Counselling Service Launches EBook Aimed At Reducing Stigma

NEWMARKET, England, July 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mind Mechanics - The Mindfulness Compendium  

Following the acid test of providing free - over 500 downloads of the 'rough' copy compilation of blogs attributed to Anglia Counselling's website, It was decided reasonable to have a paid for version of the most popular blogs formatted, tidied up, re-edited, proofed and made available across all major e-readers, via SmashWords.

No small time commitment was involved, as those who have published before will already know, but highly satisfying in the end, a great learning experience to add to the tapestry of life!

Business owner and counsellor, Bob Brotchie started writing initially to help him reflect on his learning and experiences with clients and what challenges they bring to his private practice, as well as those from his own life experiences and observations.

Whilst raising service awareness, Brotchie says he is attempting to reduce the stigma often attached to psychological ill health, and which really is mostly attributable to misunderstandings, ignorance leading to fear, fear of being seen as a failure, or as a social pariah - and with good reason.

Discrimination is still rife, that is the sad reality. The positive is that 'we', as a society are finally beginning to see the fruits of the ongoing availability of information, and are better informed about what mental health, good and less so, looks like.

Brotchie said, "I want people who are suffering, and those who are yet to, to be aware of what the clients counselling room and environment literally looks like.

I wanted to reassure current and future service users of some of the options available, and what they mean, such as found with general counselling, psychotherapy or cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) - and what it can be like seeing a counsellor."

These observations are true of life and will resonate with most. Covering relationships at home and of the workplace, and of the pain felt in depression and anxiety. Of stress management and the effects before they are brought back into balance; of addictions - and facing death or bereavement.
