The approach of Autumn!

With the summer coming to an end how can I prepare for the approach of shorter days, longer nights and colder weather?

Here are some simple steps you can take to prepare for winter

1, Find an activity you like and set some time aside to do it. At first this may seem irksome but, if you are able take up an activity now, by the time winter bites you will be absorbed enough in your sport to be distracted from the weather. You will be prioritising your sport as you

2, If you are unable to take part in sport, now is a good time to educate yourself in a subject that interests you. If you put the effort in now, by the time winter comes, you will have developed an interest that keeps you from thinking so much about the impact winter has on your life.

Whatever intervention I offer in my work this week in Bournemouth, Poole or Dorset as a couple counsellor or as a counsellor for teenagers and adolescents or as a family therapist, be it, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, Psychodrama, Person Centered Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Solution Focused Therapy, Integrative Therapy or Family Therapy, I have respect and empathy for anyone who is prepared to share their story with me as this relates to the second point I made above.

Taking an interest in yourself and prioritizing this interest is surely the most rewarding and absorbing pastime for winter!!
