I’m writing this post on the 23rd March 2021. Today marks a year since Boris announced that we were going into lockdown here in the UK. At 12pm, there was a minute's silence to remember everyone who had lost their lives as a result of Covid-19 pandemic. I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one… Continue reading Lessons From Lockdown: 8 Things I’ve Learned One Year On

2020 Blogging Goals: A Review

Earlier this year, I set myself some blogging goals for 2020, in a bid to get me developing things further. When lockdown happened (more specifically, the first… Continue reading 2020 Blogging Goals: A Review

The Therapy Diaries 6 | The University Years

I recently brought back The Therapy Diaries - looking into my experiences of the different forms of therapy I’ve had over the years. In the last instalment, I wrote about the long waits and numerous assessments I had before I finally had my CBT for OCD.

A Letter To My 10 Year Old Self

Update - April 2021 I'm re-reading this post in 2021, just over a week away from my 29th birthday, so I thought now would be a great time to re-share.

Lessons I Learned in My First Year of Blogging

Breaking Up with Psychology | Part 1

Looking at where I am now, it’s hard to believe that I once had dreams to become a therapist. I hate 90% of the general public and I have a whole batch of my own issues that would single handedly make any therapist sorted financially for life.

A Letter to My Younger Self

When I was first looking at ideas for my blog, this was one of the suggestions that kept popping up. I've attempted to write this a few times, but I struggled. What age did I write to?
