What's Love got to do with it?

Let’s start the year with a bang!

Happy weekend!

As we begin to return from the festive season high into the spring start of the year, let’s get set to go on a really exciting year for us at The Psychology Practice.

We’re set for our formal Grand Opening start of February 2019, and with a full team of 5 psychotherapists, we’re ready to provide a little more than just a new psychological practice in central Tanglin, Singapore. In fact, this year promises to be full of interesting surprises and things well placed for anyone keen on learning a bit of Psychology, understanding oneself, and learning how to apply psychological principles in multiple contexts. So stay tuned for more, from our front desk, as we are set to provide value for any of our followers and subscribers. So a big shoutout to all our partners, and supporters over the past year, as we enter into the next chapter of our brand, from psychology blog to a full on specialist psychological service.

Lookout for us at the Festival of Love 2019!

Why are we so difficult to love?

Ahead of the upcoming hype of the conference, here’s something to chew on, as we tease (pun intended) ourselves to consider our individual patterns of relating with others and how it can be a difficult and painful process to love and be loved. Get ourselves thinking about these common issues, and check out the video from The School of Life.

 
If we are single, we tend to assume that the problem must lie with us not having found 'the right person'. But perhaps reality is a little more complicated: we might be single because we are, in certain ways we need to understand, difficult to love.
