Relationship Troubles? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy May Help!

CBT-3A lot of people, when they think about undergoing psychological therapy still think that this is something only for if  someone needs help with serious psychological disorders such as anxiety, PTSD, phobias or trauma. But nothing can be further from the truth. These days, modern forms of psychological therapy can also help with everyday issues like stress, low self-confidence and even relationship troubles.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is one of these forms of therapy that can help if you have relationship troubles and/or if your love life doesn’t go as well as you would like. So, what is cognitive behavioural therapy?

Cognitive behavioural therapy or short CBT is a type of psychosocial intervention for all kinds of mental disorders and problems. It differs greatly from traditional psychotherapy. In psychotherapy, it is most often about finding the causes for mental problems. A good example that this would be when the therapist is uncovering childhood trauma and abuse that may be at the root of problems. With Cognitive behavioural therapy, it is not so much about finding the causes for problems but it is a therapy that focuses on solving problems before anything else. It is therefore a proactive form of therapy where helping the patient has priority.

Although cognitive behavioural therapy can help with mental problems such as PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder or anxiety as well, it can also help with many other problems. People can get help with work-related stress, depression, sleeping problems, panic attacks were they can undergo therapy when they have relationship troubles.

In the United Kingdom, getting a good certified therapist is necessarily that easy. Getting a therapist via the public health care system NHS means that you can and choose a therapist you won’t also known advance about their qualifications. This is one reason why a private therapist can be a much better option. At Sex Therapy London you can find a wealth of helpful resources on how to find a good therapist in the United Kingdom.


Beard Oils: The Good and The Bad

If you wear a beard proudly like I do you will very quickly see that it requires a ton of maintenance and care. I would even go so far as to say that having a real nice,  well-kept beard requires a lot more care than most of the girl’s fancy hairstyles today.

well-kept beard – beard oilIt doesn’t take a lot for a beard to become really unsightly and unmanageable all at the same time.  But the good thing is that you can avoid this. As you can imagine, some products out there can help with that.

For anyone who wants to wear their beard in style, for all those guys who really want to make an impression I can highly recommend that you should look into beard oil.

Beard oil can help you to keep your beard looking great, it makes it smooth and manageable. If you use beard oil regularly, your beard will never have a chance to grow unsightly, it will always look classy and stylish no matter what beard you have!

The difference between a good and a bad beard oil

a bad beard oil, simply spoken is one where they use common chemical ingredients that can be harmful for your beard and/or skin. Some cheaper beard oils may even contain preservatives, artificial fragrances or dyes

A good beard oil is a beard oil that consists only of natural ingredients such as essential oils and scents. For me, this is very important since I really don’t want to put chemicals onto my beard and skin. I also do not like those beard oils where the scent is way tot intense for myself and those who are around me. (Ask my girlfriend, she hates some of the cheaper beard oils and their smell…)

Natural ingredients such as peppermint oil, lemon essential oils and so on can make your beard smell great plus they can help cool your skin and most importantly they do make your beard very soft.

This is why I recommend that you only get those beard oils where you know that what’s in them is all natural.

Cindy’s Wedding Reception

Cindy’s reception last month was definitely a blast. In fact, I might want to say it was probably the best reception I’ve ever been to!

I have to give probs to Cindy and Emilio, they really did an amazing job with selecting everything, from the great food and drink they had to the musical entertainment.

One of the best things and definitely one of the highlights of the party was when all the guys from a  security firm here in Torquay showed up for an amazing dance show. They did some pretty good Michael Jackson impersonations, absolutely awesome.

I took this also as a good opportunity to talk with some of the security guys because I am looking for some reliable door supervisors for some time already. I was not too happy with the last company I hired. We had some time to talk and I as really impressed with the guys.

We will meet next week again to talk things over. (So if you’re like me in the Torquay area and need some professionals for security in Torquay I can highly recommend them to you!)

Now, as you can imagine, I am already looking forward to Miriam’s reception in spring. She told me she wants to make her wedding at least as good as Cindy’s. Well, I am definitely looking forward to it!
