  Myths and Maths Or The Myth-tress and the Math-ter Part the First Once upon a time not so long ago but nearer than you might think there lived a woman of indeterminate age, some say she was young and some say she was old but I will leave it up to you to decide. Her name was Selene and there was nothing she liked better than to gaze at the moon whether it was full and brightening the night into day or whether it was the finest most delicate crescent hanging in the luminous blue of the evening sky….

Down from the Ivory Tower: a treatise on the dissolution of concretised belief systems

One might ask, ‘what is psychotherapy?’ or ‘what is the point of psychotherapy?’ or ‘what are the outcomes of psychotherapy?’ As a traditional psychotherapist I might answer, we don’t have ‘points’ or ‘outcomes’… probably!  I might simply follow my training model and work within its general fixed historical rules as opposed to looking at the unique context of particular individual’s specific situation. Let’s consider a piece of satire – let’s call our pretend paper ‘Research for real people’ – to help explain why! Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, but not too far away, at the topmost top of a Tower made of the most beautiful and ancient Ivory,(on the back of many elephants before we knew better) there lived a very, very, very clever Professor in a room right at the top.

Say no to Diet drinks

Say no to ‘diet ‘ drinks Interesting links being looked at for Gulf War Syndrome and other ‘mysterious’ illnesses. It has been suggested that when ‘diet’ canned drinks are left in excessive heat the sweetener converts rapidly into formaldehyde and does not revert on cooling… think about it!

National Training Day – Reflections from the Moon

Our National Staff Training day runs twice a year. We always look forward to meeting with everyone and sharing best practice. Most recently we had some new friends who might be interested in the franchising aspects, so an unusual mix. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day despite the lack of sandwiches. Usually they make trays too many and must have decided, as we left a lot previously, this time not to make enough! They gave us chocolate muffins instead as a healthy option. I had already brought a birthday cake for Karen but she took it home. Karen had come down from Children First in Scotland and was sick poor lass, not fun to have to travel when you feel rough however at least her organisation had paid for her and this maybe a first step in the Noo.
