Confession Time

I am sitting here with an ice pack on my back, unable to walk or drive very far due to back pain. I am feeling fat having stuffed my face with pizza, prosecco and of course there was a free tub of chocolate ice-cream, so why not? I was celebrating at home as I couldn’t go out (see my previous blog for the celebration reasons). If I had been feeling better I would have likely gone out, eaten a lot…

Proud and Playful

Sharing a proud moment today as the post arrived; I have been awarded my Senior Accredition for Counsellor/Psychotherapists for Children and Young People.

I am dying inside

Inspired by watching #MyViolentChild TV Show, reduced to tears as I watch a family who can't reach each other, no matter how hard they try. A child who says "I want to play with my dad", a child who says "Id love my kid more than my family love me".  A kid who is loved but his parents just can't get close enough to show him. I guess the tears are because I know how that feels, to feel lonely…

Kind words mean everything...

You do everything you claim to do. You're someone to talk to when life overwhelms you. You didn't judge;  you listened.
