People across Wales can now access free online therapy without needing to go through their GP.
People aged 16 and over experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, depression or stress can sign-up for a 12-week course of SilverCloud online therapy via their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
We have launched a partnership with south Gwynedd based charity Tan y Maen to help more people access the courses.
The roll-out of direct access to online therapy for Wales’ entire 16+ population recognises that people need immediate help in managing their mental health and wellbeing as the impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt, and reduces barriers to accessing this support.
What is ear wax?
Ear wax is naturally produced by a gland in the ear canal to keep ears clean and free from germs and infections. It is composed of old skin cells, dust, and oil from glands in the ear.
What should I do about ear wax build up?
If ear wax is not causing you any problems, it is best left alone. The ear is self-cleaning and often the wax will come out without you needing to do anything.
Sometimes ear wax can build up enough to cause hearing loss and other problems.
Wax build-up is more likely to happen to people who naturally have narrow ear canals, people who work in dusty environments, those who need to use ear plugs to protect their hearing at work, and hearing aid users.
The first step in treating problematic ear wax is to soften the wax to see if it comes out by itself, and to make removal by a health professional easier if that is required. If softening the wax is unsuccessful, you may decide to seek wax removal by a healthcare professional.
