• Let’s find an anxiety charity to support My book first, we make the beast beautiful is selling better than I thought. Which makes me very… relieved. And fulfilled. Off the back of this interest and the wonderful deep conversations it’s spawning, I’m being asked to speak at a number of corporate events, and I’ll also be organising a speaking tour shortly.  I want more
  • If you’re not in the arena getting your ass kicked, I’m not interested We all love Brene Brown, right? Her vulnerability polemic strikes deep, meaningful chords. I’ve met and chatted to her and learned that we both do the “three strikes and we act” thing. I also share her tips for getting real with yourself.

  • Good anxiety apps and sites you need to know about At the back of my new book first, we make the beast beautiful, I promised to share on my site a list of some top apps and sites for anxiety. This is that list.  It’s a simple list because I personally don’t rely on such tech things heavily.

  • Dearest Everyone, I have to back off a bit… Writing and releasing first, we make the beast beautiful has been the most enriching, real experiences of my life. Not one of. The most. I set out to have a better conversation about anxiety and to feel less lonely myself. The dialogue the book has created has delivered this in spades. It’s come from the media, readers who’ve more
