3 Top Tips Regarding Psychiatry

Becoming a doctor in and of itself is a great achievement. One thing that is a common denominator in all countries in medical schools is the kind of effort that one needs to put in to become a doctor and to work hard to get through the courses that make you one - a doctor is for life. However, what you chose to do later depends on many factors. The choice of a psychiatry residency or postgraduate training depends on 3 important factors which doctors should consider while getting into the course

Three common misconceptions regarding psychotherapy

22 March 2019

expert tips

by Ioanna Hadjicharalambous

It is common for people to come to me and tell me their thoughts about psychotherapy. Although some people have a good understanding of psychotherapy, many are those who misunderstand what it means to be in therapy. Here are the three ideas that people believe, but are not so accurate:

 

  1. I have done many therapies.

 

  1. You will go and talk to a trained person, they will give you a solution.

 

  1. Why talk to a stranger and not to my friends?

 

For each of these, we could write a long essay to explain what is and what is not the case, but for now, I will give a short explanation of each.

“I am sick of having to do everything!” . Does this sound familiar? I have heard this numerous times over the years from stressed out clients that have come to my practice that want me to help them with stress and anger issues. I ask them to list all of the things they HAVE to do and this usually includes a list of things that they have to do for other people. Sometimes I even get tired listening to the lengthy list that they recite to me. No wonder they are stressed out.

The importance of Feng Shui

15 March 2019

expert tips

by Sabine Millauriaux

Feng Shui is the art and science of living in harmony with our environment. It is a system for arrangement and placement that originated in China and is now widely used to bring prosperity and balance in businesses and homes.

In our fast-paced modern world, we are constantly submitted to negative stimuli. Our home, which should be a haven to relax and recharge is often a place where bad energies are at play. Even if we are not conscious of it, inappropriate placement of furniture, bad memories and residual energy in objects and space, clutter, colors, paintings, they all affect our well-being.

What you see every day will reinforce patterns but if you change the setting, and basically that is what a Feng Shui consultant does, it will create new pathways and allow you to be more in charge, the creator of your life. It is like changing the settings in a computer program.

So who cares...for the caregiver?

14 March 2019

expert tips

by Vance Larson

vance-larson-summary.jpg

Your friends, family members and even co-workers turn to you. When there are problems and they are hurting, it's you that is at the front of the line offering help. You care for everyone. You are exhausted. You run out of energy and wonder, "Who cares for the caregiver?"

Approximately 20% of my practice is supporting caregivers. Why do they reach out? Because they burn out. Because they care, and are dedicated to their profession, and/or their family member. What surprises me is that it is only 20%. That somehow, many caregivers have lost sight of giving care to themselves. Even worse, that getting help for themselves somehow invalidates their strength. When in fact, that is the furthest thing from the truth.

expert tips

by Dr Ana Georgieva

One of the most common problems people encounter at work is the level of distractions and interruptions they experience. This seems to be driven by the intensity of multiple demands coming at us from all sorts of directions. The result is that frustration builds as our energy becomes depleted, along with the ability to manage our attention and stay focused on getting things done. This takes a serious toll on our work performance and well-being.

I want to be explicitly clear. Sometimes the next 15 minutes is what matters most.

 I wrote a piece a few days ago called 3 Weeks. I spoke of the importance that many people place on the time between December 25th and January 15th. There is hope in the air and resolutions on the mind. People are generally excited during this time of year. But what happens to those who are not hopeful? They can't get excited for 3 weeks, let alone 3 hours. Sometimes, all they can do is think about now. So lets talk about 15 minutes.

3 Common Misconceptions Regarding Fussy Eating

08 March 2019

expert tips

by Aliya Porter

aliya-porter-summary.jpg

1) Fussy eaters are fussy because their parents haven't been strict enough with them about food.

This is not true. There are lots of reasons why children are fussy. It could be because they are not well and so food tastes different or makes them feel unwell when they eat it. It could be a way of them exercising control or trying to get attention. It could be due to a change in circumstances like moving house or the arrival of a new sibling. The key thing is to stay calm and to ask for help. The GP is a good place to start to check there is nothing medically wrong. I have supported lots of parents. I always get them to see their GP first before we work on behalf interventions.
