My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: email@example.com.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
How has being close to someone who has trained and practises psychotherapy affected you?
Very little research has been conducted into the experiences of people close to psychotherapists and I believe this is an important area of inquiry.
I would like to meet and interview people about their experiences with the intention of understanding how being close to a person who has trained and practises psychotherapy impacts the lives of significant others.
I am looking for people who meet the following criteria:
• Partners, children, parents, or siblings of someone practising psychotherapy
• Have lived with the person practising psychotherapy for a period of more than five years during and/or after their training.
• Are over the age of 18 years
Confidentiality all information shared will be treated with absolute confidentiality. All efforts will be made to ensure participants remain unidentifiable in the final report and your privacy respected at all times.
If you agree to participate, then I would interview you for approximately one hour and no more than ninety minutes.
A small koha will be offered in appreciation of participation.
If you think you would like to participate or have any further questions, please contact Jane Tuson firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 716622. I can send a full participation information sheet to you.
Ngā mihi kia koutou katoa

Had to take my daughter to the hospital this evening, suffering severe abdominal pain, after waiting for nearly 2 hours without being seen, we left, there were many, many people who were there before us who had not been seen either. It appears they are severely understaffed with only 1 nurse on the desk when we got there and a line of people. Is this the norm with our health system?
