As a mindset coach, CBT and EMDR therapist, as well as dedicated runner, I am on a mission to ensure my fellow runners are out there running with good mental health, feeling confident and loving every step.
Running is undoubtedly good for our mental wellbeing and mindset, but my 19 years experience working in mental health has taught me that sometimes we need something more. When running becomes a necessity, we train to the point of injury because we have to run in order to cope, or running is the only place where we feel good about ourselves, the costs start to outweigh the benefits.
Running is there to be enjoyed, to enhance our wellbeing, to be the place where we amaze ourselves with what we can achieve.
By treating the underlying mindset or mental health difficulty, we can turn running into something to be enjoyed again, feel confident in ourselves, and be able to trust we can perform at our best whilst keeping well. All of which expands into our lives as a whole.
When we have a healthy relationship with ourselves and our sport, incredible things can happen.
You deserve to run well, to be well, to run happy, and to live happy.
