Stopping for a cuppa !

I am publishing this on National tea day 2021 as it felt timely to consider the therapeutic value of stopping for a cuppa.

Taking a break

Looking after your own needs can be difficult when there are lots of daily demands and the thought of stopping for ten minutes can seem impossible or indulgent. However, stopping for a cuppa can allow some vital self-care it can provide that time to stop what you are doing to make it, so allowing some space. By giving space to drink the cuppa it can allow rest, it could be that you have been going from one thing to another, so it allows a pause to stop, reflect and move forward. Refueling is so important as like a car you cannot run if you are on empty.

Being with others

Having a cup can also allow social connection. It has been long standing to invite someone to join you in having a cuppa whether this be with family, friends, or colleagues. The last year with lockdowns and social restrictions this may have not been possible or restricted. This could be a time to reconnect with other people through sitting down having a cuppa allowing it to start a common ground of connection.

Time for reflection

During a counselling session I will often ask how a client will have some time, frequently I have had responses around I will make myself a tea or coffee. This can be helpful to allow time to reflect and process what may have occurred during a session. Sometimes things which are talked about can be difficult, draining, exciting or enlightening. How ever someone is left afterwards will be unknown but when time is taken to look after yourself following a session it can be helpful.

If you are finding things difficult at moment, that you are low in mood, or feeling anxious or stuck. Counselling may be able to help through providing time and space to consider thoughts/ feelings/ experiences. You can contact me on 07745 528393 or

One other thing is that almost all digital cameras come equipped with some sort of zoom lens that permits more or less of any scene for being included by means of ‘zooming’ in and out.
