Re: Anxiety about Winter months coming with SAD + New Born

Hi, Thank you for reaching out to us for advice. I think the first thing you need to do is to go back to your GP and tell them what you have told us and insist that you get additional support before you have your baby. Also, speak to your midwife so they can support you after the birth. I would seri...

Re: What is the difference between habit and addiction

Hi Denise, What an interesting question. Food addiction is just as real as other kinds of addiction and in some ways harder to handle as there's no 'rehab' as such unless you took yourself off to a desert island and you need to eat to stay alive! The modern world is so full of temptations with adver...

Re: Commuting too much

Hi, This sounds really challenging and as you say it means work eats into your weekend as well as the week if you have to be travelling on a Sunday.

Re: Too Tired!

Hi Sarah, It's so easy to fall into this trap, isn't it! It seems to me that if you can't change either your commute, your job location or move to flexible working the answer is to really make the most of the time you do have for yourself. So plan your weekends carefully and make sure that you do th...

Re: Is your Mental Wellbeing affected by what you eat?

Hi, The answer to your question is yes! Recently researchers and practitioners have begun to explore how food affects mental health and wellbeing. We all know that there are certain foods that we crave when we are upset or anxious (usually high fat!) but the link between what we eat and mental healt...
