A huge shift from the usual uplifting articles, full of inspiration today.

In the attached article, we can see the spike of pressure upon people at this time of year, how those already feeling under pressure suffer most.  In this recent article we looked at coping strategies for Christmas.

The biggest issue here, is that men in particular, are too proud, too 'manly', too tough to talk to others about how they are feeling. Tragically, that leads to loss beyond belief.

At Serenity, we are not councilors, however we work with clients in depth to understand their big issues, then refer them to the professionals who are best equipped to help.
