“No. I thought you’d be home earlier, that we could get a takeaway together.’ It’s not his fault, but I still feel angry. It’s symptomatic of the problems in our entire relationship. We both work so hard we’ve almost become strangers. And when we are together, we argue.”
Ruth Heald, I Know Your Secret

“As a therapist, I act as a sounding board for my clients, helping them hear their inner voice. I’m not here to provide guidance or tell you what to do. Rather, I’m here to help you work out what you want to do.”
Ruth Heald, I Know Your Secret
