Karin Sieger interview about coping with life’s adversities and growing resilient during difficult times.
A little while ago I was contacted by Susan Wheeler-Hall of the Living Well Today Show. She offers a range of services online to help us live well when we are not well. Susan had read some of my articles and asked me for an interview.
She was interested in my work as a therapist and my personal experience of cancer.
How did I cope then? How do I cope now? What lessons have I learnt? And what advice can I share?
The interview goes beyond cancer and offers something for everyone.
A lot of what we talk about is applicable to other challenges and difficult times, which you may have experienced.
Indeed, you may like to put some ideas into practice now – crisis or no crisis.
- Reflecting on some low points;
- Making sense of trauma, anger, fears;
- Carrying on despite or because of it all;
- Reconnecting with childhood abilities and interests;
- Facing uncertainty;
- Developing self care strategies during and after cancer treatment;
- Opening up new possibilities, while we can.
In the interview you can hear a bit about my own story and views, which not everyone may share. But that’s ok for me, and I hope for you, too.
We all have the ability to reach deep inside of us and find a way of coping with dark times.
