  1. Does a sex life matter after 50?

    do we need a man in our 50s image?
    Article by Cat Williams Ingrid Tarrant has been interviewed by the Daily Mail about her endorsement of celibacy at the age of 59. Ingrid says “we are all conditioned to think we can’t function as complete people without a red-hot sex life. But after a bit I stopped missing it and these days I don’t think about it at all. I have never felt more liberated. I think it works the same way as with food. If you have three square meals a day, you find that you are perpetually hungry. If you are starved of food, you lose your appetite. That’s how I see the meaning of the term ‘sex-starved’. You don’t have it and as a result you’re not hungry for it any more. You...

    Woman at Christmas
    Article by Cat Williams Cat Williams, a relationship counsellor, Army wife, mother, writer, blogger, and the author of ‘Stay Calm and Content No Matter What Life Throws At You’ shares her thoughts. Christmas can be one of the most stressful times of the year, particularly if we have family members who don’t really get on with each other! What is the secret to staying calm throughout the festive season, no matter what it brings? The secret of a calm and happy Christmas is self-esteem. We each experience stress when we perceive the demands being placed on us as exceeding our ability to cope with them. Christmas bring stress because of how much we expect from ourselves.  We might be aiming to find perfect presents for everyone, to wrap them perfectly, write cards on time, prepare perfect food...
  3. Fab after Fifty: How to build a successful new relationship in your 50s and beyond

    praise is....
    Article by Cat Williams ‘How to build a successful new relationship’. Cat Williams, relationship counsellor and author of ‘Stay Calm and Content’ explores. As a relationship counsellor I have explored first-hand how relationships develop and mature, and why they sometimes run into problems.  I am often asked if there is a ‘secret’ to building and maintaining a strong midlife relationship.  Here is my answer… The first thing we need to recognise is that when we first meet someone and see them as a potential ‘love interest’ we are immediately assessing how that person makes us feel about ourselves.  We might like their appearance, or how interesting they are to talk to, but only if they appear to like us as well, or ‘make us feel good’ in some way,...
  4. How to be an ideal mother-in-law

    Article by Cat Williams An ‘interfering mother-in-law’ is one of society’s favourite stereotypes.  The term ‘mother-in-law’ sounds negative and criticising even before anything is known about the individual themselves. Mothers and daughters-in-law often find it particularly difficult to get along.  What is the secret of those who can overcome the stereotype, and build a friendship with their ‘DIL’? “fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” —Shirley MacLaine The first thing we need to recognise is that we pose a uniquely powerful threat to the self-esteem of our daughter-in-law.  As an older woman we could potentially pass judgement on her as a woman, a wife, and a mother, because we might feel that we have ‘been there, done that’, and feel that we either ‘got it right’ or can advise...
  5. Do women re-think their relationship when they turn 50?

    Article by Cat Williams As a relationship counsellor I would say yes, women do re-evaluate and re-think their relationships in their 50’s and 60’s because it is often a time in our lives when we feel a new sense of freedom. Our children are likely to have ‘flown’ and we might therefore be able to make new choices and might have new needs and expectations.  I think there is also a sense of responsibility to ‘make the most of life’ before health issues might concern us, or grandchildren might limit us, and so on.  We might have a sense of fear that if we don’t ‘get things right’ we might have regrets later on, or we might be trying to compensate for regrets we have about the past. It can...
  6. Can you overcome and move on from a cheat or affair?

    Article by Cat Williams Can relationships survive an affair? Relationships expert Cat Williams explores…. The real reason why affairs happen. Before we choose to have an affair, whatever the circumstances, we are experiencing a period of low self-esteem. We usually know that an affair is probably not a good idea but we don’t know how to fix or improve our current relationship, so if an opportunity to have an affair is presented, we may take it to feel better about ourselves. Being wanted by someone else, especially secretly, gives a great boost to our self-esteem. What happens next? Once the affair is disclosed or discovered, it usually has an impact on the self-esteem of both partners. The person who had the affair usually feels even worse about himself or herself than ever, and...
