I focus on helping everyday heroes get unstuck, find balance and feel strong again through therapy. 

As a person with a big heart, you give selflessly because it’s in your nature to help.

To the outside world, you are caring, dependable and strong. People admire your dedication and passion in all that you do. With so much to offer, people tend to lean on you for help and support. Who do you lean on for helping support?

It’s no wonder you love to help when you feel appreciated in return. Perhaps you’ve also chosen a career path to help others. With your talents, skills and inner drive, you’ve got what it takes to make a real difference in people’s lives. And you do.

 

As far as anyone can tell, you have it all together. But little do they know, you are close to burning out. Helpers need helping too.

 

It’s not easy living up to the label of “superhuman”. The trouble is because you’re good at doing what you love, you do more. This means you’re constantly busy and always on-the-go. In fact, it’s hard for you to say “no”, to step away from responsibility, to put yourself first. Without feeling guilty. You would rather carry the weight of the world on your shoulders than let other people down.

A man sits in the shadows with his head in his hand feeling stressed and facing burnout. Feeling stuck in life as if a game of chess, the man knows a lot is at stake if he doesn't take care of his mental health. As depicted in YTherapy, the man considers how counselling and psychotherapy can focus on helping him win in life.

On the inside, you’re struggling. However, your pain goes unnoticed because you make things look easy and people often believe you’re invincible to life’s stresses. Considering you know more than a thing or two when it comes to helping others, it puzzles you that you’re now in a position where you can’t help yourself.

You know it’s not a lack of knowledge, a lack of desire, or a lack of time that’s holding you back. At this stage, you’re too tired to think, let alone try to solve everything on your own. What’s worse is your closest relationships with those you care most about are beginning to suffer. That’s because you have nothing left to give and you feel too ashamed to admit to defeat. And now you’re stuck.

Can I Help? Here’s the Truth:

Helpers need help too.

You can’t help others unless you help yourself first.

Only when you help yourself can you truly be there for those you care most about.

What stops you from getting help is your fear of being seen as a failed hero. Deep down, you know you’re fighting with yourself. Until you get to the heart of your insecurities and self-doubt, it’s likely you’ll continue feeling physically drained and emotionally vulnerable.

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Nor is it selfish. You shouldn’t have to feel guilty for making time for your mental health.

Your wellbeing is worth it.

Your Mental Health is #1. Get the Care and Helping You Need.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired, you’re now ready to make a change. You’ve come to the right place if you’re serious about your self-care and you’re willing to put in the work. This time, for yourself.

 

Imagine a life where . . .  

You wake up refreshed and full of energy.

Free from unnecessary stress and worry, your mind is clear and more focused than ever. With a renewed sense of purpose, you soar through the day – accomplishing your goals and having time left over to spend with your loved ones.

You feel strong from the inside out.

You can finally take off the heavy, protective armour that’s kept you strong on the outside all these years because you’ve healed the deeper wounds inside. With your new level of self-awareness and self-acceptance, you are much stronger and more resilient to withstand whatever life throws at you.

You can be unapologetically you.

Having made peace with your inner critic, you no longer worry if what you do or what you say is good enough. You no longer need to pretend. You’re comfortable with saying “no” and expressing what’s on your mind without fear of judgement. You feel totally free to be yourself.

I'm learning to be my own version of me -
not who other people want me to be.

#learningfromthepatient

@ytherapyuk

For the first time I'm noticing how
I'm thinking differently about myself and other people.
This feeling is so freeing!

#learningfromthepatient

@ytherapyuk

When I put in the work and make changes on the inside,
changes I make on the outside somehow become effortless.

It's time I put myself first!
