Self Care and Wellbeing

Taking care of yourself is more than simply attending to your physical needs. Wellbeing is dependent on all aspects of our lives. Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and experiences that are carried within us affect us just as much as our muscles, tendons, blood, nerves and other body parts. Physical and emotional health are intertwined: when one is affected, so is the other, and in the same vein, when one improves, so does the other. Psychological and counselling treatments empower individuals by developing their capacity to resolve emotional, personal and relationship issues. Through these processes, greater self awareness and positive changes are achieved.
