I’ve always said I wanted to start a blog but I always hesitated because I wasn’t sure what to write about

Keywords: About Me

And then, a few nights ago, I had an epiphany. I’ve been having a lot of those over the past few years. But my epiphany was this: who cares what I write about on my blog? The only person it really needs to be meaningful for is me. It’s my words, it’s my thoughts, it’s my stories.

Doing something simply because you love it is enough — more than enough

My writing has given me clarity about what I want to do next. I will be starting an online degree in psychology next year with a long-term view of changing careers. I also have an idea for a number of books I plan to write.

I’ve never had a blog before, but I’ve always loved sharing my story and insights with others

My goal is to give my personal experience with counseling and mental health topics. I also want to share with you some of the tools I provide my clients, and hopefully, you will find them helpful too.

A lot of what I’m working on is retraining habits I picked up over time and building new ones

What I’ve shared are the biggest relatable lessons but there are many other things I’m learning about myself. If you’re interested in pursuing therapy, I hope you move forward with it. Really consider who you would want to work with, how much it will cost and is it within your budget, and your availability to attend regular sessions.

But I feel okay telling you that my early adulthood has not been easy. It has often felt characterized less by my successes than a string of traumatic (not a word I use lightly) experiences which I have not always been a willing participant in. This is not to say I’ve never fucked up or made self-sabotaging decisions- I absolutely have. But it has taken me a long time to accept that I have not always deserved the treatment I have received, particularly in a sexual and romantic context. Very rarely, in fact.

Therapy has a different purpose for different people, but for me it has been brilliant in helping me to develop trust in my own choices and have faith in my decisions

A few days ago I received my final classification for my Broadcast Journalism degree. After a lot of very hard work and discipline, I thankfully graduated with a 2:1. Not the highest grade, but much better than the 2:2 or 3rd I would have received if I hadn’t have pulled myself together at several stages during the last two years.

I hope you continue to pop in while I share my life

Keywords: what is art therapy , art therapy , healing journey , trauma story

I did not expect sharing my trauma story with strangers to be a foundational aspect of my adult life. Especially while entering the mental health profession. I feel like most therapists do not go there on a public level to maintain a sense of professionalism, but, fuck it.
