If you are struggling with any aspect of your mental health, please make an appointment to see one of our doctors. We will explore with you, the possible reasons for why you might be struggling. We will consider with you, what possible lifestyle changes you could make, which might help. We will discuss medication and counseling services. Every person is unique, as is everyone's mental health struggle. At Yew Medical Centre, we will take whatever time is necessary, to support you in getting back to yourself.
At Yew Medical Centre, we believe that mindfulness practices can provide us with the tools to look after our mental health. In our busy world we need to practice how to slow the mind down.
Mindfulness invites us to deliberately direct our attention to this moment within ourselves . Extensive evidence based research shows that mindfulness courses have a beneficial effect on our ability to cope with stress, boosts our immune system, enhanced ability to cope with chronic pain and illness and promotes a sense of wellbeing and satisfaction with life.
