Going for Online Therapists

*Collaborative post.

I am passionate about mental health and I think a lot more needs to be said about it. Many of us shy from talking about any sort of mental health challenges we may be facing, and we shouldn’t. I believe talking helps, and the more we talk about our mental health, the more others will talk about theirs. Hopefully all the talking helps get rid of the stigma that is still associated with mental health issues. If you are having mental health problems and you are thinking of getting some form of help, you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of information you find. It can be tricky to decide on where to start and how to go about getting help.

What is online therapy?

Online therapy is the provision of mental health counselling via the Internet.  Therapists use many different mediums such as apps for texting, video chatting, voice messaging and audio messaging to provide this service to their patients. Online therapy can occur in real-time, such as in phone conversations and online chat rooms. It can also occur in a time-delayed format, such as through email messages and text messages.

 

Why online therapy?

There are now opportunities to get in touch with therapists online, rather than the traditional way. So if the thought of meeting a therapist one on one is too much, you can now opt for having the meeting online. Millions of people opt for online therapy because it is convenient. You can speak to your therapist from the comfort of your home via your laptop or phone.

Another important reason why many people now go for online therapy is so they are not limited to only therapists in their area. They can pick a therapist from anywhere in the world and they can also get privacy as no one will see them go into an actual office. This is very important if you want to keep your treatment private.

Is online therapy replacing traditional therapy?

I don’t believe online therapy is out to replace traditional therapy, but I think it is taking over gradually. The reason why it is starting to take over is thanks to the online based society we now live in. At the end of the day, it is opt to you to decide on what sort of therapy/counselling you need. If online counselling works better for you, then by all means go for that. I think it is great we now have options for getting help with our mental health, and it is good to know online therapy for those who prefer that. You can find a list of therapists here.

 

The future

Online therapy is here to stay and I am pleased this option is now available. I think it is a great way to get help/counselling. It is very convenient and accessible, and there are lots of options available. I believe it is comforting to know that we don’t have to leave the house to speak a counsellor or therapist.

So You Want To Be A Reputable Journalist?

*Collaborative post.

When you want to become a journalist, it’s safe to say that you’re never really going to want to be any old writer. You want to be successful, well-known, and great at your job too. And more importantly, you want to be reputable. A reputable journalist is famous for being good at their job. Here’s how you can do it.

 

Learn The Ropes

 To start with, you’re going to want to learn the ropes as much as you can – and as quickly as you can. When you graduate from college, get an internship – or even while you’re at college. A summer job would be great too. Even when you get your first job, learning the ropes is important, so that you can begin to establish yourself in the right ways.

 

Practice Your Craft

But then also, you need to dedicate yourself to this. It’s really not just enough for you to learn in college and then never look at a piece or writing education ever again. The best writers are those that are constantly learning. So make sure that you’re reading leading work, and that you’re practicing your craft constantly too. Practice makes perfect! Never forget that. 

 

Avoid Fake News

Finally, as tempting as it can be to get suckered in by different news articles and sensationalism. But if you know that you want to be a reputable journalist, then you just cannot get sucked in by it all. Instead, you have to make sure that you’re picking out fake news, as seen in the infographic below, and aiming to make your work a lot better. This will make sure that your career is not only successful but rewarding too. Reporting fake news never ends well. Don’t be tempted no matter what.

The ultimate colour guide for your home decor

*Collaborative post.

 Is your home looking a bit drab and dreary? If so, you might want to consider changing up the colour scheme to brighten up and bring some life back into your living space. Choosing colours for your interior can be a difficult job, as you need to make sure you pick the right shades to maximise and enhance the look of your home.

To enable you to select the right colour palettes, you should take a look at this guide which will make the decorating process much easier.

 

Neutral shades

One of the most popular interior palettes is definitely neutral shades like white, beige, ivory, nude, grey and more, which are popularly used in plenty of modern spaces. These colours can be used to decorate the whole room, or as base layers to compliment brighter shades. You can use variations of these colours in any room of your home, although the living room and dining room are more synonymous with these shades, as these areas of the house are seen as neutral ground.

Property companies like RW Invest have embraced the all-natural look in their offerings by using light-coloured neutrals like white and ivory to create contemporary style apartments. These attract a wide range of tenants, although they are especially popular with young professionals who prefer modern and airy city-centre apartments.

 

 

 

Pastel palettes

If you want to lighten up your space, especially now the summer months are in play, you should take a look at soft some pastel colours. This could include hues of baby blue, light pink, peach, lime and more. You could start small by introducing pastel-coloured cushions or ornaments, which will add character to any room in your home.

Pastel shades work well in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, where you can update your neutral-style cabinets with blue and green hues. This is not only a great way to enhance your property but is also a much more eco-friendly solution, as you can avoid throwing out a good piece of furniture. By using the colours, you can also make even the smallest kitchen look spacious, which is every homeowner’s dream. This is also a great way to update a more traditional style kitchen, as the lighter palettes will create a more modern feel.

Bold hues

 If you really want to brighten up your home, you should go bold with shades of purple, yellow, or even red. These colours are perfect for rented apartments which tend to look like show homes, as adding a brighter shade will make your home more personalised. Some landlords do not allow walls to be painted, so if this is the case, you can purchase furnishings and ornaments that will enhance even the most drab-looking room.

Using a bright colour like yellow may seem daring and should not be used in just any room, as it can appear overpowering.Yellow works well in a breakfast room, where you can start your day on a high with striking decor. Try to avoid using this colour in the bedroom, as this an energising colour which may work well in the morning but not so good at night when you need a good night’s rest.
