Why do we need to wait until things are falling apart to access help? It is ok not to be ok! PsychMeUp is a resource for people who want to work on themselves and identify their difficulties, to ultimately live a more successful and fulfilled life.
I am an accredited Psychological therapist with degrees from Oxford Brookes University and University College London. I have extensive clinical experience and qualifications working in different therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, mindfulness and more. Working with different client groups in the NHS, ranging from adults with common mental health concerns, to children with physical health concerns like type 1 diabetes and cancer, it has become clear to me that we can all do something to improve our mental wellbeing.
I am passionate about reducing the stigma of mental health and making services feel personal and accessible. Our world has evolved into a sharing community, with social media. We talk, share private thoughts and images with friends, family and even strangers. Yet, we still find ourselves searching for answers. Seeking help makes perfect sense, to maximise our potential.
In order to be the best parents, the best teachers, the best care workers… we need to invest time to work on ourselves.
I began to think:
“We read self-help books and feel inspired but what comes next?”
At PsychMeUp, we have the answer. Our easy-to-use training plan is designed to read like a book capturing your attention in the same way. It offers activities to take steps into developing yourself. And, we have split the chapters up by months to allow you enough time to pay attention and actualise the benefits of that area of your life.
My brother and I developed this website during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. We were sat talking when I turned to him and said,
“Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was an online platform where people could access resources to increase resilience and come together in difficult times to avoid longer-term consequences for their mental health?”
– My brother simply said the way only a brother could
“So what are you waiting for…”
Our vision hoped to be a way for family and friends to combat the everyday difficulties of life. It combines life experiences, with experience working with clients in the NHS, to help you grow into a more resilient version of yourself. We decided to open this support to you so that you can become part of our growing community and face difficult times together.
Our vision comes from a desire to empower self-growth, self-fulfillment and ultimate peace of mind.
We’ve got you and you can do this!
