Clonmel-based practice Inform Psychological Services will hold a free event, titled “The Inside Track on Mental Health”, in The Main Guard, Clonmel, Co Tipperary, on Friday, September 28th, 2018 from 4pm – 6pm. The event will mark the business’ fifth anniversary.
Event attendees will hear from guest speakers Dr. Maeve Martin, Founder and Clinical Director, Ms. Lindsay Fredman, Clinical Psychologist, Ms. Hilda Ryan, Personal and Professional Life Coach, Ms. Josephine Quinlan, Counselling Psychotherapist, and Dr. Ann Moriarty, Neuropsychologist, all from Inform Psychological Services. They will cover a range of topics, including psychological interventions for young people and adolescents, coaching, mindfulness and self-compassion, ageing, dementia and memory.
Speaking at the launch event, Dr. Maeve Martin said, “Throughout my career and especially during the past five years in my own practice, I have noticed a rise in the number of you people suffering from anxiety and depression; over 45% of the referrals to our service are between the ages of 13 and 24 years. Similarly, there is a sharp increase in parents bringing children as young as three for a variety of emotional and behavioural problems. Finally, apart from the assessment work we do, more and more adults present at our clinics who are struggling to cope with modern day work/home challenges causing chronic stress, sleep disturbances and addiction problems.”
“We are delighted to be in a unique position to help people as our team has different skillsets to suit a range of mental health challenges and illnesses. You don’t have to be sick to come to us, in fact early intervention can minimise stress and equip you with coping mechanisms to prevent the onset of stress-related illness. The event on September 28th is for everyone who would like to learn more about mental health, regardless of age as, like all illnesses, it doesn’t discriminate.” concluded Dr. Martin.
