  • TED Talk: How to stop feeling anxious about anxiety | Tim Box (2019)
    • Tim Box is a therapist, author and anxiety expert, and in his youth experienced debilitating levels of social anxiety. Tim has spent a large part of the last 10 years helping people understand and control their anxiety response and at some point during the last decade he started to get the distinct impression that most people dealing with anxiety were thinking about it in entirely the wrong way. In this talk Tim explains why we need to think about anxiety differently, why the help we are being offered often exacerbates the problem, and how a very simple shift in the way we think about our own emotional responses can free us from our diagnoses and help us all feel a lot less anxious about anxiety.

  • The Relationship Between Burnout, Depression, and Anxiety: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis | Panagiota Koutsimani, Anthony Montgomery & Katerina Georganta (2019)
    • Burnout is a psychological syndrome characterized by emotional exhaustion, feelings of cynicism and reduced personal accomplishment. In the past years there has been disagreement on whether burnout and depression are the same or different constructs, as they appear to share some common features. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the relationship between burnout and depression. Additionally, given that burnout is the result of chronic stress and that working environments can often trigger anxious reactions, it also investigated the relationship between burnout and anxiety. Results: Our results showed a significant association between burnout and depression and burnout and anxiety.

What we can learn from failure

Written by Danjela Falzon
We live in a society where being successful or ‘being the best’ is given enormous value. From a young age we’re taught to aim for the highest grades, to do well at sport, and that winning or achieving will earn us admiration and respect. We often internalise the message that failure is to be avoided at all costs, often experienced as shameful, humiliating or as a blow to our self-worth. Howe…

That’s not so surprising considering how quickly our reality seems to have changed from one moment to the next. We’re suddenly shrouded in a great deal of uncertainty and faced with a barrage of news reporting an ever-changing reality. Not only is there uncertainty about Covid-19 it…

The key to happiness and fulfilment – Cherish the present

Written by Maria Mifsud
We live in a hyper-busy world, where our pace of life is always frantic. Our minds are constantly occupied and we are forever up to something. With that in mind, I would like you, the reader, to take a moment and think about the last time that you did nothing – just 10 minutes doing absolutely nothing. And when I say nothing, I really do mean nothing. Therefore, no emailing, no texting, no inte…

The Fear of Missing Out – FOMO

Written by Danjela Falzon
The fear of missing out, otherwise known as FOMO, was officially added to the Oxford dictionary in 2013. A useless piece of trivia perhaps, or else an indication that whilst the ‘grass is always greener’ phenomena has always existed, recent years has seen the explosion of fear and anxiety related to not doing, having or being as much as others. FOMO relates to the fear and apprehension that ot…

The Downside of Perfectionism

Written by Danjela Falzon
As I sit in front of clients who are relentlessly self-critical, pushing themselves to achieve one goal after another and suffering from anxiety, burnout and other mental health issues, I feel compelled to support them to understand where their perfectionism is stemming from and how it’s impacting their lives.
