Tears Are Useful

Tears Are Useful

  • The release of talking, of being listened to, is an emotional experience.
  • Many sessions, particularly in these early days, can be emotionally battering, tearful, and can leave anyone feeling wrung out for days.

Proper Change Takes Time

Proper Change Takes Time

  • A therapist is part detective, part archaeologist, scratching at the surface, finding something of potential interest and digging a little deeper.
  • These quieter, less emotional sessions are where the deep excavation takes place.
  • They work as a team, trying to piece things together, make connections.
  • In the real world, life starts to get a little easier.

The Past Holds Clues

The Past Holds Clues

We survive (in the broadest sense) our childhoods by figuring out how to fit into our families, our roles, our small world; we learn about relationships from our parents. We then carry these ways of being into our adult lives where, in many cases, they are no longer useful, or relevant.

Don't Blame Your Parents

Don't Blame Your Parents

Once this truth is established, it leads to more interesting conversations. 

Understanding that you not flawed – or, more accurately, that we all are, so get over it – and that you must dictate what shape your life takes gives you the freedom to think about the choices you could make in future.

With this newfound insight that your parents are not responsible for your state, only you are, comes a sense of freedom.

Asking The Right Questions

Asking The Right Questions

The cliche goes that therapists nod their heads wisely and say: “And how did that make you feel?” They do say this sometimes; and in fact, when no one has ever asked you this question before, it’s extremely powerful when they do, repeatedly.

This repetition starts to have an effect: it makes you see that your feelings are valid; they aren’t right or wrong – they just are.

Don’t Be Afraid of Silence

Don’t Be Afraid of Silence

Silences are often when the juiciest things come out. It takes courage to sit with it.

If you fill your silence to avoid awkwardness, you’re actually avoiding something else - an intimacy, a genuine thought, an ability to feel a little exposed.

Random Self Check-ins

  • What's happening for you right now?
  • This is a question we don't often ask ourselves, checking in with the present moment. 
  • It helps us stay in the now, and gradually moves us into full awareness.

You Have to Know when To Stop

You Have to Know when To Stop

  • Therapy is a powerful means to an end, and it can arm us to have the skills to become a self-therapist.
  • The end of therapy does not means that the problems have ended. It means that now you have the skills to handle them yourself.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
