It’s bad enough that there are not enough availability of therapy and counselling services. The problem is made worse by the reasons people come up with to stop them seeking therapy when it could help.

I have just added a page of Frequently Asked Questions which responds to some of the common ones.

Take a look, and please let me know if you think anything needs to be added.

  1. Your question and answer post is excellent. In my 70’s now, I was a person who “always” thought I could take care of myself. With a horrible young background I was abandoned at the age of 15, thought I was strong enough to cope with anything. I spent a good majority of my life “thinking” I was strong before finally accepting that I wasn’t and that in reality I hated myself. In my mid 60’s I discovered CAT and now I almost preach about it to those who want to know. It is by far the best thing that ever happened to me, except for finding my 2nd husband, who encouraged me to do what was necessary to love myself. If only I had had your questions and answers, maybe I would have started this process earlier, then again, maybe not as we all have to come to this point in our own way, but your answers are clear and concise and the most helpful I have ever read…

  2. Thank you, thank you. I hope I write with assurance, I want to appear to know my topics, even when they are exploratory. But I also know that ‘I know nothing’, and my inner editor is constantly nagging.

    The FAQs were overdue. I hear those sorts of questions and others so often. I’m never really sure how to respond, as I don’t want to sound pushy or as though I’m trying to sell something (even though I am).

    Comments like yours are affirming and inspire me to do more. Thanks again.

Depression’s a Bugger!

I don’t know why I’m bothering. Misinformation and misunderstanding have such an effective grip on attitudes towards depression that there’s little point.

Anyone who says the sort of things I do meets with quizzical stares and the sort of tolerant dismissal reserved for the stupidest kid in class who says they are going to make something of themselves. Or doubt, or even scorn. It’s enough to make me depressed!

Every case of depression is a personal tragedy. We all need to care enough to start thinking for ourselves.

We’ve been Talking About It Ever Since the Garden of Eden

Tend your garden

Our language is littered with gardening metaphors. I suppose that’s because we have been in contact with the earth throughout human history and that connection has shaped many of our expressions.

It has also given us an innate understanding of how to help things grow and flourish in all areas of our lives, and the things that need weeding out if our relationships are to continue to provide nourishment and beauty year after year.

Find a Sacred Place – 2

In an earlier post I wrote about finding a ‘sacred place’. There have been some questions about what I meant by ‘sacred place’.

Maybe this will clarify things a bit. Dictionary definitions seem to equate sacred with religious, and so does St. Google. I mean something different.
