Anxiety and Depression In Teenagers

I had a teenage girl see me today. She is suffering from anxiety and depression and is only 14.

Why? Because the other girls at school exclude her. She tries to fit in by wearing make-up and acting the way do around them, even though she hates how they act.

No-one has taught the child to value herself and that she does not neeed the acceptance of others. We are working on strategies so that my client can recognise the good things about her and be confident that these are enough.

 

She left today believing that she is a kind person. We achieved a lot.

 

Build your daughters up. Give them power.

2012 Olympic Games

Well the UK is certainly dazzling the world with its Games but I wonder deep inside if the money spent is not a great travesty.

In these times of economic misery should we really be pouring tens of millions of dollars into an event that really has no lasting benefit?

The UK is close to the Eurppean nightmare of Greece and Spain but seems largely unaffected and unworried.

 

I also wonder whether it is fair that only the rich nations can afford to field large teams whereas the poorer, developing nations bring a team you can count on one hand.

 

The 2012 Olymic Games bother me and not for a good reason.
