How will therapy make me feel?

Therapy is a very personal process. Sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions, so you may go through a period of feeling worse than when you started. However, therapy should enable you to feel better in the long-run.

If you do experience a period of feeling worse, talk to your therapist about it to ensure you get the best out of your therapy.

Depressions Dangerous Secret

Depressions Dangerous Secret

A new study which is the first of its kind has been published this week, which looked at the state of Mental Health among airline pilots, the study was carried out by Harvard’s Public Health School after Andreas Lubitz steering of the Germanwings flight into the French Alps.

The results of the study found that one in seven pilots suffer depression, with pilots aged in their forties being at most risk, the reality of this means that a worrying 14% of pilots reach the threshold of for clinical depression, reporting symptoms such as suicidal thoughts, trouble with concentration and feelings of failure.

One of the most worrying facts which the research uncovered was that there is a veil of secrecy being drawn over pilot’s mental health. This can of course can not only lead to disaster for the pilots concerned but can even lead to tragic events such as the one in the French Alps last year. Although this particular study only covered one profession the veil of secrecy isn’t something which is confined to pilots.

Many people who suffer with depression from a wide variety of professions feel compelled to keep it to themselves, with many failing to seek help as they fear that in doing so it will affect their long-term career prospects. At One Stop Psychotherapy, we want to do all we can to lift that veil   and as long term and committed supporters of the stamp out stigma campaign we believe more can and should be done to offer support to those who are in need.

There are many people working in high risk environments where maintaining good Mental health can be a challenge, the Police, Armed forces, Medical, Aviation in fact any job at all where pressure to succeed is high or where lifesaving decisions are being made on a daily basis. The fact is that it is all of our responsibilities to ensure the  good mental wellbeing of those who ensure that we live our lives in safety, we cannot and should not expect them to deliver the important work they do alone and without support.

With this in mind we would like to invite you all to join us in being vocal about stamping out the stigma of Mental Health, you can start by sharing this and other stories and by joining us on Facebook and twitter to spread the word, no person should be left to feel isolated and alone when dealing with any form of mental health problem, it’s the very essence of why TOSPS.com was formed, so that there would always be a place people can go 24/7 to seek help and assistance.

The Law of Attraction - in Easy Terms


Aside from therapeutic interventions, there are some powerful personal development tools and techniques you can learn to enhance your wellbeing.

One of them is the Law Of Attraction. People refer to the phenomenon of Law of Attraction in different ways, such as; Fate, Synchronicity, Karma or Serendipity. Essentially, The Law of Attraction teaches that in order to manifest a desire, you must first achieve the vibration of that desire. When say or think about something good it makes you feel good = positive vibration.

“You attract into your life and business, whatever you give your focus and attention to – either positive or negative”.

Your thoughts and feelings (or a mood) create vibrational Energy = activity. This is because you are connected to all the energy in the universe by your very existence. All the thoughts we think and actions you take affect something else. We are all affected by each other.

You are like a human magnet and the energy you have released (negative or positive) immediately attracts other vibrational energy that is the same “like attracts like”. And as that energy gathers more energy like itself, it keeps growing and gaining momentum. This momentum causes events and opportunities to show up in your life that are related to your thoughts and feelings, because the energy of those events and opportunities that are showing up is attracted to what you are thinking, feeling or doing.

If you consistently allow yourself to experience negative thoughts and feelings, then negative situations will arise in your life. If you consistently allow yourself to experience positive thoughts and feelings, that is what will come into your life by way of opportunities for you to act upon.

“The Law of Attraction can be described as the law of vibrational energy”!

Positive thought/feeling → energy → more energy → opportunity → positive action → harmony

Negative thought/feeling → energy → more energy → event → lack of positive action → discord


The Law of Attraction is constantly working to attract either negative things or positive things you’re your life. It doesn’t matter whether you believe it or not, it’s just a scientific fact.

When you combine Law of Attraction coaching with personal development and hypnosis you can change the limiting beliefs and unwanted negative subconscious habits that are holding you back.

Just imagine if you could attract “less of what you DON’T want, and more of what you DO want!
