If you are writing about mental health in any shape or form, and want to check facts, accuracy, etc., I run a (free) consultancy service for this. See here:

Such a generous thing to do.September 23, 2018 at 7:01 pm #1725Alan RainParticipant
Ditto and ditto.

It’s an incredibly kind service to offer, P. *blows kisses*
I might ask for some help with the newest wip once I’ve got the next batch of edits done…September 24, 2018 at 4:17 pm #1753
You’re welcome! It’s a nice way for me to bridge my two “identities” (writer and psychologist) xxSeptember 24, 2018 at 4:21 pm #1754WoolleybeansParticipant
This is basically what I write about. 🙂 Awesome.September 24, 2018 at 9:50 pm #1761GippsGirlParticipant
Wowed by your generosity, Philippa! I’m sure you do/will get a lot out of it too. In case you missed my post on another thread, I recently completed a stunning course at Faber called ‘Who do you think they are?’ which was led by a psychotherapist. It was fascinating and very useful.September 25, 2018 at 10:18 am #1774September 25, 2018 at 5:06 pm #1796GippsGirlParticipant
On the How to get an Agent thread, page 3. In any event, here is the course:
The course is horrendously expensive, and the course info is a little misleading in that the tutoring is only in the morning. Nevertheless, I, and everyone else on the course was blown away. Lots of theory and exercises to enhance learning.September 27, 2018 at 12:32 pm #1860
Oh yeah! That looks great. I know writer and Clinical Psychologist Stephanie Hutton has also now started running some similar courses herself. Great stuff!September 27, 2018 at 4:10 pm #1865DaedalusParticipant
It’s so heartening that people in the industry are taking this seriously now. And good though it is that there are paid-for courses available, for someone with the knowledge and experience to offer a checking and advice service free of charge is really brilliant.
Wondering if you might be up for ploughing through a 150k m/s loaded with PTSD etc?…September 27, 2018 at 6:01 pm #1873
Sure! You are welcome to email the MS over to me (do you have my email?)
