Lying on the Couch contains tons of articles about the counselling process, mindfulness, and simple strategies to regulate emotion. I hope that by making this information easily accessible, someone out there will struggle a little less. I see change every day in the amazing people I work with, and it inspires me to reach more folks and encourage them in their healing journey.
The name 'Lying on the Couch' 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!
