Anxiety: how to support the one you Love

I am a Mother who has given up her professional life as a teacher to support her son who sunk into deep anxiety and depression that became disabling and life threatening. it affected the whole family and strained every relationship.

The path we have taken has been very different to the lives many others live. It is no more right or wrong than anyone elses. The path from severe anxiety to heath is multi-faceted, including medication, psychological therapy, physical therapy, and lots of time. My main focus though is the spaces in between the treatments, what we as parents, carers, friends and supporters can do that supports and provides a safe environment that encourages the person back into life without pushing and without expectations.  

I chose to write this blog to pass on simple ideas that supported my son through his experience and offer them as ideas for others to try. 



About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.
