So, here we are, you'd think that I could find a way to fill a few pages about myself and therein lies the problem, I can't, or I can but I find it really bloody difficult. I'd have thought that after 48 years I'd have plenty of crap to carp on about, something to say to big myself up or just the usual rubbish 'this is me' kind of stuff. Well, I could but it'd be so damn boring for you to read, let alone for me to write, so you get what's here, just some brief stuff about what I do, counselling, photography and web development.

Counselling is my career, to give my full Sunday title I am a Gestalt and Body Process Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Supervisor, bit of a mouthfull TBH so I just call myself a counsellor or supervisor depending on the situation (sometimes I'll use psychotherapist if I need an ego boost). I'd like to write a book or something, another thing I'll probably put off doing indefinately...

Photography is my hobby, though I'd love to make a bit of money doing it, but not so much that it spoils the joy of doing it. It seems to be the kind of thing which could take a person around the world (wishful thinking) which would be much more enjoyable than simply making a few bob.

Web development I tried to have a career in, but being paid for it spoiled the fun too much, I love writing code when I'm in the mood, so deadlines kind of killed it for me, that and clients thinking they knew better about coding and that I knew enough about their businesses to write their copy for them, *sigh*. I taught myself HTML (woo) then Javascript, php, MySQL, XML, Apache admin stuff, etc, etc. I took a few OUOpens in a new window courses and learned C and C++ too but never really did anything with that. During this time I also taught myself how to build small, robust networks and run FTP and mail servers. Now I just do it all for fun and relaxation, as WordpressOpens in a new window say, "code is poetry" and I did write poetry once, but that is another story...
