How has this week got you down so far?
In case you needed an extra boost, I’m sending good vibes your way today and always!
Okay, so I’ve missed Valentines Day. It will come again. But in the meantime, do you know what your love language is?
Can I ask something super random? How are you feeling today?
I have been working as a therapist for over ten years, and in that time, I have noticed one thing repeatedly. Adult intimate partner relationships are complicated, and sometimes they feel downright impossible.
Couples counselling isn’t complicated.
It’s a specific form of talking therapy where two people sit down with a counsellor to talk about their relationship.
Nature has so much to tell us about letting go.
I’m looking out of my window here in London, England and I can see some evergreens, but some of the most striking trees are bare. They let go of their leaves some time ago, stripped bare by the autumn wind, naked and vulnerable.
How do you nourish your body and mind and improve your self-care?
Self-care has never been more critical for everyone.
Grief is a natural part of life. Most people don’t get through life, avoiding it.
Surprisingly we don’t just grieve when a person had died. We also grieve when a relationship has died, you’ve separated or divorced. But sometimes you are still in the trenches of the relationship processing its demise.
So what’s your favourite season? I love the autumn, and it’s definitely on its way! Right now, I’m looking outside my window and noticing the leaves blowing around in the light breeze. Some get blown off, and others cling to the branches of the trees. And this got me thinking about boundaries in relationships.
I am sure that you like me have been impacted, in one way or another, by events in the world right now. For sure, George Floyd’s death has undoubtedly engaged the collective consciousness into action on racism.
While the world faces a single problem that of Coronavirus – COVID19, what I’ve noticed is that we are all responding to this pandemic in our very different ways.
April is Stress Awareness Month.
In 2020 because of COVID-19, there’s certainly a different more potent resonance. The entire world, it would seem, is struggling to come to terms with Coronavirus. And the world is talking about mental health and the stress of living with this virus.
These are stressful times.
