Mimi Fong

Whilst the physical toll of COVID-19 has been widespread, it’s the psychological and emotional effects that are even more far-reaching. As a Master NLP Practitioner and Life Coach, it’s been an interesting glimpse for me into human nature and how we respond to uncertainty and change. What happens when our primal instincts truly overtake us. So let me reassure you … if you’re experiencing heightened anxiety, stress and sleepless nights, you’re not alone. And the good news is that you can do something about it … to stop the negativity, self-doubt and anxiety from overwhelming you and taking control of your life. In NLP, we call it rewiring and reconditioning your brain to default to a different response that positively supports you. If you’d like to find out how you can begin to reprogram the way that you think so you can take back control and find that inner calm, confidence and peace, then make sure you get a copy of my free downloadable ‘4 Reasons You Can’t Break The Cycle Of Negativity And Self-Doubt’.

Resilient Space

Resilient Space is a local Inner West well-being service that provides counselling services to young people and adults. Resilient Space is now offering telehealth counselling services which can be accessed via telephone/on-line. Navigating the sudden shift to working from home, loss of employment, struggles with helping children and adolescents learn from home, living in isolation and disconnect from family/friends are real issues. Feelings of anxiety, sadness, confusion and hopelessness are ‘normal’ responses at this time – we are all struggling to find meaning in this new space. It is important to remind ourselves that in a time of crisis many things feel like they are out of our control and it can be helpful to focus on those things we can control. It can be useful to minimize demands/expectations and promote our self-care and the care of others. It can be helpful to connect with professional support in such times. Are you interested to build your skills/knowledge in the area of mental health?

I take an evidence-based approach to nutrition and offer tailor-made plans that are flexible, achievable and sustainable. I can help if:

Drummoyne Dental Surgery

During these strange times, we’re still open and available at Drummoyne Dental Surgery to take care of you and your family. Currently we are only allowed to provide emergency dental care, so if you’re in pain, break a tooth, one the kids has an accident involving their mouth or something has flared up, give us a call on 98197277 and mention you’re a fellow IWM and we’ll get you in for an appointment.

With all the grazing that a lot of us are doing at the moment, remember to brush those pearly whites twice a day with a fluoridated tooth paste, and floss daily – it really does make a huge difference. Take care Mamas 🙂
