Mental and Emotional Health

Is Mental Wellbeing More Important Than Ever?

Hi, I’m Tracey. I have a passion for emotional and mental wellbeing. In fact we all do at Lighthouse, perhaps because it’s so crucial to living a good life. We know that people of all ages have experienced more stresses and strains in recent months and have decided to provide some info on how to access support.

Counselling & Time to Talk

A good counsellor, or psychologist, for that matter will put your emotional wellbeing at the centre of the time they spend with you. The best thing about counselling is talking through concerns with someone who is not going to judge you. Your counsellor wants to find ways to help you cope with things that are bothering you, help you to find your own solutions and to feel positive emotions and gain an appreciation of life.
