How To Respond Effectively To The Corona Crisis
As we all come to terms with living in the COVID-19 era, we need to find our own ways of dealing with the fear, anxiety and worry that this brings to us all.
A helpful video FACE COVID – How To Respond Effectively To The Corona Crisis and accompanying fact sheet have been produced by Dr Russ Harris, author of the international best-seller The Happiness Trap. These set out how to use ACT (acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to deal with the Corona crisis and its impact on our health and wellbeing.
Another helpful approach is set out in the help sheet The Rock and the Play-doh.
If you live in Gloucestershire and are aged 9-21, you can get support from our TIC+ counsellors. Although our Face-To-Face service is currently suspended, you can still get support and counselling online and through video and 1-2-1 text chat .
TIC+ works hard at raising funds so they can arrange for a counsellor to see you for free, all you need to do is call us on 01594 372777 or text us on 07520 634063 to arrange an appointment. We know it can be hard to take that first step but, like the other young people we’ve helped, you’ll be so glad you did.
If you need to speak to someone urgently, call Childline on 0800 1111, NHS 111 (on 111) or the Samaritans on 116 123. There’s always someone there to help, and any conversations you have with them are confidential.
