My Monster (Paperback)
My Monster was born in the middle of the night in 2018. As I lay awake, I wondered how to support my younger clients, who quite often were anxious about coming in to see me. Counselling can be a very daunting thing and difficult to understand. Most people rely on images from movies, TV and media as a guide, but if truth be told, it’s not like this at all.
The aim of this book is to show that no matter what your monster is: be it anxiety, bullying, abuse, bereavement, etc., and no matter what age you are, we all have the ability to take the power back through therapeutic support. Of course, no monster completely disappears. It just stays with us and we learn from it.
This book is designed to assist everyone to become more aware of their own monsters. We know they exist, but they don’t have to be in control. Through openness, support and care for ourselves, we can hold our monsters in our hands, rather than them overshadowing us.
