Logotherapy

by Pickersgill Reef Self Mastery – Choosing Your Response “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way” Victor FranklOne of the things I love most about coaching others is when they really get that creating more of what they want in their lives doesn’t have to be complicated. Nine times out of ten those light bulb moments follow on from a simple realisation that there is nothing wrong with them after all; it is just that what they have been doing (or thinking) up until that point has been misaligned with the kind of results they want experience.This takes the….

Mental Illness and Creativity

Mental Illness

by Darron Birgenheier Mental Illness and Creativity How the mind works? Our culture is full of so much stereotypes about it and may be most of all artists suffer from it. The juxtaposition between genius art masters and their great art works despite their mental illness or because of it has been part of our life for thousands of years. The science has not yet been able to prove it right or disapprove.

Stigma Against Mental Illness? No Way!

Stigma Against Mental Illness? No Way! I have read numerous articles over the years complaining that people who have been diagnosed with mental illness not only have to struggle with their illness but the universal stigma against the mentally ill.I have wondered for a long time why people who have been diagnosed with mental illness don’t stop complaining about the stigma, and why they don’t put more energy into complaining about the diagnosis.For instance. When I was diagnosed with manic-depression (they call it bipolar now) as a young woman in my 30s, I asked for some explanation of what, specifically, was my problem. I got such a hodge-podge of confusing-information that I…. Click Here to Read More
