to the May issue of Ballincollig Health & Wellbeing. As always, this issue is packed full of information about how you can improve your mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing. Every month I repeat how all our therapists are qualified and insured in their fields. I cannot stress the importance of this and it is imperative that you ask your therapist about their qualifications, so you can be sure they are operating from a place of knowledge and professionalism.
A couple of our contributors mention this in their articles this month; and I want to reiterate it also. I was recently asked by one of my clients, apologetically, about my qualifications. She was embarrassed about asking; I was delighted she asked. Never feel bad about asking your therapist about their training, and where they trained; it is your right. Most of us have invested years and thousands on our qualifications and are only too delighted to talk about them!
One of the reasons I started this magazine was so that I could create a network of health and wellbeing professionals. When I was working on my own, here in Ballincollig, I was always slow to refer my clients as I felt I could not send them on with trust and confidence if I did not know the therapist, their experience and training. Now 2 years on, via this magazine we have created a wonderful network and we have trust in each other. We pass this onto your every month, so you can have trust in each and every contributor in this magazine. It is vital that when you go to any therapist, practitioner, trainer or teacher, that you ask – after all, you are trusting this person with your health and wellbeing.
