What’s your best advice on how to learn to manage hyper-vigilance when it shows up? I often find myself noticing and fixating on tiny mood shifts in people around me and then panicking about it. I’m aware of it and getting better at soothing and reassuring myself... but sometimes it’s so difficult to let go of the stories I create in my head out of the smallest things!

I'm really enjoying substack (I'd not heard of it until you told us about it), and discovering other content creators has been great. I was wondering how you were finding it and how it has improved your wellbeing? I especially enjoy that there are no adverts

Do you believe IT is possible to fall in love quickly? If someone told you they are in love with you after 2 or 3 dates, how would you react? Would you think their feelings are genuine or they just have fallen for their idea of you or are mistaking infatuation for love?

I studied psychology and now I am looking into becoming either a therapist or a life coach. I would like you to share what do you think are the most important differences between the two and why have you decided for coaching?

I’m about to quit my job of 7 years because I am looking after myself and my own boundaries, but it’s really scary as I’m not sure what I want to do next. Any advice on how to not let the anxiety about the uncertainty paralyse me or just take over?

How to build a relationship with a parent who thinks you are their friend. Ive been creating a boundary for about 2 years and I'm being told that I'm distant and don't share as much since I'm with my partner (we are together 3.5 years and see ourselves together for the long haul). Any time I share important info it is thrown back at me some in the future.

Several therapists and I think my father is narcissistic. I experienced mental violence, child and emotional neglect from him. Do you think it is possible to change a dynamic like that in general and just by setting boundaries now without talking about the past with him? And what boundaries can you recommend to start this change? Any tips on setting boundaries when you’ve been triggered?
