6 Tips to take care of mental wellbeing during the pandemic
A return to how life was at the start of 2020 is some way off. Covid -19 has changed our daily lives in many ways and keeps straining our mental wellbeing. Throughout this pandemic, it is common to hear people experiencing high levels of  stress, anxiety, irritability and insecurity. The uncertainty and worries about the future disrupt our routines, our  lifestyles and mental health. But now more than ever it is important to look after our wellbeing .  Positive mental wellbeing can help you function well and cope better during times of change, and when things aren’t going well. Below you will find a few beneficial suggestions that will help you to maintain a sense of control over your life 1. Get some exercise every day Our physical health has a big impact on how we feel. At times like these, it can be easy to fall into unhealthy patterns of behaviour that end up making you feel worse. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water and exercise regularly.  2. Refer to reliable sources for information Make a regular habit of stepping away from your computer and smartphone from time to time. When returning online, focus on information from reputable sources – such as WHO,  GOV.UK or the NHS website – , not just sources in your social media feed. 3. Take time to relax Relaxing and getting enough rest is a must to maintain good mental health. Taking good care of yourself may require a little extra time and effort, but it’s worth it to improve your wellbeing. Try  these simple  relaxing techniques :  Using aromatherapy oil in the bath – a long, hot soak is good for mind and body. Read a magazine or a book in a comfy chair with a cup of tea or coffee Listen to soothing music. Practice mindful meditation.  Go for a stroll outside 4. Get good sleep Good-quality sleep makes a big difference to how we feel, so it\'s important to get enough. Try to maintain regular sleeping patterns and keep good sleep hygiene practices – like avoiding screens before bed, cutting back on caffeine and creating a restful environment. 5. Stay connected to others During times of stress, friends and families can be a good source of support. It is important to keep in touch with them and other people in your life. If you need to restrict your movements or self-isolate, try to stay connected to people in other ways, for example: e-mail social media video calls phone calls text messages 6. Talk about your worries It\'s normal to feel a bit worried, scared or helpless about the current situation. Remember: it is OK to share your concerns with others you trust – and doing so may help them too. Monitor yourself for symptoms of depression/stress disorder such as prolonged sadness, difficulty sleeping,feelings of hopelessness. Talk to a trusted friend or a family member.  If things are too difficult, remember you can always seek help. Know the people you need to contact if things get too difficult, be it a mental health service, your friends, relatives or your doctor. Not sure who to ask for support? Consider BAC online counselling services, a team of professional counsellors are ready to provide you the  guidance you need to heal and feel better.    It is okay not to be okay, and it is more than okay to get help when you need it.

What does a career coach do?
Career coaching is an industry that has grown exponentially in the last decade. The goal of career coaching is to empower professionals by helping them make informed decisions about their trajectory. It’s a solution-based approach to career decisions. Career coaching can be done at any point during the work life of a professional. A study published in The Guardian shows that  1 in 4 people in the UK is considering changing jobs. If 25 percent of people are considering changing jobs or career or sector then something must be going amiss! One of the main reasons for this change is identified as the real wages falling, as the cost of living rises. Career coaching can be the help people need to make this change in their lives.  What does a career coach do? A career coach helps you clarify the work you want to do and find the roles you’re looking for. A career coach does this by working with you to discover your underlying life purpose so you can find work that’s fulfilling and motivating. That means a career coach can suggest careers you might not have considered before and help you find satisfying work you’re aligned with. How is a career coach different from a career counsellor? Career counsellors and career coaches have unique approaches to helping clients. The main difference is in the approach each coach and counsellor takes. Career coaches Career coaches focus on the current situation and create action goals to help clients move forward. A career coach is similar to an athletic coach. They assess where you are and encourage/challenge you to become a better you.  They may focus on outcomes, results and accomplishments. Career Counsellors Career counsellors look at past experiences or barriers that may be causing work challenges. A career counsellor will assess your situation and subsequently detangle confusion or address the emotional reasons why you’re not making progress in your career – ending with a new direction. Is Career Coaching right for you? To receive career coaching, it is very important that you approach it with an open mind. Your mindset will influence the decisions you make at all levels, whether you are at a beginner level in your profession, management level, or leadership level. The mindset with which you approach coaching will determine the failure or success in your journey. People with a fixed mindset believe they are great at something or failure at something. They want to hide their shortcomings instead of addressing them. They stay in their comfort zone and don’t push themselves. When they fail, they get discouraged and go down the road of “I am a failure/loser.” People with a fixed mindset use common phrases like “this is who I am” or “I am not good enough.”  Coaching services can be worth every single penny spent. The career advice you receive from a qualified mentor can be a turning point in your life.   Beecholme Adult Care is proud to provide online career coaching services to help people lead a happier life. BAC makes coaching available for all and affordable!

Mental Health and BAME: How we can improve access to care?
Mental health and BAME In England and Wales, nearly a fifth of individuals come from a BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) background. When it comes to wellbeing, the mental health of BAME communities is vital because people from these communities frequently face individual and societal challenges which will affect access to healthcare and overall mental and physical health. It is important to note that BAME is a term that covers a wide range of people with a very diverse range of needs. Different ethnic groups have different experiences of psychological issues that reflect their culture and context. Data collected on the mental and physical wellbeing of minority ethnic groups can often be subject to small sample sizes, meaning our ability to grasp a fair representation of the problem is sometimes limited. For instance, there may be a small number of people from a certain ethnicity group taking part in a research survey. Mental illness affects individuals and communities physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Individuals and communities can\'t be fully understood without taking into consideration the context, their culture, and other factors such as their age, gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, and income status. And yet, despite the vast amount of research, awareness outreach programs, and changes in clinical practices, therapy for minority groups is still not widely available.   How can we improve access to care? Competent Care and Culturally Aware When it comes to integrating culturally sensitive care, many training programs in psychology and therapy just overlook the issue. Providers are ill-equipped with information and experience. However, schools, companies, and organisations should provide training and resources on how to better understand and treat potential service users from many different backgrounds and ethnicities. For example, African-Americans are more likely to be misdiagnosed with schizophrenia. Mental health professionals must understand the patient\'s context and culture to provide quality care. What\'s more, when giving culturally competent therapy services, the drop-out rates in patients decreases.   Raise Awareness Mental health affects individuals of all races, cultures, ages, genders, religions and income levels. Awareness and outreach are crucial components to addressing disparities within the counselling profession. A large number of BAME are unaware of the resources and services available to them. Some may seek counselling from church or community leaders, or elder in their family. There\'s nothing wrong with that in itself, but it\'s also important to be able to speak to a professional outside of the community, and therefore to provide information and resources. More programs, like the one created by the Office of Behavioral Health Equity, are being created to make sure quality of care is available to all. If you want to help, begin by educating yourself on issues faced by BAME and support organisations such as Black Lives Matter, read books, listen to podcasts, and so on. Beecholme Adult Care is proud to provide online counselling services to help people lead a happier life. BAC makes therapy and counselling available for all, and affordable, with some of our counsellors offering a free welcome session.
