This is the blog where counselors and therapists with the Lisbon Clinic of Therapy and Counseling (www.lisboncpc.org) write about mind issues, ideas, emotions, memories, dreams, art and life in general.
You're welcome to voice your opinions. At Lisbon Clinic we value the capacity to enjoy life in spite of all its difficulties. We want to be both thoughtful and helpful.
Brene Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston, spent years of her research on subjects like vulnerability, shame, human connection and authenticity.
In this TED video she talks about the temptation to numb our emotions and about being (or: daring to be) ourselves.
