About Me

Reading with Green Parasol, Mary Cassat

Comparing the About Me pages written in 2010 and 2011 it is apparent how far I have already come in my journey, writing now in October 2017.

I am now at a cross over point in my life. I’m approaching 50 and my children have almost finished school with three years to go. I have 4 sons ranging from 15 to 25 and I have spent a very long time being a single parent. With the end (of full time parenting at least) in sight, it is time for me to think about what I want, not something I am used to.

I am from September 2017 embarking on a qualification entitled “Certificate of Counselling”. Equivalent to an A level this is a second step on a journey that could lead me to becoming a fully qualified person-centred therapist.

This is also just another step in my own journey to becoming the person I wish I’d always been, to fulfil my potential. I am only beginning to accept the positive changes that I have made in the last few years. After several years of using counsellors in training I have put my money towards me and have been seeing a private therapist for two years now who has helped me on my way.

I write about my course, my own journey in self-awareness and of course about my sons. My childhood features less than it used to but it still crops up now and then.

  1. I “stumbled upon” your blog and just want to encourage you. I have also found to write about my daily life and the challenges I experience to be therapeutic and in fact an experience I enjoy more as time goes by. I do believe that you have lots to contribute and share with people which will impact their lives. Be strong and courageous!
