Getting emotional consent before sharing your problems
By Kellie Scott
Excerpt from article:
"Because of the pandemic and our restriction of face-to-face contact, we're losing a lot of clues and cues when communicating," says psychologist Meredith Fuller.
"We don't get that feedback where they look stressed or frazzled or upset — so it doesn't even occur to us to stop for a minute and ask: is this a decent time?"

The upsides for women when looks inevitably change
Excerpt from article: Melbourne psychologist and author Meredith Fuller, who regularly works with women in their 40s and 50s who are struggling to deal with their diminishing youthfulness, agrees.
"I get them to start thinking about all their other attributes or unused parts of themselves that perhaps they've been neglecting," Meredith says.
She also works with clients to help rebuild their confidence by getting them to focus on their health and fitness, and even on developing their own personal sense of style, to help them appreciate their own "inner and outer beauty".
"There's nothing more beautiful than seeing someone who is full of vitality, no matter what their age. And that's what I try to encourage my clients to strive for. To find that meaning that will give them that vitality," she says.

'Oh no she didn't! Advice on 'Working with Bitches' interview
Dominance displays, posturing, submissive behaviour — sound like anything you’ve seen at the office? Psychologist Meredith Fuller specialises in a certain subset of these behaviours — usually exhibited by women — behaviours we all know rather well. Cattiness. Dismissive, snide remarks. Cliques and talking behind people’s backs. Most of us associate this kind of stuff with high school, but it doesn’t end there. It can make your life miserable at work. Fuller’s written a book about this with the eye-catching title of 'Working with Bitches'.
