Follow my blog on Wordpress! (susanguttridge.wordpress.com)
Since entering into private practice, I have slowly been writing a blog. My intention is always to put information out there for not just my clients, but for anyone taking on (or contemplating) their own healing journey. We can cover a lot of ground in therapy sessions, but there is also a lot of processing that can go on between sessions. I hope that by writing, someone out there will struggle a little less. I see change every day in the amazing people I work with, no matter how small.
The title of my blog is inspired by existential Psychiatrist Irvin Yalom, after his popular novel by the same title. The work of Irvin Yalom has been influential throughout my counsellor training and career. It is through Yalom’s perspectives, questioning, and dedication to providing excellent therapy to clients that I have been able to better attune to clients in the moment, being a genuine caring presence for their healing journey. I contacted Irvin to ask if I could name my blog after his book - not only did he respond, but he also said yes! It was an honour to have correspondence with you Irvin, and thank you!
