     This has touched me greatly. It's the reverse of my life. I lost my dear mother when I was 13. It took me till I was 38 to truly grieve this loss. It hit me like a tidal wave and in doing so I rode that wave and now I work with women who experience domestic and family violence. Thank you for the learning.

     You are and have been very brave. What a gift to the world and the population you work with. I am a body-psychotherapist and often work with sexual abuse victims and also at times with their perpetrators, so I have a sense of how you have  turned your story around and gifted your world.

     Thank you Ute for your kind words. I never really think about what I give, I just do it. It isn't till someone like yourself validates me that I realise the importance of what I do. Thank you!

     Yes, Avril, you are a Natural  at giving and receiving. AND what I find is that at times a 'clear ' self appreciation can be a shortcut to self healing, and it seems to me that you deserve it.
