Listen to this episode



Many of us are feeling anxious, stressed and scared as we try to adapt to new measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Helen Vaughan, psychotherapist with Maynooth Counselling, joined us to give some tips on minding your mental health during this challenging time.

  • Managing relationships: try not to control the other person's behaviour,┬ápay attention to tone and try not to criticise
  • Give yourself permission to feel anxious
  • Prepare for the possibility of a longer period of uncertainty
  • Focus on what you can control, not what you can't
  • Choose forms of self-care that are manageable for you
