Be Your Own Therapist
How can we support our own emotional health?
Many of us struggle to cope with challenges and stress in our lives. We often neglect to make time for ourselves and end up getting stuck in our worries and unhelpful habits.
At this special event, bestselling author Owen O'Kane will share his unique insights - as a psychotherapist and NHS Clinical Lead - to help you achieve better mental health. He'll explain how you can be your own therapist, using simple techniques to find healthier perspectives and ditch harmful thought patterns.
Owen's work draws on the latest evidence-based techniques from a range of therapies including CBT, mindfulness and interpersonal therapy. He offers empowering solutions for overcoming the things that keep us stuck, so we can move forward.
This is a chance to learn some of the fundamentals of therapy and how to apply these to your own life. You'll discover how targeted tasks - that only take 10 minutes a day - can help you get more out of life and manage better in tough times.
This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on the 21st June 2023.
