When shame and anxiety haunt you….

When I had to take a quiz on Sunday, I suddenly noticed the garage needed to be cleaned and I hadn’t bought the kid’s Easter baskets.

Do you love the inner child?


Over the last few years I’ve been very much aware of the fact that my marriage has been ‘parental’ in nature. Even before our relationship started to deteriorate and I began to react to my husband in the way that I often react to my mother, I used to feel that he was the ‘strong […]

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive.
