Really enjoyed an excellent study day last weekend led by Professor Chris Williams who is professor of Pyschosocial Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow. He is a brilliant communicator and specialises in the application of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to a wide variety of situations.
Most helpfully he has developed a self help web site www.livinglifetothefull.com which The Times has recognised as one of the top 4 mental health web sites. In addition he has written a number of helpful booklets, covering such subjects as low mood, anxiety, problem drinking, giving up smoking, eating disorders and much more. There's some details of these and more on his facebook page here.
Anxiety can be an overwhelming experience and I am so glad for these wonderfully helpful resources both for sufferers and those who try to help them.
No, not that side! But thank God got through surgery ok yesterday. And thanks to all for love support and prayer.
