Make Mental Health your biggest priority.

Making your Mental Health a priority

We hear statements like this often, but do we let it go in one ear and out the other? Do we do something about it? We hear, too often than not, that it is only when people have breakdowns or burnouts that they make the shift and decide to make themselves a priority and get some much-needed help. But we could all use some guidance and mental health awareness.

How word of mouth influences us

For each of us, it is different: different lives equal different strategies and different therapies. There isn’t a one size fits all approach and certainly not a one-person fixes every problem approach. We all know the famous ‘word of mouth’ marketing strategy and wow – it certainly is an incredible tool and amazing phenomenon. You see Christiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney wearing Nike shoes – well they are now on your Christmas list. I see influencers all the time on my socials and I think, “I want that too.” Gosh, I think kids must be the best market of all, my boys are constantly telling me they watched some gamer wearing something, and now they would like it too.

A prime example is the Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, a Netflix Documentary and international scandal. A group of influencers were commissioned and paid to advertise a music festival which went viral and thousands of tickets were sold but nothing promised materialized. It was a giant fail and yet an initial success purely because of the power of influence. Is the same true about therapy?

Therapy works

So, have you heard from a friend that therapy works? As a result of all of us being different, some people talk about matters close to their heart and others don’t. So maybe those around you speak about the power of therapy, but maybe they don’t. Whatever the chatter is, the world has changed; people have changed with it and research shows that therapy works. Best of all there is a therapy for everything and a therapist for everyone. The key is knowing which works for you.

Getting help of any form, be it: mental health, or wellness, is a personal journey and an important journey on which to embark. Sometimes our mental health is in dire straits and needs intensive psychology, psychiatry, behavioural therapy, and psychotherapy. Other times we have picked up bad mental habits, incorrect mindsets and toxic thinking patterns and need to be counselled, guided, and coached through life’s challenges and hurdles. We all experience life circumstances, whether it’s trauma, offense and anger issues, abuse, relationship deterioration and many more, they all have a therapy, a process and end solutions.

The key is which Mental Health strategy will work for you

The key is finding the right one for you, the right mental health direction and mental health counsellor or coach. The stigma that has hung over mental health is changing and lifting daily, especially now, during these Covid-19 times; all of us are affected and all of us are having to navigate these stressful, unknown waters. Now more than ever, mental health is making a name for itself and that name is “We are here to help.” “We are here to stay.” Your Mental Health Awareness is not just a good idea, it is a life-changing priority. So then, make that leap, ask around, do some research. Make mental health your priority. Become your best self, happy, at peace, living your God-given purpose.

Connectable Life is here to help you find the therapy that will work for you and the suitable professional that you can journey with. Making Your Mental Health Your Biggest Priority.

Sugar and health, understanding insulin in the body
Stacey Spilsbury

My passion is people and healing! My purpose is to help as many people as I can, and normalize therapy of all forms. My journey hasn't always been an easy one; as a child, I was diagnosed with a number of learning disabilities, which meant many hours of therapy. Of which I will always be grateful for. I went on to study marketing and business, during this time, I went through a massive life change. Questioning every decision I had made up to that point, which led me onto a road of self-discovery, church and the bible. Losing 25kg and exploring a new way of doing life, I grew some wings and explored the world. Spending a couple of years working in the sales department for an 'off-plan property investment company', in London. Afterwhich coming back to South Africa to marry the man of my youth, where we now share in the joy of raising our crazy brood of 4 little boys on a farm in rural South Africa. After a series of life events, and seeking the counsel of a therapist in order to find my own personal healing. This journey, leading me to pick up the books again and study, Career Guidance Counselling. All of this helped propel my passion of Mental Health and Physical Wellness. It was through a conversation, in 2019, with my darling friend Jess, in which we hatched up the concept of 'Online Therapy of all forms - Mind, Body and Wellness.' At this point, it had not been done before, and therefore we couldn't walk away. This is where it started, we co-founded and now co-own Connectable Life- making mental health and wellness easy, accessible and stigma-free. Our goal is to make, 'the therapy space,' accessible to all who need it. Highlighting the power of healing for everyone, wellness over illness.
