Adolescent & Young Adult Therapy for 16-21 year olds

Adolescent & Young Adult Therapy for 16-21 year oldsOur young people now face more pressure in their lives than at any other time. The combination of our society of social media, peer and academic pressure together with all the physical and emotional change of becoming an adult can prove too much for many youngsters. The effects can be overwhelming and if left untreated can develop into more severe mental and physical illnesses.

Even the most well-meaning and supportive parents can fail to get through to their offspring, leaving them feeling helpless and inadequate as they watch their ‘child’ suffering or harming themselves. Communication can break down for all concerned.

Do you know what your Poolpump costs per year??!!

Do you know what your Poolpump costs per year??!!We all love our pools. Hardly possible to imagine any home in Algarve without one. Unfortunately many people don’t know that they are one of the biggest running costs of our home.

This is because of the Pool pump which filters to prevent algae blurring your pool. Even when you are not there it needs to filter, especially in summer. The sun in Algarve is 5 times stronger then in the Northern countries, so water heats up more quickly, again stimulating the algae.
Also nowadays sun cream with factor 50 are a standard to protect our skin. This however has an affect on the water quality of the pool, often resulting in the need to filter even more hours.

Carnage at the bins - warning to pet owners!

Carnage at the bins - warning to pet owners!Until recently, a group of ladies, Portuguese and expats, has been feeding a few strays at the waste bins near the A22 Junction 15 roundabout outside Moncarapacho. One of these dogs was a Portuguese Podengo that they had named “Alfaroba” and she had recently given birth. On a regular visit to check on the dogs, one of these ladies then found Alfaroba’s dead body, surrounded by 6 of her healthy pups – still alive. It seems that Alfaroba had been poisoned. The pups were rescued and taken into care by this lady.
