Blog - Manchester Mind Matters

Welcome to my blog!

Hello!

It’s in these pages that I get the chance to talk about the things which I think matter in mental (and physical) health.  Different approaches, new ideas and current news on all things which work towards improving our well-being.

It’s a chance for me to be less formal and more personal so that you get a sense of who I am as a counsellor and supervisor.

Views expressed are my own and my style is light-hearted and informal.  I take the issues seriously but not myself.

So please read on….
