Tips for working with a mental healthcare professional
In this week's podcast we're responding to the following question from our inbox:
"Lately I feel even more beat down by my anxiety than usual. I wonder if some time you could talk about knowing when it's time to seek face to face care with a mental health professional? Maybe the broad strokes of what different kinds of care are available."
Points to consider:
it is important to find someone you are comfortable with
you should feel safe, free to speak and never judged
it's OK to try different practitioners and different therapies until you find one that you are happy with
bodywork can be helpful - for example: acupuncture or massage
