One of my favourite artists, this is for anyone in the UK waking up feeling despondent today, his message..’don’t go giving up now’.

I’m going to be offering counselling outside of the therapy room. Walking in nature has so many benefits, both mental and physical.
Barry’s west end, where I am based, has such a beautiful coastline and country park. Watch this space for further information..
I’ve been guilty of talking about grief in terms of ‘tasks’ and ‘working through it’ as have some of the great writers about bereavement. But maybe there is another way, a way that honours.. not forces the process? A gentler way? My own grief has hit full force this weekend.
As a counsellor, I learned very quickly to bracket my own personal feelings, my own grief, in order to sit with my client and experience their inner world..
