Thank you for offering me this therapy, for continuing to support me even when I was stubborn and for not letting me give up. Thank you for believing in me, providing me with a safe place for sharing my emotions and dealing with my fears.”

Welcome to Select Healthy Mind Psychotherapy
All of us both young and old suffer difficult moments in our lives when we have find ourselves under seemingly unbearable amounts of stress, confusion and loss of purpose and direction…trapped often in what feels like a never ending cycle of despair where increasingly anxiety takes a grip and deters us from living life the way we want it to be. Days become a struggle rather than a joy and we lose sight of the way ahead and control over our thoughts and emotions.
Of course, it’s completely normal to experience ‘mood fluctuations’ and ‘bad days’… but when distressing patterns begin to take hold -
If you feel you are or a loved one is at one of these crossroads in life and are in need of that help, I'm glad that you have found our website. Select Healthy Mind was created to act as a bridge to help lead you over to the other side away from these problems to a brighter more satisfying future. I invite you to take that first step on that journey forward and to let the process of healing finally begin.
