Blog post showcase: whose space is it anyway? by: Manda Glanfield


Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.



Today’s post comes from Manda Glandfield, and is all about how we manage our physical and personal space, especially in light of the social distancing guidance.

I love the title, as it’s similar to one of mine – mine is about relationships. You can read it here.

Manda, through a personal anecdote, shows us how she went from anxious to finding her peace in a busy street, and helps us explore how we can find that for ourselves as well, in whatever way works best for us.

She sets a balance between being separated from others, and our human need for connection. She leaves us with a question about how to move forward…

Hello everyone, and welcome to this ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.



In this post, Haley talks to us about re-thinking our “new normal” as we start coming out of lockdown.

This post was written originally on May 11th, so things are moving a big more as we start the month of June.

Haley challenges us with considering what parts of “normal” we’d like to get back to, after experiencing a bit more quiet and contemplation maybe, or a different kind of relating with those in our household, or even working from home!

Finally, Haley runs us through an exercise that can help deal with uncertainty and plan for the future.

Blog Post Showcase “My life should be fine; why should I have counselling?” – Because prevention is Better Than Cure, by Tonia Higgins

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is practical-steps-to-blogging.jpg

Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday’s new ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.

In this week’s post, Tonia introduces her second blog post in her new series, which leads us to think about counselling in a different way.


This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is copy-of-untitled-1.jpg

In this post, Tonia challenges us to think about counselling as something more than a cure for ill-mental health.

It can also be a preventative measure to ensure we keep mentally healthy.

Therapy can be about so much more, and the things affecting our lives can be very subtle, as Tonia mentions in her post.

She also talks about a topic dear to my heart – self-care. There are subtle things we tell ourselves that hinder our lives in small or great ways.

Have a read of Tonia’s post to find out how counselling can help with these.

Blog Post Showcase “My life should be fine; why should I have counselling?” – Introduction by Tonia Higgins

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is practical-steps-to-blogging.jpg

Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday’s new ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.

In this week’s post, Tonia introduces her latest blog post series, where she’ll talk to us about why counselling is important as a preventative resource, rather than only to be accessed in times of crisis or difficulty.


This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is copy-of-untitled-1.jpg

Our mental health is important all the time, and not only when we’re not feeling well.

We might think that we are fine, but still be struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues or something else.

It’s OK to not be OK and ask for help from a therapist like Tonia or myself.

Tonia introduces 3 further blog posts with reasons why we can attend counselling when things seem fine.

I’ll be sharing these in following Wednesdays.
