It's is not always easy - to self love.  It can be a process for many.  If you find it difficult... Here are a few ways to help with the process.  Let yourself heal, let yourself love what makes you who you are.  1.  Start a journal. No one’s saying you have to pen the next great novel, but one of the best ways to get to know yourself is writing down your thoughts.

Fall In Love With Yourself
Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first. Still, at first it sounds ridiculous. We usually think of falling in love as a process specific to dating, but in reality, we fall in love in so many different ways and with so many different things. We fall in love with people, places, literature, art, and even states of mind. There is no wrong way to love, other than to not love at all. The problem becomes our own familiarity with ourselves. We often become so complacent t... Read More

We live in a culture of perfectionism. Open any women's magazine or watch any TV program and you can't escape the emphasis we put on looking, behaving, and achieving perfectly.  We've become an intolerant bunch that is quick to judge - ourselves and others - and notice when we don't measure up to the unspoken measuring sticks of beauty, success, talent, and intellect.   We put the emphasis on doing rather than being, which is where perfectionism likes to live. It lives ... Read More

A Time To Be Thankful
It’s all too easy to moan isn't it: about the weather, about the state of the country, about our jobs and even our general lot in life? But there are times when something happens to make you stop and think and realize that you have a lot or (or maybe just a little) to be thankful for. That “stop & think” moment could be the loss of someone you care about, the news that someone you know has lost their job, seeing an advert or news feature on television that reminds you wha...

Stop Sabotaging Yourself
Many people struggle with following through on their plans, commitments, or stated desires. Sometimes it is as if there is another voice or person inside of us that gets in our way. This part of us might tell us to postpone an important task until tomorrow, or might tell us that we shouldn’t aim for that promotion. It seeks to lead us astray and ultimately keeps us from accomplishing our long-term goals. At other times, not only does this alternate voice get in our way, it actually harm... Read More

 To begin, an awful lot of mental health care is already self-pay, in that more so than probably any other health care profession a large number of mental health professionals do not accept insurance. For example, a recent New York Times article found that only 55% of psychiatrists accept insurance, compared to about 86% of other medical doctors. The picture for other mental health providers, such as psychologists and licensed therapists, seems to be similar. The good news is ... Read More
