I am a qualified teacher of law and psychology and tutor A' level students. I am also a writer and I have written articles for magazines such as The Psychologist, Prediction, Natural Health and Kindred Spirit to name a few as well as fiction to People's Friend and Ireland's Own. I also write educational resources for colleges. I am hoping to undertake a PhD this year on exercise addiction and the impact on an individual's life.

I have much empathy and understanding for all things related to psychological illness as I was housebound for many years, have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks, OCD and emetophobia. I appreciate the vulnerability and isolation that exists for such suffers and my goal is to be there in any way I can. One person can make a difference even if it is just a small one smiley

The Early Years When I was 10 years old, Christmas time was magical. I had received so many gifts I just didn’t know what to do with them all. “Put your toys and books away then,” said my mother smiling at my excited expression...
