Welcome to my new counselling and psychotherapy blog.
If you’ve suddenly found yourself on this page and are wondering what it’s all about, I’m Tania Glyde, author turned counsellor/psychotherapist in private practice in Central London.
There are so many interesting things going on in the world and it all moves so fast. I’m going to share articles I’ve written, thoughts on therapy, and other material that might be useful or interesting. I’ll also be putting up links relating to mental health and gender/sexual diversity. I’ll be focusing partly on articles that have come out in the last week, and partly on older stuff that I think deserves another outing because I found it so helpful. (Needless to say, me linking to something doesn’t mean I endorse or agree with every word of it, but I and my colleagues might have found it a fruitful talking point.)
If you’re brand new to therapy, here’s my guide to having counselling and what to expect. If you’d like to read more, Sense About Sex has a detailed section about getting help. I’ll also be addressing some issues that come up a lot, and making suggestions about how to make the festive season go as well as it can, whether you’re participating or trying to avoid it.
Thanks for reading.
