Forgive and Forget

The dictionary defines "to forgive" as this: Verb. To stop feeling angry or resentful towards someone for an offence, flaw, or mistake.
But language evolves. And maybe, to you, forgive and forget doesn't mean letting go of something so as to feel better. It means forgive the abuser and forget the victim. And it shouldn't.

Conflict Avoidance

Episode 190: Conflict Avoidance

Avoiding conflict can influence the big things in life as well as the small things. It's why people split up over text rather than actually deal with a relationship problem face to face.

Almost everyone comes into therapy with some aspect of this. It's worth drilling down on who we actually mean though, when we say to ourselves that we worry what "other people" think.
Who are these anonymous other people?

You Got This

Episode 189: Energy Levels

With some enthusiasm we can go from dragging our feet and saying how tired we are to suddenly being alert and awake. But whether it's about scripting a podcast episode or going for a run, it's really easy to say to ourselves "I don't feel like it" and if your energy levels have dropped it's definitely worth looking into why.

Impulse Control

Episode 188: Impulse Control

Whether it's because of tempting treats in your cupboard, the opportunity to play at online roulette or trying to push away thoughts that we don't like. Sometimes our brain works against us rather than for us and leads us down paths we were deliberately trying to avoid.
