Mental Health Maintenance During the Same Sex Postal Vote

By | LGBTQI, Mental Health, Mindfulness | No Comments

Maintaining Mental Health During the Same-Sex Postal Vote The internet and media have been flooded with the conversation about marriage equality for the past few years now, however, nothing has compared to the level of exposure it has received over the past few weeks. Along with it has come an alarming amount of anxiety and shame that many had felt they had dealt with and resolved long ago. While we can’t prevent people from voicing their beliefs, we can learn how to ensure we protect and maintain our own mental health and allow ourselves to become mentally stronger and resilient. Since the idea of a marriage equality plebiscite was first presented, there has been strong resistance to it from mental health organisations who were concerned that it would cause mental hardship on the LGBT community. In the past week, many mental health organisations have spoken about the sharp increase on their services from LGBT youth who are struggling with this vicious debate with some organisations having a 20% increase in their calls. While the government promised a ‘civilized debate’, the ability to facilitate this around such a personal topic that people care passionately about was always going to be in…

OUTthink – When Joey Dumped Keane

By | LGBTQI, Loss, Podcast | No Comments

OUTthink – When Joey Dumped Keane (Or When Friends Just Disappear) What did I do? In this episode of OUTthink, we’re going to take a look at what happens when you start to lose friends and you’re not entirely sure why. For most people, their circle of friends is absolutely vital to them. For the LGBT community, who may not always have the support of their families, their friends might be the closest thing they have instead. So what happens when you have friends who suddenly seem to just disappear on you? The ones who just ‘went strange’ and no longer wanted to talk to you? The ones who accused you of being something that you’re completely not? Even the ones who you would’ve said knew you better than anyone else, and then they just vanish? For many people, it can bring up deep-rooted feelings of not fitting in, of being flawed, of not being loveable. For others, it may leave them constantly wondering what they did wrong as they go on an endless search to find meaning to an otherwise meaningless event. Even in this current political climate where the emotions of the LGBT community can be heightened from…

I’ll Show You How To Build a Hypnotherapy Mixer

I’ll Show You How To Build a Hypnotherapy Mixer I’m so glad to be able to offer you this webinar on how to build your own hypnotherapy mixer. This is a device that is going to really assist you in delivering sessions to your clients at a whole new level. What’s a hypnotherapy mixer? Good question! Essentially, a hypnotherapy mixer is a small audio mixing device that allows you to deliver your session to your client via a headset and allows them to communicate back via theirs. As it goes through an audio mixer, it also means that you can ‘mix in’ background music, soundscapes or binaural beats as well, offering a very different experience. This could be particularly useful in environments that can be rather noisy and help to block out any other background noises. I know that personally, in my own space, noises from neighboring rooms and businesses, the outside lifts ringing and people loudly walking past can be a real issue to contend with at times. While you could offer the suggestion during hypnosis of ignoring the other noises (in fact, they will only help you to go deeper), it can still be a real conscious distraction…
