It's the time of year for giving - and for receiving, of course! We hope you've enjoyed our newsletters throughout this year. We thank all the Hoffman Graduates who have shared their inspiring stories with us. If you have something to celebrate, please let us know so that we can share it with everyone in 2017.
With love from Serena and the Hoffman team x

Sing in harmony


Evelyne Thomas
Do you find yourself playing different roles depending who you're with, whether it's at work, with friends, family or even with your partner? What would life be like if you could be who you're meant to be with no worries about being unmasked, no fears of being a disappointment or letting others down?

Identifying the roles we adopt in childhood can be key to changing behaviour patterns, so that we set ourselves free to express ourselves more authentically. In our latest Hoffman graduate feature, psychotherapist Evelyne Thomas reveals the steps we unconsciously make in our relationship dances and how we can change the tune to one of joy and harmony.

Express yourself


We salute the creativity of Hoffman graduate Anoushka Beazley,  as she celebrates the launch of her debut novel, The Good Enough Mother. This black comedy about a spurned mother is a gloriously dark satire on love and motherhood. 
Anoushka did the Process at Florence House in 2012, and all her hard work and  determination  has paid off as she has just been included in Red magazine's Recommended Christmas Gift Guide. 
Anoushka studied film at the University of Kent and spent six years as an actress before taking an MA in creative writing. Speaking about her experience on the Process, she says;  
'It was like nothing I'd ever encountered before. It's not a quick fix, but it is a way to live separately from the pain of old wounds.'
Whether you're a good enough mother or not, find time to buy a copy of Anoushka's book on her website  here, or read an excerpt from it here.

Share the magic

He may now have stepped down as editor of Attitude magazine, but that doesn't stop Hoffman graduate, writer and author Matthew Todd from continuing to win editorial accolades. Matthew's final issue, which featured an interview with Prince William, has recently won 'Scoop of the Year' at the British Society of Magazine Editor Awards.

Matthew has previously spoken about the Process in Attitude, saying, 
"The most powerful single thing that I did in my ongoing journey of recovery. It was emotional and magical.
