In an ideal world we'd all be taught how to take care of our mental health in school and have free, easy access to counselling when we need it. I know this is not the case for many, so my small way of helping is to create affordable resources to help you educate and support yourself.

I'm always adding to what's available, so far I have created:

  • Mindful Walking Guide (5 page PDF)

  • Mindful Walking Audio Guide

  • Managing Change workshop

  • RAINN kit

  • 'Guide to Keeping on Top of Shit' - Window of Tolerance explanation (PDF)

I used to be a bookseller and I'm still a keen reader so I'm a big advocate for reading for wellbeing, wether that's to educate yourself or simply for pleasure. You can visit my book recommendations on Bookshop.org where I have categories on all things psychology and wellbeing as well as fiction recommendations.
