This story is not new. You pay someone for a service and they do not follow through in some way. What makes this story unfortunate is the business person at the centre – mindset guru, Dylan James. He makes his living peddling coaching at $350 an hour. He will listen to your issues and tell … Read morelet’s talk about Dylan James.
In group therapy, we were talking about the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial. I have mostly ignored it because, in my opinion, this has nothing to do with anyone besides the two of them. As everyone rattled on about it I realised one interesting fact: if Amber had not stood up for herself, none of this … Read moreJack Sparrow vs. The Time Pirate

He sent some TikTok videos as well and sent me an invite to follow him. I do … Read moreUm, what?
I remember my mother holding a newborn Isobel, gazing at her tiny, pink beauty and saying to me, “Maybe you should give her up for adoption.” I was horrified. Years went by and I was angry and confused at why she said that. What kind of woman would say that to her daughter while she … Read moreAdoption: an Era of colour blindness
As we unpack the hurt so we can leave it behind, we remember how things unravelled.
