Evidence shows having someone to talk to helps. It turns out the theory that informs the listening is less significant.
Therefore, the right philosophy is not the answer. I do not promise it. Least useful of all is prescribed belief.
I have no philosophical agenda, no allegiance to secure, no theoretical drum to beat. I have no method to declare in advance. I can only promise my caring attention. Those I can help, I will.
I will begin where you are, if you can show me the way there. To start by listening — it means that the philosophy we begin with comes from you.
But let me say this: with words we weave our world and our worries. Talk can also liberate. Yet there are knots of words no words can untie.
