#26 Let’s stop using self-help to overcome our suffering – An interview with Patricia Murphy

Let’s Stop using Self-Help to overcome our suffering A Conversation with Patricia Murphy

Welcome to Episode #26. In this episode, I get the pleasure of speaking to a lady who’s not afraid to speak her mind. She qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in 1985 and shares with us the benefits of her many years experience. As she approaches 60, she contemplates what she’s learned makes for good self-care and good therapy.

Her name is Patricia Murphy and she is championing a re-frame of the way we perceive self-help. In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • A simple method, yet not often easy, for taking care of yourself (Self-Help)
  • How you can utilise this tool in safe environments with the support of other people
  • Various popular examples of how people can organise their thoughts
  • A useful metaphor that espouses the easing of suffering

Join us in conversation.
