Self help for Anger

Anger is a normal reaction and emotion. It can be very helpful as it motivates us to do something to right an injustice! It can also lead us into problems. 


Depression can happen to anyone – and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes. Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make-up, upbringing, or reaction to life events. What keeps it going though, is how we deal with those things. 

Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is a general state of long-lasting worry and anxiety and can affect you both physically and mentally.


Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be aware and fully present in the moment, helping us put space between ourselves and our reactions, breaking down conditioned responses.


A phobia is a fear of a particular thing or situation. Phobias can often have a first triggering event, which then results in the individual feeling very frightened when they then think about, see or are reminded of the feared object or situation.

Self Esteem

We tend to go through life evaluating ourselves and others according to a scale of worth. The idea of self esteem is the amount of value that we consider we are worth. 

Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety is an anxiety disorder where we believe that others will judge us negatively.


Stress is our emotional and physical response to pressure that can arise from both external and internal factors.

Health Anxiety

Individuals with Health Anxiety have an obsessive preoccupation with being seriously ill, seeking evidence that this ‘MUST’ be true.
