I set out to write about trust and ended up with a post on hope. That was a week ago. These thoughts crossed my mind as I attempted to begin. Do you need trust to hope? Can hope be sustained without trust? And this line of enquiry got me to the hope post. Hope is... Continue Reading →

I am humbled, again. There are many joys in my work as a psychotherapist yet few would beat this.
