Writer’s Block…

by | Feb 1, 2016 | Blog | 0 comments

Ever started a sentence a gazillion times, because no matter how you typed it, it just wouldn’t tell the story you want it to tell? Fragmented identity works this way… We start it… a few tentative words on the page, for one audience, to tell one story… and then our audience, our story, even our language, is whipped out from under us, and we start again. Another day, another identity… will the story come out as planned?

When people come to me, they tend to be familiar with this struggle… the self, the story, they wanted to write isn’t working out somehow. They feel the pain of a frustrated identity… and want help to get a clearer vision of how to get writing their story again.

Life Story offers an analytical technique that clarifies one’s vision of the story that has been written so far… where we have come from… the significance of past events on the now.

This analysis offers a frustrated identity space to take stock, and a return of control over the story to come. We talk through how the client envisions the story ending, and work out together how to make the story ‘join up’ to acheve that end.

We work together, collaborating on your story. I re-centre you as hero of your story, and support you as you, once again, pick up your pen, and cheer you on as you meet those blank pages with less dread, and more joy and hope in the story yet to come.

Third Culture Kids and Adverse Childhood Experiences

Third Culture Kids and Adverse Childhood Experiences

I knew it’d be hard to read Tanya Crossman and Lauren Wells’ recent research. I was right. As much as I eagerly read the methodologies and results of their work, “Caution and Hope: The Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences in Globally Mobile Third Culture Kids”, I could feel a heart clench of pain for the many TCKs I work with who know the pain of adverse childhood experiences all too well.

Third Culture Kids and Repatriating Well

A client shared with me recently how they had been looking for accounts of Third Culture Kids repatriating, and how little they had found to very little to inform them. This challenged me in more ways than one – first to consider why the narrative of TCK repatriation...

The Third Culture Kid drive to “be good”

The Third Culture Kid drive to “be good”

I’m currently sat at my desk in a mild slumpy grumpy space. It’s because I’ve eaten too much sugar, and drunk too much coffee and now I feel I need a good long lie down. I want to hide from myself, because I’m cross that I over-indulged. However, given that I’m me, I’m feeling curious as well as grumpy – why did I do it? Why did I eat and drink more than was good for me? Now I’m getting all philosophical and asking the BIG question – why do we do what we don’t want to do, and why don’t we do what we want?
