About Hey Sigmund.
Because sometimes the only diagnosis is ‘human’.
Every day there are stunning new insights into the human mind and the way we work, love, play, behave, relate, think and feel. We are learning more and more about what it means to be human, and how to master the art. Now more than ever, anybody who is any version of human has something to gain from the science of psychology.
This website contains the latest research and news in psychology. It attempts to bring psychology into the mainstream, unfolding the brilliance that happens within the scientific realm. We will explain what it all means and why it matters.
Some parts will be immediately relevant to your life, some parts less so but psychology is such a fascinating relevant science that at the very least you will have some excellent fodder for dinner table conversations.
The best of us is already in us, sometimes found, sometimes waiting to be. This website provides the tools to uncover what is waiting patiently beneath our skin to be discovered, or to make a life that is already beautiful, even more so.
I hope you enjoy the readings and find courageous, daring and simple ways to incorporate them into your life.
About the Author – Karen Young.
Karen has worked as a psychologist in private practice, in organisational settings, lectured and has extensive experience in the facilitation of personal growth groups. Her Honours degree in Psychology and Masters in Gestalt Therapy have come in handy at times.
She has had her work published on various international sites including The Good Men Project, The Huffington Post UK, The Mighty, Your Tango, Yahoo Health and Thought Catalog. She has also been a regular contributor to Parenting Magazine in New Zealand.
She has two children and two stepchildren and lives in Australia. Experience has taught her that people can do amazing things with the right information, psychology has something for everyone, jargon doesn’t, everyone has a story to tell, short bios are the longest to write, nobody has it all figured out and the best people to be around are the ones who already know this.
One of the best things about being human is that pretty amazing things can happen when we share ‘stuff’.
This is a big part of what Hey Sigmund is about. We are always very grateful to anyone who wants to share thoughts, feedback or stories through comments or emails – in fact, we love it.
If you have a story to tell head over to our And Talking About It page for guidelines on how to make this happen.
