Therapy is about change. Whether it is something that has happened to you or something you want to change in your life. One of the aims of therapy is to bring you back to you.
Therapy done well, should be gentle and afterwards I hope that you will have a sense of feeling more empowered.
Nutrients for Mental Health
Change and personal evolution is best achieved using a balance of talk therapy and nutrition.
Anxiety, depression and trauma all cause changes not only in the brain but all over the body. Shock and long-term stress deplete magnesium , zinc and B vitamins.
It makes sense to work with the body in a holistic way. To give you the best chance of successful therapy and recovery.
Benita uses a wide range of resources to create a personalised plan for each client. Including questionnaires which assess neurotransmitter balance and specific Amino acid protocols.
Working with anxiety, depression and teen brain development is a specialty of this practice.
Therapy for Change is Different
Talking about your emotions or even lack of feelings can be an unusual process for some people. Sometimes people feel scared to open up, please try not to worry. At our first session you will learn new healthy ways of managing overwhelm and upset. This is the main skill of therapy for change from Benita Scott.
Therapy shouldn’t have to hurt, emotions once heard or seen often feel lighter and freer. Your emotional self is intriniscally involved with every aspect of you including your physicality, motivation, health and self-compassion.
