World Health Day 7 April – Depression
My April blog focuses on depression because it is my way of supporting the World Health Organisations (WHO) campaign to raise awareness and highlight resources available to people who have been affected by depression.
More specifically the videos listed on the WHO web-site provide a practical introduction to the subject: I hope you enjoy watching them.
A Better Way to Talk about Love

The impact of divorce on children
My November blog profiles Professor Tamara D. Afifi, who looks at the impact of divorce on children. In her talk she includes the importance of keeping conflict away from children and ensuring children are not being used as a go-between for parent communication. Professor Afifi also provides ideas on how parents can help their children adjust, in a positive way, to the separation and post-divorce family life.
My blog this month concerns siblings, an issue raised by many people when they come to counselling. In his talk, Jeffrey Kluger explores the influence of birth order, favouritism and sibling rivalry on the life-long bond between brothers and sisters. He asks were you the favourite child, the wild child or the middle child?
My June blog considers parenting and why it is filled with so much anxiety. If this topic interests you, then take a look at Jennifer Senior, who offers her ideas. For parents, happiness is a very high bar
The Power of Talking
It’s surprising how many people don’t make the time to talk to each other, and yet most of us feel happier when we’ve exchanged a few words with someone, be they a neighbour, friend or acquaintance.
Talking can even have an impact on our health. A recent survey carried out by Relationships Australia found that “talking to a family member about their chronic pain made the pain better for 58% of the people that responded to the online research.”
