Understanding the Dangers of Smoking

Smoking, a widespread habit primarily due to nicotine's addictive properties, poses severe health risks, including various cancers, heart disease, and respiratory conditions like COPD. Nicotine addiction leads to physical and psychological dependence, making quitting challenging due to withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, cravings, and anxiety. The habit also incurs significant social and economic costs, affecting relationships and leading to higher healthcare expenses. Despite these challenges, many smokers manage to quit through support, smoking cessation programs, and nicotine replacement therapies, improving their overall health and well-being.

Comments Marlih Jung BJ is a highly skilled trauma councillor, What you need to know about trauma. To release trauma, one must acknowledge it first. Seek professional help if needed. Express emotions through therapy. Time and patience are essential for healing and recovery. Trauma therapy is a specialized approach to help individuals heal from emotional wounds. It employs evidence-based techniques to address trauma's impact. Skilled therapists provide a safe space for processing emotions and building resilience, promoting recovery and improved mental health. Wishing BJ much success in her new Centre.

BJ has an extensive knowledge of trauma and it's impacts on the brain and the body. I had not heard of brainspotting prior to making my first appointment, and honestly I was sceptical of it, but needed help with trauma.  BJ created a safe and supportive environment that allowed me to explore my thoughts and feelings without judgment, or trying to intellectualise them. What impressed me the most was the tangible impact of brainspotting. It is so different to other kinds of therapy, you don't sit and talk about traumatic events, it lets your brain process it. After a few sessions things got a bit better. Now 6 months in and my ability to deal with triggers and to emotionally regulate has improved beyond measure, am very grateful.

Choosing BJ as the therapist to help me work through my anxiety and childhood trauma has been the best decision I've made all year. She's caring, has always validated my emotions and helps me work through them with the use of brain spotting. I really can't thank BJ enough. I feel like a different person, all for the better! If you're wanting to start that scary journey of healing trauma, I would highly recommend choosing BJ ❤️

BJ is very skilled in her approach. I appreciated being affirmed, having emotions validated and the explanation of how those emotions can manifest in a physical expression.
