Everything in one place…

All the poetry, tools, reflections all in one place.

Not sure where to start. Words which fall on deaf ears…

This feels like one of the harder blogs to write. I did not know where to start. I have written it so many times and hesitated at posting it. I share this journey because I recognise there is likely other people struggling through similar challenges and whilst I recognise no one has all the answers […]

A record day of posting. Why you should always give yourself time.

Last night I was so angry. Angry with myself for wanting a life I didn’t think was rightfully mine. For building my happiness in denial and lies. For lighting the match which could burn it all. I was ready to wipe the slate clean. To step away from all the friends and family I love. […]

Get ready to blast off. A short reflection on a year and a life.

So it’s my birthday today. And well it has been a really wonderful and interesting and tricky year. Before this year I was decided the past was the past and that is exactly where it should stay. But it wasn’t healthy. As much as most days I was able to keep a lid on it. […]

Starting a hard conversation. Advice is often easier to give than take.

Well that was the start of a conversation I have managed to avoid for around a decade. It was so hard, but I am glad I managed to start it. Preparing to begin… I have been speaking with my therapist Chris about how to talk to my eldest daughter about my childhood. She has frequently […]

Trauma Therapy Session 19: The Magic pill EMDR at least for some

Continuing to share a journey through therapy in the hopes it helps someone else find their path. I was so hesitant about today. I must admit I think part of me was a bit of a skeptic. I didn’t see how waving my eyes back and forth or tapping my legs would make any difference. […]
