Saturday I had my hair cut and was feeling pretty much OK. I was so looking forward to my therapy today and coming out feeling revitalised and focussed. Well I'm not feeling as I had hoped! Over the last 6 weeks I've longed for the moment that I headed back into that room to start… Continue reading Back in therapy… and it’s self care tonight.

When anxiety catches up when I’m in a small group … I’m better with a crowd!

Radical acceptance in DBT

As I consider another aspect of my DBT, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, the light bulbs are pinging everywhere. For a long time now, I've walked around with a bit of a chip on my shoulder.
