I can’t believe I’m writing this, my last blog of 2022, a week out from Christmas – I know I say it every year, but this one feels like it’s flown by especially quickly. This time next week it will be Christmas Day and I will be taking a couple of weeks off not only working in the practice, but also social media and blog-writing. It’s been two years that I have consistently written weekly blogs and tried to share some hopefully useful insights into mental health, trauma and some of the approaches that help support recovery.
t’s been a longer than usual break between writing for the TBW blog this Christmas holidays – and it really was a planned and very deliberate extended downtime for me and the team. I feel like every year I write something along the lines of “it’s been a really big / challenging / hard year”
