Where the Science of Psychology Meets the Art of Being Human

And Talking About It

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 love conversation and we’d love you to join.

We all have a story to tell. Every single one of us. Everyone has loved, lost and learnt. It’s part of being human. Nothing feels better than hearing from somebody else who’s been there. If you have a story to tell or some wisdom you’ve picked up along the way, we would love you to share it here – you’ll never know how many people will be needing to hear exactly what you have to say. Conversations make a difference. We are happy to consider any submission that fits under our banner of being human … that should be broad enough for you!

The integrity of the information on Hey Sigmund is really important to us. Because of this, we only publish guest articles that are written from expertise or personal experience. If you work in the area you are writing about or have personal experience with the issue you are discussing, we’d love to hear from you. We don’t publish articles written by representatives of SEO companies for the purpose of providing backlinks.

The high standards we yearn to achieve, but seldom do. Why are the standards there in the first place? Why do we expect so much from ourselves?

My darkest bipolar episode. And Music (by Sarah Jickling)

At sixteen, my best friend and I started a band. We were two quiet, nerdy, never been kissed teenagers who wanted desperately to have an adventure. Though we technically lived in the retirement town of White Rock, British Columbia, we spent most of our time in our own worlda world that from an outsiders point of view could only be described as very cute

7 Things You Should Never Say to the Parent of a Highly Sensitive Child (by Megan Stonelake)

Have you ever met a kid who always seems to dissolve into a puddle after being corrected, even gently? Do you know a child who can’t stand socks that have a seam or shirts with tags? Do you know a child who seems to intuit your thoughts and feelings before even you can identify them? These are all features of sensitivity, a personality trait found in about 20% of the population.
