A Heart-Driven Leader Sharing Her Wellbeing Foundations to Help Others

In 2013, while dealing with the death of my Mum, I started a blog (formerly called ‘The Smile Diary’) in order to help make sense of my thoughts and feelings. I felt lost, confused, and overwhelmed with both grief and an intense fear and confusion around growing up and navigating my life going forward.

Over the years since, I have been on a significant personal journey to build positive wellbeing from the ground up, figuring out how I can take better care of my wellbeing every day. I am still a work in progress (aren’t we all!?) but I have gained insight, experience, and a passion to share what I have learned with others.

In November 2017 I was given the chance to run a wellbeing talk with a group of year 9 students at a school in Preston, and Your Book Begins workshops were born. I have worked with groups of students, employees in offices, and at events across the country. As a public speaker on the topics of wellbeing, motivation, and confidence, I have given talks to a wide variety of audiences; from small groups to over 700 attendees at a conference in the London Olympic Park.

  2. I so very much agree. I am surprised when others are surprised that someone is struggling with depression or addiction or having suicidal thoughts. I myself had tried to commit suicide 3 times, but had failed. I thank God for the strength that He’s given me to keep going on each day. Your blog will be a help to many. Good job!
