Have you felt like you’ve been plunged into an emotional crisis since lockdown? Our personal freedoms, that we often took for granted, became restricted. Although the situation is now stabilising, it is bound to have left its mark. Recognising the need to deal with the trauma of COVID-19, our experts have created a holistic programme for recovery: Resilience After Crisis.
Dr Melanie Robertson, health and clinical psychologist at the Park Igls health retreat explains:
‘Situations like the current pandemic have the power to turn our lives upside down overnight. Ordinary structures that normally provide security and stability are suddenly lost. Social distancing requirements, including the need for many to self-isolate, can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation. As the situation settles, I would consider a return to “normal” without dealing properly with what has happened a missed opportunity.’
