigma. A diagnosis does not determine who you are or what you can do. Don’t let your struggle become your identity.
Mindfulness can: help reduce stress, anxiety and conflict, increase resilience and emotional intelligence and improve communication.
Try to experience your emotions as a wave coming and going, notice them, witness them and name them, don’t try to suppress them or push them away.
Ceri’s an amazing lady. A fire sunk my boat. Afterwards I knew I had to talk about it and what was going on in my head, but in this industry you cant show weakness or you’re thought of as weak. I’ve recommended it to other people; once came out nearly in tears, someone asked me what was wrong so I told them. You have to talk about things, not bottle it up. If not I’d have had a drink, probably become self-destructive.
Thank you. About three years ago l was going through a very tough period in my life, I was suffering from anxiety, PTSD and depression, Ceri was a massive help to my recovery gave me the words I needed to hear and gave me courage to keep going, I am now in a much better place, we need more people like Ceri in this world.
