Living the Good Life

“How to live well?”  That must surely be the most important question for a human being.

“Why?”  Because if you learn how to live well, you will be rewarded with optimum levels of health, happiness, personal success, connection to good people, and feelings of wellbeing and joy.

And why do I mention this here?  Because this question – “How do I live well?” – is central to the journey that I have been on, with Renata, my wife and best friend, for the past 38 years.

In that time, we have learned a lot about how to live well. And that is the core of what we teach to our counselling and coaching clients; and that is what we describe and publish in our books and blogs.

Do you want to improve your ability to answer that question with wisdom: “How can I live well?”

Or perhaps you are wondering: “How can I improve my life’s direction, or my sense of personal satisfaction as a good, moral, successful person, in a joyful relationship?”

If so, then we can help you!

⊕ REBT Pages

We were both trained in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), which was the original form of CBT.  However, we have both moved on in recent years, into a much broader form of Lifestyle Counselling and Coaching, which straddles all of the major schools of thought in the world of counselling, plus health coaching, nutritional psychiatry, affect regulation theory, attachment theory, and much more besides. In the processing of finding our way out of REBT, we produced a lot of analyses, as follows:

♣ 1. REBT: The limitations and errors in this system of counselling and psychotherapy

~~~

♣ 2. Albert Ellis – A wounded psychotherapist

~~~

♣ 3. Unfit for Purpose: The case against Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (RE & CBT)
