First Steps to Mental Health Wellbeing

Welcome.  I am Dr Kavita Deepak-Knights.  I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist delivering psychological therapy to patients in the Windsor, Maidenhead and Slough areas.

Well done on taking the first steps towards either seeking some help for yourself or someone you may know. You see, admitting that we are struggling seems like such a small step to take, but in reality this is the first and often one of the most challenging aspects of seeking support and making real changes in our lives. People often have beliefs like, “I should be able to cope”, “what will people think of me”, “I’m a failure”, “nobody can help me”. However, by seeking support you are taking responsibility for your own life and your future and by doing so, each little step you take is a step towards the life that you owe your self to live.

I can write about how I see people changing everyday and how people REALLY have gone on to live their life’s true potential. BUT: you’re not going to believe me. You will only believe in change when it really happens to you, when you see those small wins, when you see that progress, when you do something you never thought you could or say something to someone that you never felt that you would have the courage to say. So what that means is that at some point in life, you have to throw caution to the wind and take a risk. A risk that could lead to fulfilment, contentment, change, peace and acceptance. There is a lovely little saying that I use daily : “if you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got”. Moral of the story: sometimes if we want life to be different we have to take a risk and make those changes. Be brave, take a chance, this is your time….
