Mental – Ask for Support

Some people are good at dealing with feelings. This can help us feel comforted. Others are good at helping out, like babysitting or grocery shopping. This can help us manage the day-to-day responsibilities. Some people are good at sharing a different point of view, and this can help us look at problems more realistically. Perhaps open us up to a new perspective.

Some people are good at sharing information which helps with finding better solutions.

Most of us have networks of different people which may . include family members, friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbours and other significant people. Asking for help is always the first step. It takes courage and a willingness to be vulnerable to admit that things are not going well but it’s the bridge to building greater connections reducing those feelings of isolation and aloneness. Others cannot help you if they do not know what you need.

Or consider joining a support group if your inner circle may not be the ideal place to go for support. Local community councils can be a good starting point for information on the various support groups available in your area. And, groups are an excellent way to find help for a specific problem. And, consider letting go of bad relationships. Some people in your network might not support you. It is hard, but sometimes we need to let go of these people in order to move forward.

Ask for Help and Support

Asking for help is a sign of strength and not weakness.

The people in our lives contribute significantly to our own mental health. We help each other out, share the good times, and learn from each other. Connecting with others, building social networks are a big part of our overall mental health. And, ideally it is our social networks that we can go to when we are feeling overwhelmed and in need of a helping hand.

It is the people we are close too who will be there when times are tough to help support us. These are the people who celebrate our successes and help us deal with problems. There are many different ways we can help each other, and understanding the different capacities that friends and family offer is a good way to break up what you need in bite size pieces and build a support group.

Anne is amazing, TRTP has changed my entire outlook on life, how I interact with people, and what I’m doing. In the few months since TRTP my life has honestly changed so much for the better, it’s beyond what I could have ever imagined. My friends and family are also noticing it! And amazingly, every day gets better. Thank you so much Anne!

TRTP has completely changed the way I think about myself and the world around me. The changes have been extraordinary in such a short space of time. I suddenly find myself walking forward with a new set of positive core beliefs which others are noticing on a daily basis Anne supported me through the process with expertise, compassion and patience. TRTP really does offer you a new launch pad from which to embark on a new journey. I’m so grateful for having this opportunity to do this work with Anne

I had been struggling with life and reliving my trauma for over 20 years, I tried everything and nothing worked. Finally I was referred to Anne, who took me through The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) as that is the process that helped shift the past and get you to a better place.  Words cannot express how she turned my life completely around. For once, I am actually excited about life, I am actually thinking about my future. I feel like my life has been reset, I have a second chance and I am developing my life the way I want it to be, rather than the influences I was brought up with. Anne, I am indebted to you, thank you so much.

I recently visited Anne Serry because I was told to do a anger management course. I’m am happy to say that Anne help me and I am grateful. Anne also learns about your life digging so deep into the family and finding the right solution to help you through your problems. Enough said call her if you are experiencing bad habits or bad issues, she will break them down and help you solve your own problems. Thank you very much Anne Serry! I will defiantly call you if I have any other problems God bless

Completing The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) with Anne has helped me profoundly. I feel free and less anxious around matters that used to overwhelm me, and my day-to-day experience is calmer and much less reactive. I can't thank Anne enough for this life-enhancing process!

Anne took me through the step by step process of TRTP. It has completely resolved all my traumatic experiences that I haven’t been able to do by just talking to a professional . It’s a very powerful therapy that has changed my life . I can now be the happy positive person that I’m meant to be 😊😊
