Getting Mental Health On The Line - Weekending 28/05/17

Getting Mental Health On The Line - Weekending 28/05/17

This is a weekly post to act as an additional resource for both clients and fellow therapists alike.

This week, we’re presenting some of the best from the past week featuring topics as diverse as a look at cognitive distortions, a look at the stigma around mental health, a fascinating look at how hypnosis can help with allergies, learn hypnosis basics via the brilliant guys at Uncommon Knowledge (plus a free hypnosis session audio from them on terrorism if the past weeks events have had an impact on you), a look at leadership and higher purpose, getting started with self-actualisation, and finally, a look at how the unconscious helps to create the narrative (and your reality) in consciousness. It's a MASSIVE week.

If you have a video that you would like featured in our weekly roundup, then drop Lawrence a line with a link to your video.

There's no shame in taking care of your mental health | Sangu Delle

By TED Talks

In a personal talk, Delle shares how he learned to handle anxiety in a society that's uncomfortable with emotions. As he says: "Being honest about how we feel doesn't make us weak — it makes us human."

The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).

His Happiness Advantage training is the largest and most successful positive psychology corporate training program to date in the world. Shawn is the author of three New York Times best-selling books.
