“The Well” !!!!!
We are very excited to announce that on Jan 1, 2019 Waterford Counseling and Psychological Services will open its new 1500 sq ft Exercise and Yoga Treatment Center (The Well), where patients can go to:
“Get well and Stay well”
It is no secret to those of us who have a passion for improving mental health that exercise and yoga are well-established, evidence-based interventions for individuals suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. Many counselors, as well as other healthcare providers, routinely make recommendations to their patients to utilize these modalities as a way to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression. However, many patients rarely follow through because of significant, and sometimes, overwhelming obstacles. Many complain that they are:
· intimidated by gyms
· do not have the energy to motivate themselves to find yoga and exercise options in the community
· do not have the financial resources to access these services, or
· are simply unsure as to what type of exercise or yoga program might be right for them.
If you are one of these people, we have good news for you!!
At Waterford, it is our goal to help remove these obstacles so that you can access the amazing benefits of participating in these activities in order to improve your mental, physical and overall health. We have trained clinicians at “The Well” who will guide you thru the entire process and help you find a yoga and/or exercise treatment program that is right for you. All of our clinicians are dedicated to helping you “get well and stay well”.
