This blog is my own thoughts and opinions on topics related to counselling and psychotherapy.


Everyone wants it. But not everyone figures it out. In fact in my line of work as a psychotherapist I mostly see people who are not happy. They are not happy with themselves, with their relationships, with their job or career, with their financial situation. The list is quite lengthy.

The reasons for not being happy are an individual thing and yet this group of unhappy people often have some things in common. One commonality I often see and work on with individuals is their sense of self. 

We all have what I refer to as “our inner GPS” or our “spidey sense”. It is that part of us (the self) that guides us in our lives. It tells us yes or no, good or bad, what we like and don’t like. And it is certainly an individual thing. When we listen to it our lives will feel content, in line, even happy. When we don’t listen to it, we feel unhappy, out of sorts, unable to make decisions.

So how do we get in touch with this inner GPS? We need to spend time with ourselves, in quiet, and start a relationship with that part of ourselves. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? However, in today’s busy world, most people don’t take the time for this part of their lives.

So if you are unhappy, start getting to know yourself and get on the road to happiness.
