Yorkshire Life magazine teams up with The Retreat to highlight mental health issues

World Mental Health Day on 10 October will highlight the issues of mental health across the globe. This month The Retreat has joined up with Yorkshire Life magazine to publish an article on mental health, focusing on the experience of one of our clients, James. 

You can read all about James’ experience in the recently-published magazine, or find out more about how we can help with your mental health by visiting their online article here

What to do if you’re struggling with mental health difficulties

When a panic attack strikes, you’re feeling depressed or your anxiety is getting the better of you, do you know who to turn to?

For whatever reason, if you feel that you need help to improve your mental wellbeing, here’s our advice to start getting your life back on track.

Talk to an expert

The first step you should take is to talk to someone about what you’re experiencing. At The Retreat our skilled team of counsellors, psychologists and therapists will listen to you in a non-judgemental way in a private, confidential setting.
They can help you with your current difficulties, past experiences or anxieties about your future with the aim of helping you improve the quality of your life and relationships.

We pride ourselves on taking a compassionate and collaborative approach to helping people live well. In fact, we’ve been in the community for more than 200 years, offering support and hope to people struggling with mental health difficulties.

Find the right support which works for you

It’s important to remember that your treatment is your choice.

We provide care to people who refer themselves and those who are referred to us by GPs and other professionals, including employers in some cases. We work with you to enable you to recover and can often help when others can’t.

One person who believes The Retreat has done just that is James, who sought treatment when he hit a downward spiral, experiencing debilitating episodes of anxiety and becoming dependent on alcohol after a stressful family event.

In James’s case, after a personalised course of therapy, he was able to benefit from therapy sessions delivered via a secure video link. Thanks to this technology, fast, convenient and accessible therapy is now just a click away. Consultations with a psychologist can be organised at a time and place to suit you.

Our personalised approach is offered in a range of services and costs, whether that’s self-booked, face-to-face therapy, alongside video consultations via a secure link.

You’re not alone, we’re here to help

We specialise in tailored care which is effective and personalised to what you need. Our team is here to help you realise that you’re not alone and to help you see that there is hope.

Originally founded in 1796, we offer support and help for people with anxiety, depression, bereavement, anger, eating disorders, relationships, stress or trauma and also provide assessment and treatment services for autism and ADHD.
