“Stop trying to shrink the world into the size of a self-help book. It doesn’t fit...  Reading about how to be a pilot doesn’t make you a pilot. Plane gonna crash.” ~ Laurie Ann Fuhr

Banishing fear

I like the above quote by Margaret Bourke-White. I also like another one of hers -

To understand another human being you must gain some insight into the conditions which made him what he is.

Margaret Bourke-White (1904 – 1971) was an American photographer and documentary photographer.

Open Evenings

Open Evenings

(This photo is just to fool you – the door has been re-painted blue now!!)

Prospective students and anyone else interested in the work of the Centre are invited to attend one of our Open Evenings.  

They will be held on  
Wednesday 15th and Thursday 30th May.  

You can arrive any time between 6.15 p.m. and 8.15 p.m.   Note there will be a short presentation about the costs and content of the courses at 7.15 p.m. 

Before and after that there will an opportunity to meet the staff and see around the premises.  Here is a chance to ask anything you want about the courses and workshops.  For future students this is an opportunity to have a look where you’ll be working – the Training Rooms and the Counselling Rooms which you’ll be using to practice your skills – and see the facilities such as the library.

Partners are welcome to come with you.  Counselling training can be a challenging journey and, as such, may have an effect on partners.  Because of this we would welcome partners coming with you to chat to the tutors and get an insight into the demands of the courses. 

(Interviews for the courses will be held on Wednesday 12th June and Thursday 13th June.)

Do something

Don't do nothing because you can't do everything.
Do something.  Anything.

Every new year

Every new year is a fresh start - a do-over; a chance to mend a fence, repair a wrong, fix a bad habit, renew a relationship, forget a pain.  May you not feel burdened by this new chance this year.  May you be gentle on yourself if you fail and may you not be afraid to try again in the months ahead.

(This was found on a blog a few days ago and I apologise to the blogger that I didn't note their name.)
