David Collins, from the Toronto-based, Psychotherapy Referral Service that helps over 200 people every year connect with individuals as well as family and couple therapists to help them deal with their emotional and mental health issues joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Mental Health Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest David Collins discuss the following:

  1. There are people out there who may not believe that “talking about your problems to a therapist” will help them in any way. What would you say are the key benefits of therapy?
  2. For people who maybe have never experienced therapy, can you explain basically how psychotherapy works?
  3. What is PRS?
  4. How is professional therapy different from merely talking to friends and family about things that bother you?
  5. What are the indicators that a person should seek therapy?

 

David Collins is a Registered Psychotherapist that specializes in Emotional Disturbance, Childhood Abuse, Self-Harm, and Gender Issues. He strives to establish a strong rapport so that there hopefully will be nothing too shameful, sorrowful or unnatural, that it cannot be discussed. David believes that unlike our everyday lives, the therapeutic relationship is a unique bubble where we hopefully can feel free of the impingements of society for an hour every week to feel, consider and discuss whatever is our inner truth at the time. If in here we can get beyond the everyday self-censoring, we can engage in a real discussion of issues that may be controlling our lives, but from the shadows beyond our conscious attention.

Frank Healy, who remembers every day of his life since he was six years old and is now 58 joins eHealth Radio and the Personal Development Channel. Frank remembers the day of the week, the weather, news, and personal events. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor and life coach. He has written several books on healing your memories and today is the launch of his memoir “Who Could Forget”.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Frank Healy discuss the following:

  1. When did you realize you had an extraordinary memory?
  2. What are the good and bad points of remembering everything?
  3. How did having this memory affect your career choices?
  4. What are the ways you help people with this?
  5. How does it affect your life now?

 

Frank Healy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach. He is one of about 80 people who has been classified as having Hyperthymesia by the University of California. Frank participated in their research studies because he remembers every day of his life since he was six years old. He is now in his 50’s.

His memory of each day includes the day of the week, the weather in his locale, news events and personal experiences. Recalling so much in his life had its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages include recall of every happy experience he had with friends, family, school and his wife. The corollary of that is that he remembers all the negative things. Bad days at work and school, slights from people, romantic breakups etc. 

Before he began his own journey, he would recall bad memories with the same emotional intensity as if he was experiencing it now. He had learned to let go of the feelings. He now counsels and coaches people to heal from the ill effects of their own traumatic and unpleasant memories. This can help people be happier and move on to a successful present and future.

Frank lives with his wife in Dennisville, New Jersey. He is in private practice at Associates for Life Enhancement in Northfield, New Jersey. Frank enjoys going to the beach, reading, writing, playing quizzo with friends (It's a trivia game) and playing ball with his grandsons.

You’ve Lost a Loved One. Don’t Lose Your Health Too!

January 27, 2017
00:0000:00

Robin_eHealth_Radio_profile_image.jpg

Robin Fiorelli, Sr. Director of Bereavement and Volunteers at Vitas Healthcare the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care joins eHealth Radio and the Emotional Health, Health Care & Health News Channels.

Robin Fiorelli has spent her career thinking about loss, death and grief. From what to say to a friend who is grieving to what a community needs when a public tragedy strikes, her education and experience as director of bereavement and volunteer services at VITAS Healthcare have served her, VITAS and the public well.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Robin Fiorelli discuss the following:

  • Does grief affect our overall health? Specifically what about our physical health and psychological health?
  • What is complicated grief and what risk factors are associated with it?
  • What are the indications that grief is moving from its normal course and becoming a problem?
  • What are some current theories on how our bodies process grief?
  • What are some tips for coping with grief – and keeping our own wellness in mind?

Summary: Grief is universal and it is a normal human reaction to losing a loved one.  Because the grief experience can be so difficult though, we often think we are losing our minds. So, it helps to understand what normal grief looks like, how we can help those who are grieving and what steps we can take to prevent grief from significantly affecting our health. 

 

Robin Fiorelli, LCSW, is senior director of bereavement and volunteer services for VITAS Healthcare. Robin develops, implements and standardizes VITAS’ volunteer and bereavement services nationwide.

She also serves as the liaison between Global Partners in Care and VITAS’ 17 African hospice partnerships, and is liaison between VITAS Community Connection, a non-profit affiliate, and VITAS Healthcare. Additionally, she provides support and education to
VITAS ethics committees nationwide.

Robin has more than 25 years of social services and bereavement support experience. She joined VITAS in 1993 as a social worker in San Diego. She has served in her current position since 2003.

“It was through my experience observing grief outcomes,” Robin says of the topic she will discuss, “that I began to conclude that those mourners who were able to gradually adjust emotionally, socially and spiritually also seemed to sustain better physical health overall. And they seemed to survive longer after their loss. Social support, faith and the individual’s psychological makeup have all been shown in the literature to greatly affect an individual’s grief outcome.
 
“That’s why, at VITAS, we are careful to individually assess each bereaved caregiver’s history—coping with prior loss, social support, internal strengths—to develop a plan of care tailored to their current needs for grief support.”
 
Robin has received the national VITAS Award for Excellence in Management, been named to VITAS’ Leadership Council and won the Social Worker of the Year Award for the San Diego chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. She recently served two terms on the NHPCO bereavement steering committee—officially known as the National Council of Hospice and Palliative Professionals section of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

She is the author of many of the resources on VITAS.com written for grieving friends and family, and has contributed throughout her career to published books and articles on grief and loss and their effects on health.

Robin earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in social work at the University of California, Berkeley.
