Do you really care?

I originally began training as a counsellor with the goal of helping at least one person to feel like someone actually cared about them.  I had known what it felt like to live in a world with millions of people yet feel like nobody cared and it hurt to think of others...

CHANGE.

CHANGE.

‘Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.’ Rumi Children are raised on tales of change and transformative happy endings. Clark Kent becomes Superman to combat crime. The fairytale frog is kissed into a prince...

Counselling or cosmology…?

A colleague recommends Laurence Krauss’s book ‘A Universe from Nothing’ as a mighty good read. The science – all string theory and dark matter  - is a challenge to one whose physics never progressed beyond refracted light.  But the cosmology is little short of...

Embrace the unknown

Living with uncertainty is an emotional quicksand, the cold hand of anxiety grabbing you in the gut. And yet it’s an unavoidable part of life: we ought, by rights, to arrive on this earth with an inbuilt way of handling it. From world affairs to 2017’s hottest-tipped...

The time of our lives…

Move over, Dr Who…we are all time travellers of one tense or another:  counselling sessions resonate with reflections on the past dramas and delights that have shaped our clients’ lives.  Therapy can be part archaeology – sifting through old experiences to explore and...

A helping of hypnosis …

A man at the end his tether called up our hypnotherapist Sarah Eley. He was suffering inexplicable panic attacks – one so severe that he feared a heart attack and called an ambulance. ‘It’s common for such clients to avoid situations where panic might ensue’ Sarah...

We need to talk about sex!

We need to talk about sex.  Yes, we need that conversation again. You might think that everything that could possible be said on this subject - and then some -was already covered last century.  The 1960s, after all, gave us the Pill, the publication of Lady...
