A new remedy for winter and summer
We’re happy to be working with Colin Smith, Natural Health Practitioner from Ferns, whom many of you will have heard on South East Radio where he does a regular natural health spot. Resulting from many years of his own practice Colin has brought a remarkable range of health supplements aimed at general and, in particular cardiovascular, health to the market and here’s Colin’s own summing up of their benefits. Colin will be in Only Natural to introduce and sample his range on the 23rd and 24th of November so be sure to come in for a chat with him if you have any issues which he might be able to help you with on one of these days.

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change and overcome problems in desired ways. Psychotherapy aims to increase each individual’s well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviours, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social functioning.
This definition of the work of a psychotherapist shows just how fundamental the role is, to offer professional help when our emotional or mental processes are acting against our own best interests. Life throws challenges in everyone’s path and there are times for all of us when the ‘mirror’ that a skilled therapist can help us to look into can be a big part of the healing process. That’s what friends are for I hear you say and, while I don’t doubt that our friends are central to our ‘support network’ and that friendships are vital for our emotional health, there are also times and issues which need the trained approach of the therapist.
Which is where psychotherapist, Mary Moran comes in – this is Mary’s own description of her role:
I’m Mary and I’ve been working as a psychotherapist and counsellor since 1997. I work with individuals and their problems and I also work with relationships and couple issues.
I trained in The Tivoli Institute in Dun Laoghaire and I’m accredited with The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I’m also a Registered General Nurse.
It’s from my nursing baseline that I began to learn and realise that the signs and symptoms manifesting in our bodies can often be symptomatic of an underlying cause. We all need to be listened to and heard. We, each and everyone has our story, our hurts, our fears and our individual thoughts about how life “should” be.
