Christmas can be wonderful and fun and festive! I do love it actually. Mostly.
And yes, Christmas can also be a difficult time. At best it’s somewhat stressful, and at worst, deeply, horribly painful.
With that in mind I wrote this piece for Voiceboks.com, parenting website, and in it I address the most common issues that I hear people bring into therapy at this time of year. I do hope you find it helpful.
My warmest wishes for Christmas – and while I’m here, may I offer you an letter from my colleague Tanya and me for the holiday season – our wishes, for you. For all of us:)
Warm wishes for Christmas!
