The Attracting Force of Woman

The Attracting Force of Woman

I was just in Zurich some years ago and I found myself with half an hour to wait to meet my partner downstairs outside our hotel.

The hotel was by the river Limmat, and outside were lovely little tables right on the river where the Swiss enjoy their drinks and coffees.

Instead though, I decided to go back upstairs and use the time to lie on the bed and relax - and...

How I transformed Depression

How I transformed Depression

 

The #metoo campaign a few weeks ago highlighted the burden women (and men) carry in the realm of sexuality, abuse and harassment, often resulting in debilitating depression and anxiety, as well as many other dire consequences.

I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

I'm sorry. Please forgive me.

Body Image - the Female Curse

Body Image - the Female Curse

As I've grown older and going through the changes as a post-menopausal woman, I can't say that I have escaped body image issues through my years or that I was that artful at not passing this on as a young Mum. I'm sad about this. Yet it's so common. Even with the best of intentions, somehow our children absorb it, if not from the overculture around us.
