Life is not something that just overcomes you. Our moods naturally wax and wane, because it’s the way we are meant to be. As soon as we understand how the mind works, it becomes obvious why we all suffer from bouts of unhappiness, anxiety, stress and irritability from time to time. Through psychological counselling and mindfulness you can learn to break the circle of unhappiness and exhaustion, so you can develop a genuine feeling of wellbeing: the kind of happiness that gets into your bones and allows you to meet the issues of life with new courage.
