I’ve had my private practice website going for some time now, and thought I would add a blog. From time to time I’ll post some interesting news or information/updates about my Manchester counselling & psychotherapy service.
I’m really interested in the neuroscience of counselling & psychotherapy, so I’ll christen the blog with a quote from Norman Doidge, a neuroscientist and author who has brought the concept of neuroplasticity into the mainstream, so to speak:
“All of us have worries. We worry because we are intelligent beings. Intelligence predicts, that is its essence; the same intelligence that allows us to plan, hope, imagine, and hypothesize also allows us to worry and anticipate negative outcomes. (164)”
