The ongoing news cycle and endless nature of social media doesn’t just distract us, it can make us feel overwhelmed and unhopeful. 

With negative news stories and posts online dominating the headlines and our social feeds, how can we stop it affecting our mental wellbeing?

This month UKCP’s CEO Sarah Niblock talks to UKCP psychotherapist John-Paul Davies about news, social media and the importance of boundaries.
