The (No 49) Spring 2012 Issue is well worth a read. Not surprisingly Counselling Psychologists are well-represented in this BPS Section. You may be very interested in Dr Diana Voller’s article on " ‘Heal Thyself’ or ‘Know Thyself’ ". Part of her conclusion says: "The continuation of effective compassionate clinical work rests on nurturing a realistic assessment of all of our selves (sic), including the essential role of our capacity to be "in" uncertainty or vulnerability…" (page 20). Dr Ho Law has also written interestingly on Work/Life Balance o- or Life/Life Balance".
