  • On The Couch - The Things That We Stop Doing & Why 31.05.2017

    It’s On the Couch with Suzanne Radford, who is joined in the studio by Dr Thoraiya Kanafani, Clinical Psychologist based at Human Relations Institute and Clinics.

    Exploring psychology and the human brain – why do we stop feeling, and doing, the things that we once enjoyed doing? Stop being in love, or fall out of friendship with our once, so called best buddy?

    Looking at all of the things we stop doing such as exercising, eating well, talking to friends, doing the activities we love, even listening... Could this shift reflect a change in your mental health? People suffering from clinical depression lose interest in hobbies, friends, work and even food. This is because the regions of your brain that control what are known as pleasure or reward pathways in your brain, are reduced, meaning that you can only enjoy things for a certain amount of time.
