Big change-ups are coming for me in the new year!
A local colleague of mine, Laurie of www.LaurieBlaikie.com, and I have promised ourselves weekly work-dates so we can each *finally* get some consistent writing done for our respective blogs. It’s the peril of being self-employed (or dual-employed): so busy running the business and seeing clients and trying to work on profession development, that oft-times the general work of blogging is what falls through the cracks. so we’re going to fix that. Or else. No, really this time. We promise!
And the biggest news for my practice is: as of the end of January I will be joining the wonderful team of therapists at Bliss Counselling in uptown Waterloo! I will still continue to see current or new clients in my own home-based practice in the evenings, but I can now also offer day-time hours to new clients through Bliss’ office uptown. This may lead to a slow migration out of the home office to Bliss’ location, so conveniently close to the incoming LRT, but I promise nothing will impact existing clients in the foreseeable future, and there will be plenty of advance notice should things start to shift that way.
So as horrible a year as 2016 was for so many of us, I’m taking to heart even the smallest indications of better things (or even just *different* things) ahead in 2017. A new year is a good time for change, and even if you’re not inclined towards resolutions, January 1 is as good an arbitrary marker for changing things up as any. I may be wincing a bit in the harsh, residual glare of 2016, but I’m still looking ahead to 2017 with an open mind and a bruised but open heart. Hopefully many of you will find a way to do the same.
Merry Christmas and safe & happy holidays to you all!
