    Do we really need a life's purpose?

    Do we really need a life's purpose?

    In this episode I look at the idea of having a life's purpose. How important is it? What if you don't know what your life's purpose is? And what if you have been unable to achieve your dreams? I also discuss what I loved about the movie Soul and what we can learn from ACT (Action Commitment Therapy).

    Books recommended The Happiness Trap by Russ Harris.

    In this episode I discuss my experience of grief, describe some of the tasks of grief and the dual process model.
