And so it begins

About Shrink Wrap, the blog

Psychologist Stephanie ThompsonBlog post #1.  Here it is, finally.

Why does it take so long to get around to things?  That reminds me, I really should write that article about procrastination.

I’ve contemplated writing a blog for about two years, and have finally taken the plunge.  I hope to bring you interesting ponderings about life, happiness and the human condition, with practical take-home tips, a little humour, and as much wisdom and objectivity as I can muster.

Also, the psychology of business and current affairs.

This blog is taking shape just as the USA has concluded its history-changing Clinton-Trump 2016 election.  I did not anticipate ever thanking Donald Trump for anything, but now I have to; he got this blog going.  Though I already have an archive of articles and posts to add, Trump’s shenanigans have generated a whole new impetus and urgency for self-expression.

I’ve also got a book on the boil.  It’s about how to have a happy life and be free from depression and anxiety, without spending a decade in therapy getting overly complicated, or taking drugs, or relying only on positive thinking and then being sorely disappointed.  Its working title is Curriculum For A Happy Life.

I have a particular knack with my private clients for creating more positive and calmer mood, quickly, for building true confidence, and for facilitating the resolution of all manner of practical problems.  My book will capture all of those techniques, and much more.  So if you are not able to come and see me, you can do most of it for yourself.  That’s the grand plan.  I will keep you posted – literally.

Of course you are welcome to come and see or Skype me too, for therapeutic coaching, executive coaching or corporate human resources services.

In the meantime, blogosphere, here we go…

  1. Veгy nice. I just stumbled upon your webloց and wanted to say that Ӏ
    have truly enjoyеd surfing around your blog posts.

    In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you
    write more very soon!

  2. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your wonderful posts. Also, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!

  3. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  4. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    • Thanks for your comment ht.  I tend to wait for the writing urge to strike, motivated by a topic that’s on my mind.  With that impetus it’s relatively easy to find a way to capture attention with the first few lines.  If less inspired, I might sketch out the concepts and decide later how to structure the beginning. 🙂

  5. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
