Think-feel on paper for improved personal functioning in every area of your life!

I sat in my meditation chair, focussing my attention on an object on the carpet in front of me; and also on my breath moving gently in and out, as my diaphragm rose and fell. I was supremely centred in the present moment, in a state of complete calmness.

Suddenly, a creative new idea popped into my consciousness, like a salmon rising out of a clear stream. I reached to my left, picked up my Journal, and began to write the idea down! Why?

Ideas come and go through our minds, all day long, like crows flying in and out of the barn of our conscious mind; and what happens to virtually all of them is that they get lost, as they are dumped back into non-consciousness.

If we want to harvest our creative ideas; as well as processing our difficult experiences; we have to think-feel on paper.

I have been doing this for many years; and out of these kinds of writing-reflection experiences, I have completed much of my own self-therapy. I have also been handed a number of ideas for books (by my creative subconscious mind), which I wrote down, and later developed to fruition.

And that is where my book - How to Write a New Life for Yourself - came from; in small instalments; from week to week; and month to month. And as I wrote up each instalment, in a blog post; or in a paper or article; or an eBook; so the material expanded. I was also able to test these ideas out in practice; to read widely about writing therapy systems developed by others: like James Pennebaker; Julia Cameron; Muriel Schiffman; Brian Tracey; Gillie Bolton; Patrick Mulligan; and many more. And to apply all of those ideas in my own life, and in working with my Email Counselling clients.

You could improve your brainpower, your emotional intelligence, your self-therapy capacity, and your ability to help others by teaching writing therapy to them. I would strongly recommend this approach...

Lifestyle counselling is often needed to calm the Angry-Body-Brain-Mind!

If individual counselling and therapy clients were ‘floating heads’ then all we would need to help them to resolve their problems would be some form of talk therapy.

However, when counselling clients turn up in the offices of counsellors and psychotherapists, they don’t always have straightforward presenting problems. There are often complex underlying problems. It is not always as easy as ABC!

For examples:

Sometimes I see an angry client, and their anger stems from family-of-origin modelling. That is to say, they had at least one angry parent, who ‘taught’ them that the way to solve interpersonal problems is to get “mad as hell!”

At other times, I see angry clients who are suffering from sleep insufficiency, or sleep disruption (sometimes because of alcohol abuse, or because of blue-light devices in the bedroom!) And this is a ‘great way’ to induce anger and rage!

Then again, I have often had angry clients who simply are not getting their current emotional needs met – sometimes because of couple conflict; or attachment problems; or because of poor emotional intelligence (which sometimes looks like extreme Stoicism!)

And it is increasingly common to meet angry clients whose main problem is their heavy consumption of junk food, containing trans-fats!

Also, some angry clients have unrealistic expectations of themselves, other people, and/or the world. That is to say, they have a self-angering philosophy of life.

Or they are locked into a sedentary lifestyle; drink too much alcohol; stay up too late; take recreational drugs or prescription medication; all of which disrupt their REM sleep, and reduce their emotional intelligence; etc.

And so on.

The tools required to deal with the diverse range of emotional, behaviour and relationship problems - that are presented today in counsellors’ consulting rooms - has had to expand and expand over recent years, as the range of causes of emotional disturbance has expanded. The big change here is that lifestyle self-management skills have gone into decline, in the face of social/commercial pressures which promote unhealthy lifestyles.

For these reasons we are promoting a new approach to lifestyle counselling...

In our book, we teach counsellors and psychotherapists how to spot the diet and nutrition, the sleep, and the exercise triggers for anger, anxiety and depression; and what to do about it...
