Usually, I am the host of this podcast, but this episode is about thoughts I have had as we start 2020. Instead of interviewing a guest, I am offering my thoughts and perspectives, on life, the way we are in the world, as well as in our relationships.


The things I will be talking about are whether you have made New Year Resolutions, and what happens if you don’t keep to them?

Unrealistic expectations we put on ourselves and on our partners and relationships,

The effect of social media and advertising on our sense of satisfaction

Comparison is damaging

I ask - What is perfection?

I also suggest that it’s more helpful to focus on the positives that our partner brings to our relationship, rather than the negatives.


Wendy is a qualified psychotherapist with more than 16 years professional and a lifetime of personal experience.

The personal experiences include contracting polio aged 4 years old from which she made a full recovery, two divorces, one of which was with an abusive partner, redundancy, a period of depression, being a single partner, breast cancer 30 years ago, which included a mastectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She sees herself like a cat having nine lives.

She now works with individuals and couples who are stuck in old negative patterns of behaviours often due to a traumatic event in their lives. She helps them to get to the root cause and then supports them to move forward to create healthy relationships with themselves and others.
