Out of all the feelings we can experience shame is the least spoken about. Perhaps for obvious reasons shame is the emotion that makes us want to hide away from the world. I often joke with clients that it is the emotion most likely to cause us to hide under our bed and not come [...]

While all educators understand the evolving nature of learning and the challenges that come with this, few stop to put into place some self-care until it is too late. True educators tend to have two passions – supporting students (whether that be children, young people or adults) and a love of their subject area. But [...]

Married at First Sight – Should We Be Allowing Kids To Watch Reality Television?

By |2019-03-20T11:07:26+08:00March 20th, 2019|Couples, Interpersonal Therapy, Men, Parents, Positive Psychology, Women, Young Adults|

It continues to amaze me that reality television has been as popular as seems to be.

I was recently asked what I thought about [...]

Most people that I speak to in the psychology office, say that they would like to become more confident to make friends or begin dating someone. Shy, avoidant or anxious people are most likely to miss out on making friends because they believe that when people don’t approach them or instantly respond in the way [...]

Fear is our emotional response to a real or perceived threat to our wellbeing.  It is a normal and very important emotion that has helped us survive through the ages by identifying, predicting and avoiding danger.
