Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Online Is Perfect

When I was looking for a therapist for cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) at efficacy.org.uk a year ago I noticed right away that number therapists offered cognitive behavioural therapy online.

I didn’t really pay much attention to it to be honest as I didn’t think that online sessions would be much useful. I am one of those old school types who believes that personal interaction is always best, at least when comes to therapy.

Well, let’s just say that I was wrong. When the pandemic hit the UK early this year, my therapist right away switched to online only sessions. For me, this was the first time doing online CBT and I found it great in more than one way.

Firstly, I don’t have the impression that cognitive behavioural therapy online is lacking anything from the in-person sessions. I feel that they can get the same help like before, and talking to my therapist is as good as before. Obviously, it is much (MUCH!) more convenient to the sessions from home as the online therapy is also a lot more flexible with hours.

Secondly, not needing to visit the therapist each and every week is saving me quite a good chunk money for the bus.

I mean, if one is already having high-speed Internet which I assume most people at least in the bigger cities and UK have nowadays, why not take full advantage of it? And cognitive behavioural therapy online is one of the things that for me works exceptionally well no doubt! I’d definitely recommend that you check it out if you’re on the look for some type of therapy like CBT.

Corporate Entertainment: Boost Your Reputation

Corporate entertainment is so much more than booking a band for the next Christmas party. For businesses of all types, corporate events from summer barbecues to anniversaries are often opportunities to form new relationships with clients. It also where employers and employees can bond, often better than during the everyday routine of the ordinary workday.

A small and upcoming business can impress potential clients if they don’t skimp when it comes to their corporate events. And a huge part in that is the musical entertainment. No better way to impress your future Japanese partners with a glorious rendition of an aria or a portion of some smooth jazz.

In the United Kingdom, the Singing Waiters are one the most well-known professional entertainers. They are enjoying a reputation for stellar surprise entertainment but they can also be booked for corporate events. As each of the troupe has a professional background and comes from a renowned musical schools in the UK, corporate events will be unforgettable. Personally I highly recommend the Singing Waiters not only for corporate events but also for weddings and other family celebrations!

 

New Fire Safety Technologies

Better and more-advanced technology means increased fire safety. Although the basics of fire safety, like stocking fire extinguisher and knowing about fire risks are still the same, new technology is makig fire fighting a lot easier, quicker and more effective.

Here are some of the recent advances in fire detection and fire fighting technology:

Sound Wave Fire Extinguisher

How about putting out fires with sound? A sound wave fire extinguisher is a  chemical-free, water-free extinguisher that uses sound to deplete a fire from oxygen. Without oxygen, a fire dies out.

Researchers have previously attempted this idea but without much success. Now however, the sound wave extinguisher works reliably. At this point, the prototype is still somewhat costly ($600) but is likely to become much smaller and portable and more-affordable

Water Mist Systems

This is just like your typical sprinkler system, but better and more effective. For many, water mist systems are the future of fire fighting. Just like always, water is simply very good for fighting fires, and this puts the effectiveness of sprinkler systems on a whole new level.

Instead of using large droplets of water, water mist systems use a fine mist that is smothering the fire. The small droplets have a larger surface area so that water is converted to steam faster. This is also more effective in reducing the the temperature of the fire and suffocates the fire faster than old-fashioned sprinkler systems. In addition to that, these systems are significantly decreasing water damage.

Video Fire Detection

Popular in various industries such as foresting or anywhere else where vast spaces need to be monitored for fires, video fire detection is now also becoming popular for home owners. These systems can see fires even when they occur in the distance they can do so in real time within seconds one they occur.

What’s more, modern video fire detection systems are equipped to be able to automatically notify the fire brigade when they see a fire and can provide them with the GPS coordinates. This way, fires are often extinguished before they had a chance to cause any major damage. The fact that these systems work fully automatically makes them great for monitoring businesses and homes around the clock.
