“Helping you gain control over the things you want to change”
This year my book on how to survive sexual harassment will be published. It is based on my experiences of working with many, many clients who have gone through difficult and traumatic experiences of sexual harassment and attack and want to come out the other side and live good, happy and fulfilled lives. I now know a lot about this area. I know that the majority of people respond similarly when they suffer unwanted sexual attention, especially at work. When I read about famous men accused of abuse,
I keep a close eye on developments in the world of mental health and improving emotional wellness and Tweet and Facebook regularly. Here are some of the best things around at the moment. Posted by me in the last month. Feel free to share!

It’s no surprise to see a number of anxious parents wanting to see me. It is that time of year as another generation gets ready to go away to university and away from home for the first time.

Blog on future proofing our mental health. We all experience ups and downs and pressures in life, and there is increasing evidence that these ups and downs impact on our working lives as well. Several organisations have begun recently to look at how our personal concerns impact on life at work and vice versa.
Social media: paid influencers experiencing mental health problems and this should be a warning to us all
I have been tweeting recently (@fionanicolson3) about the increasing research on how social media is damaging the mental health of young people, especially girls. The constant competition, the chasing of shares and likes of posts and pictures and the exposure to other people’s seemingly perfect lives are causing harm.
Things have recently changed, and at last women who suffer mental health problems following a traumatic birth are starting to get more help. Post-natal PTSD or birth trauma is beginning to be recognised, understood and talked about.

This is what traumatic memory looks like, and it can be overcome. If you have any concerns, or if you are finding things overwhelming at the moment, then please contact me.
Seasons change and we change too: how to stay happy throughout the year.
One of the many things I really love about my work is how engaged my clients become in the work that we do. So many of you are very interested in the recent development of new techniques and tools to help with mental distress.
