Flow ~ In positive psychology, flow, is also known as being in “the zone”. It means that attention is fully immersed in the present moment and is accompanied by feelings of well-being.
When we experience mental health difficulties it is usually because our minds are time travelling back to the past or imagining an anxiety provoking future. Helen’s aim is to help you to focus on what is important to you, stay in the present, not to get too wrapped up in unhelpful thoughts and to get you where you want to go.

just have to keep on flowing"

it’s whether you get up”
