My secret talent:
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I am caring, compassionate, empathic, experienced, down to earth, warm, endlessly curious and fascinated by people (i.e. nosy), encouraging, humorous, and according to a good friend of mine – I ask good questions and have a good ‘hmmm’.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
If I’m not looking after myself then I’m absolutely and completely unable to be of any use to anyone else. I therefore treat my sleep like an endangered species. I also eat healthily, prioritise time with my family and friends, and exercise daily.
My life motto:
‘If I can stop one heart from breaking, I have not lived in vain’ (Emily Dickinson)
