“Today was a big day, I have always been petrified of the dentist for as long as I can remember, and today was a day of having 2 very big fillings replaced which meant lots of injections. That was today, let's give you a bit of back story....” Even as an adult I had to take my business card to a dentist appointment because I'd be shaking and crying so much I couldn't tell the receptionist my name. If I needed work done I wouldn't sleep for a week, the worry of the appointment looming over me keeping me awake [...]

Animal therapy


Animal Assisted therapy within My Exceptional setting involves therapy but with an animal present in the room that is used to add to the calm, safe atmosphere. Our animals are trained to stay calm and relaxed, to bring balance and a sense of security to the room to aid the person in their recovery. It is suitable for people who are comfortable with an animal presence and would benefit from having a positive animal energy. They can either be in the room, or available for reassuring cuddles. It is in addition to the therapy session and over time we plan [...]

Not your normal “run post”


Not some “check out how far I ran post”. For those who know me, know that I am the opposite of a natural runner. I am a shire horse made for pulling large weights slowly, not for floating elegantly across the pavements. Am I proud of myself for going for a run: yes Am I pleased with my speed? Yes ish. Time isn't what I care about, I made it round without stopping. My time was very slow but I never walked and I never gave up and goodness knows I wanted to. Here are some of the thoughts that went [...]

Erectile Dysfunction


Impotence and Erectile Dysfunction There’s nothing to be embarrassed about here. There is no judgement. ED is a topic that most men suffer from in silence, it’s not usually the topic of the men’s conversations and because of this many men feel very isolated and lonely, often not seeking help, spending years missing out on a very natural part of human enjoyment. If you're reading this page then you are heading in the right direction. Sex, masturbation and in-between is a natural part of being human and to lose the ability to fufill these actions can have significant impact on [...]

7 Practical ways to help your child or teenager to cope with stress


Make sleep a priority Teenagers need a minimum of 8 hours up to about 10 hrs a night, with most research favouring over 9 hours. This is critical to their ability to cope, learn and manage stress. Sleep helps with weight management, stress and anxiety, ability to cope, ability to learn, ability to concentrate. Don’t laugh as there are ways to get your kids to agree to this, but electronics in bedrooms has a negative impact on sleep cycles. There is no research that I can find anywhere that says ‘watching tv or playing Xbox or watching you tube videos’ [...]
