Welcome to my blog. People often ask me what I do, and, when they get my answer, assume that it must be a very distressing job. I love my work because I get to be someone who sees how people change, become more confident, develop self-esteem and resolve difficult and painful problems or situations in their lives, or come to terms with significant loss. I always feel excited and immensely privileged to be a part of that, so, no, I don’t find my work distressing, even as I empathise and feel with those who are struggling to find their way out of distressing situations.
I set up this blog so I can keep people informed about what is going on in the world of personal therapy and self development. I aim to share insights without disclosing confidences, to share new information, strategies and maybe even techniques for combating difficult people and situations.
I invite you to share too, if you have questions, experiences and strategies that have helped you move forward in your life. I will offer book reviews, a synopsis or two about recent articles in relevant press and journals. If there is anything else you would like to see here please feel free to ask. I, and I’m sure others, would love to hear from you.
