What to Expect with Psychotherapy

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.

Simplifying foot taping to provide optimal arch support and pain relief

September 5, 2018

loricoates_500x500.jpg

 

Lori Coates, Founder of the QUICK TAPE Foot Support Strap, designed by Coates and her son Chris, that implifies foot taping to provide optimal arch support and pain relief in a single, easy-to-use strap joins eHealth Radio and the Foot Health and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Lori Coates discuss the following:

  1. What exactly is plantar fasciitis, what causes it and are certain people more prone to it?
  2. Why is plantar fasciitis so notoriously hard to treat?
  3. What treatment methods are available, and how well do they work?
  4. What can someone do to prevent plantar fasciitis?
  5. How does the QUICK TAPE strap work?

 

Lori Coates is the Founder of Support the Foot and co-inventor of the QUICK TAPE Foot Support Strap, an innovative, easy-to-apply product that provides instant support and fast relief from plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, and other types of foot and ankle pain. After doctors had told Lori’s son Chris that surgery was the only option to treat his severe plantar fasciitis, Chris and Lori consulted with a podiatrist, who taped his foot as a temporary measure. Much to their surprise, Chris experienced dramatic relief just from the taping. While taping worked, it was a tedious, time-consuming process to tape Chris’s foot every day. Lori and Chris set out to design a simpler, more comfortable alternative that would provide the same level of relief as foot taping done at a podiatrist’s office. Support The Foot was born, with QUICK TAPE as its flagship product.

Based on the clinically proven Low Dye taping method, QUICK TAPE straps dramatically simplify the foot taping process, letting patients tape their own feet effectively at home without the time and expense of a trip to the podiatrist. Each strap is made from durable medical grade cloth athletic tape and can be applied in a matter of seconds. Since launching Support The Foot in 2016, podiatrists, sports medicine doctors and athletic trainers in 19 states and 4 countries have incorporated QUICK TAPE into their practices.

QUICK TAPE Foot Support Straps are also available for online purchase at www.supportthefoot.com.
