Strategies to help you cope with continued uncertainty and how to ask for help – with Dr Bear

In this episode Dr bear and Jon discuss strategies to help you cope with continued uncertainty.  From strategies to help you cope with anxiety, to skills which can help you create boundaries for your own self care.  Dr Bear and Jon also discuss the steps you can go through when you maybe having a wobble – from finding some you trust to talk to or going to you GP.  However bad you may feel the most important thing is to talk to someone.  Dr Bear recommends the following steps if you are in a bit of pickle and feel stuck;

  1.  Find someone you trust and talk to them about how you are feeling – you don’t have to tell them everything, just test them with a  small amount of information first and see how it goes.  
  2. If you don’t feel you have anyone to talk to or it hasn’t helped, then talk to your GP or seek private help through a qualified health professional.
