In her initial podcast, Dr. Margaret focuses on the seven things that keep your work in therapy safe and appropriate. Her “Seven Commandments of Good Therapy” applies to all therapies, and gives you a yardstick to measure a new therapist, or therapy you’re already receiving. It’s amazing how many people keep going to therapy, without feeling as if they’re getting better!  In a funny, but poignant way, she describes what you can expect from a reliable therapist, no matter their speciality or licensure. Also included in this episode: her answer to a question from a mother whose son committed suicide — and no one suspected depression.

My new book entitled Perfectly Hidden Depression has arrived and you can order here! Its message is specifically for those with a struggle with strong perfectionism which acts to mask underlying emotional pain. But the many self-help techniques described can be used by everyone who chooses to begin to address emotions long hidden away that are clouding and sabotaging your current life.
