November 2020 Newsletter

Dear TherapyFriends,

Thank you for signing up and staying with us at TherapyFriends. This month, we are completely mobile friendly. Some of you have given us feedback on the problems with the site. Thanks. We are working on it. Please continue telling us as we go along. 

Also, this month we have organised our Advisory Board. The Board consists of experienced professionals who have been TherapyFriends from the beginning. A post giving more details is on the site.

Jules Evans’ Letter to Rachel part 1 and 2, explore his thoughts and despair with a nod at Albert Ellis, the founder of CBT. Alvin James, another TF subscriber, writes his philosophy.

Our TherapyFriends members have contributed to the site via their posts. Nitiya has written a reflective piece on Hinduism, the idea of progress and its conflict with culture in Nepal. Dr Lis & Stephanie have written about chronic conditions and mental health. Inzamam has debunked positivity. Do read and respond.

We have a Christmas message to look forward to next month. Also, an experienced Ayurveda practitioner who will write for TherapyFriends. Do take a look at our mobile friendly TF version. If you have something to suggest or people you know who would like to write for TF, do contact us at

If anyone would like to add to reviews and reading lists, they are most welcome. It will help to pass the time during our winter lockdown.
