The Fear Factor | bazaarKuwait

Dr Susannah-The Fear Factor  Love writing for bazaar Magazine, Kuwait, and I am always so pleased with how the bazaar peeps make my little scribbles look so wonderful. This is the end of the third year I’ve had the privilege of contributing to this magazine, and I look forward to the New Year, new opportunities and old friends in Kuwait.

Adly & the bazaarites… May 2016 be all that you hope for and so much more than you can imagine.

Good Vibrations

I like music. It’s always been a source of comfort, connection, and community. To find out that neuroscience has been able to measure what makes a “feel good” song doesn’t surprise me. Science and emotions are not mutually exclusive, and I personally love the sometimes unusual data that comes when the two intersect.

Melodie, our Client Concierge, always plays movie themes in the reception area. Walking from my office into the middle of the theme from ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ immediately brings a smile to my face. It’s ‘feel good’ music for me. For Bill, he stops what he’s doing when he hears any version of Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World,’ though his favourite is the original version. Check out this article on what makes a feel good song. Given the parameters, what songs would you add?

Beliefs we need to ditch | Reblog

Often, clients end up learning through the process of therapy that they are holding onto to beliefs about themselves, life, and the world in general …that they didn’t know they had. Those beliefs are the framework for decision-making, which is why they end up in my office.

“Why do I keep doing this over and over? I don’t want to, and yet, here I am, again!”

Sepi Tajima writes most eloquently on emotional wellness and the things that hinder our enjoyment in life – this post is worth the time it takes to read.
