Well, this is a first for me. I've never attempted to write a blog before and to be honest, I never thought I would. I was walking the pup, Salty, earlier today and the thought of starting a blog popped into my head, as seems to be the way with the inner workings of my mind. So I thought, why not?
A little bit about me? My name is Saskia. I've haphazardly orbited the sun for a total of 29 years and counting. I decided to become a Therapist aged 16/17. I currently work in Private Practice as a counsellor/psychotherapist and LOVE it. As previously mentioned, I keep the company of my four legged adventure and walking companion, Salty and I currently reside in a little beach side town in Dorset with my fairly patient partner. I like talking about myself and I guess I'll like writing about myself too.
As this blog unravells, I want this space to be an inclusion of different elements of who I am now and who I will become. I want to include my professional experiences as a therapist. My experiences training to be therapist. The day to day experiences of being a complicated human in an even more complicated world. The occasional rant. Random rambling thoughts of my consciousness and finally, I hope to make you laugh. Laughter is food for the soul. I forget to laugh. Sometimes I laugh too much, (mostly at my own actions and jokes).
My fears in starting this blog are many and I feel more will unfold as I continue this journey with you. Perhaps we might share in a few fears together. That would be nice. Fear likes company ~ a fearful connection...? I feel exposed and vulnerable writing this introductory post alone, I can only imagine how such feelings might expand and flow as I continue on this written adventure.
I am sure that the aims of my blog may entangle and interchange as time passes and I hope that this is the case. As is the natural order of evolving throughout our existence. I hope to reach just one reader and help you to feel just a little bit less alone. I hope to spark emotions of joy, anger, distaste, humour, angst and all the rest. I hope to call you out. I hope to call you forward. I hope to offer you the chance to take the terrifying leap into the unknown with me and lean inward as I do.
Follow me and let's see where this takes us.
