.......'He points out that the most common despair is to be in despair at no choosing, or willing, to be oneself;

but that the deepest form of despair is to choose 'to be another than himself'

My Inspiration

'The essence of trauma,
which is underneath all human dis-function, addiction, affliction, disease, confusion,
is separation from the self, ........and so the intention of all therapeutic interaction
needs to be helping a person reconnect with themselves......'

Dr Gabor Mate, Author, Speaker, Teacher
