"Practice makes perfect"


How often do we hear that phrase? Practice is how we learn to play a musical instrument, throw a bullseye in darts, learn to skate, run faster, jump higher, dance better – the secret behind all these skills is to practice. The more we practice, the better our progress.

For anyone who has attended a UK Paruresis Trust shy bladder workshop you'll know that the last activity of the workshop is planning: planning how to put into practice the knowledge and skills you've learned during the workshop: taking the things you've learned and fitting them into your everyday life in a way which will enable you to keep learning, keep practicing, and keep improving.

At the workshop we strongly encourage you to keep a diary of your progress. Be honest with your diary – note the problems, but note the successes too. It can be all too easy to focus on the negatives.

One man who has attended both a Beginners and a Follow up workshop has taken the art of keeping a paruresis diary to extremes. But take a look at his post on our forum and see what his dedication to practicing has achieved

Impressive isn't it! Karl's dedication to diary-keeping is remarkable and has, without a doubt, contributed to what he calls his "incredibly successful year". How much would you like to be able to call 2024 an incredibly successful year on December 31st? Practicing can make a huge difference.

Practice doesn't make perfect - practice makes progress. And progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be – able to pee wherever and whenever you want.
