Well, hello anxiety with Dr Jodi Richardson
10. Wisdom from an adolescent counsellor, w/ Eryka Rhodes, Looking Forward Counselling and Mindfulness
Eryka Rhodes, founder and owner of Looking Forward Counselling and Mindfulness, gives us an insider’s view on the important role counsellors can play in helping us with our mental health. I love Eryka’s mindful approach and authenticity, and especially how she begins by sharing the bodily sensations and future thinking that bubbled away for her in the lead up to this, her first podcast interview; and what she did in response. In addition to her wonderful work with adults in private practice, Eryka is a secondary school counsellor. She pulls back the curtain on adolescent thinking, the window of engagement, how she supports adolescents to bring calm to their experience when anxiety and distress are high, how to recognise our inner critic and our inner coach, self-harm in secondary students, and the many ways counsellors offer support in times of need. Enjoy.
