My own lived experience stems from surviving persistent emotional abuse in childhood - with a deep sense of meaning. I have always believed that humans are intrinsically good and that we all have the innate resources to recover. Psychodrama with a truly client-centred coach brought this to the fore some 35 years ago. Since then, I have done considerable research into intuition and insight facilitating presence to self as a process - and, yet more importantly, as a social worker I have shown how this approach helped clients who were all but written-off by the typical mainstream services. The greatest praise: One such client said to me 'I can talk to you because you are not afraid.' The greatest challenge: The conscientious decision to see through a legal case for defamation after Whistleblowing in NHS Mental Health Safeguarding: 'Better a break in your career than in your spine.'
I look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. One key moment connecting insights was ca 2007 hearing Jacqui Dillon, now Dr. JD, say at a Conference: We are all on the spectrum of human experience.
