MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Dr Anwar Shea is a highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychologist. Dr Shea has supplied the following information to help give a better understanding: What is therapy and how does it work…

Therapy

Therapy offers an opportunity for people to explore, with a therapist in a confidential setting, any problems or painful areas in their lives.

Most of us experience times when we find it difficult to cope, and we need the support and understanding of someone who is impartial and non judgemental i.e. therapy.  Therapy offers us time to explore our problems with someone we can trust who hopefully can help us to achieve deeper and clearer understanding of ourselves and the nature of our distress. This will often lead to a new perspective on our lives, which will eventually help us make changes and choices accordingly.

Dr Shea is available to contact via the FMPA Register. You can access her profile page here

Rehabilitation of Ankle Injuries in Football

The ankle is one of the most common sites of injury in football, with a large percentage of those suffering an initial injury likely to have a recurrence. There remains a lot of debate regarding the best way of managing these injuries, along with the most effective testing methods that lead to minimising injury recurrence once a player has returned to training and competition.
