Dancing for Daddy

Over the last 24 hours the idea of actually liking human beings again started to look like a genuine possibility.

The days of getting giddy or casually falling in love seem like another century. The Covid age of other-people-urgh.

And then you meet someone who quite without sense or explanation sucker punches you out of the existentials, with just a few words or a joke or an act of kindness. The promise of other-people-are-ace.

Clare Slaney had me at “dancing for daddy”. I can’t do justice to the wisdom and hilarity that she has bestowed on me. Steady activism in the face of trolling and being patronised by blokes on twitter. She’s just the best.

Listen and learn kids as Clare talks about where the therapy game is going.
