Hallo. I’m Helen Douglas, a counselling philosopher in Cape Town, South Africa. This is my blog of everyday philosophy, writing towards understanding and meaning in the lives we live.
I am busy with another writing project and so haven’t been posting much, but there is still plenty good grazing here.
Try a search, go play in the tag forest at the bottom of the page, leave me a comment, say hey…
