I have come a long way since my teens/twenties when I was emotionally ‘all-over-the-place’ and very insecure. I wish I could say I never feel insecure or experience self doubt anymore but at least I am a vastly improved version of my younger self in terms of self awareness, mental resilience and knowing what makes me happy.

A tricky childhood and some challenging issues along the way have given me a deeper perspective on life.

This blog is all about the lessons I have learned – personally and professionally, the mistakes I’ve made and the trial and error process of life. Learning all the time!

  • Mandy,
    It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Kyle. I am from America, but one of your blog posts ran across on being approachable. I really enjoyed it and left a comment on the page =) I do have one question. I was wondering how to best share your content? I have a few friends who might benefit from it, but I am not sure how to get it to them.

    Thanks,
    Kyle

      • Mandy,
        Thanks for the reply! I was wondering if you have any articles on achievement and success? Like what does it mean to achieve and what does it have to do with success? I think that would be a really cool topic. If you need any help digging further, or making it specific, let me know. I would love to help in anyway possible.

    Good morning Mandy,

    Just at the start of a new chapter of a journey of recovery. A publisher picked up my book – link above and there’s a web site in development. I see that there are almost no male survivors counselling around my area of West Sussex.

    The Chichester Life Centre offers an umbrella for Christian counsellors, do you know any other organisations that offer support and peer-to-peer accountability?

    Kind regards
    Karl

    • Hi Karl,
      Well done on getting your book published – that’s brilliant! You could try the National Counselling Society for peer to peer supervision/accountability or contact the BACP and they might be able to provide info as well.
      Kind regards
      Mandy X
