Is it Possible to Avoid Depressions’ Downward Spiral?

When I had depression, the downward spiral had a starring role in my life. This is before I even knew I was suffering from depression. It didn’t matter what the event was, if I could mount the top of the spiral, I would do it, automatically and keep going down and down and down until I was literally on the floor hugging myself in tears – sometimes even scratching myself with the sheer anger and heart-wrenching sadness that was filling every inch of me.

It’s not you, it’s me. You’re right, it is you!

It’s not you, it’s me. You’re right, it is you!

Most of us have heard this ‘lame’ line in break-ups but what if I told you that it may not actually be lame? That it may actually be the full blown truth but it’s too difficult for us to accept the flaws we have, so it’s just easier to say this rather than have a full-blown moment of self-reflection in a break-up.

What to do when you’re Feeling Stuck

What to do when you’re Feeling Stuck

Easy answer, call me ☺️ Before you do that though, you’ll probably spend days and weeks googling the hell out of feeling stuck, trying to look for the reason why you’re feeling stuck on countless web pages, perhaps get distracted by ads promising your whole life transformation in minutes if you ‘do the one thing’ or buy something.

How to Talk about Depression at Home or at Work

Travel as Therapy: The rise of the Healing Holiday

Travel can do wonders for everyone if done regularly and with awareness – obviously not in the clinical sense (before I get in trouble with various counsels) but from a therapeutic perspective. What I mean here is that you’re not just booking a holiday because you’re so overwhelmed/stressed out that you need to run away and escape to 30 degree heat and room service. I’m talking about planning your entire year around your time away rather than the usual way we do it, around work. Some people already do this and I’m pretty sure they‘re happier for it. You see, this is where your values come into play. What’s most important to you? You can’t just say health and then burn yourself to the ground before you take time for yourself.
