Many of the messages I received in my life seemed to add up to one thing – I would never amount to anything. This made me believe that I had to act a certain way to be loved. Be a certain type of person to fit in. Support this team, join this club. Live my life in a way that made others like me more. I spent most of my life feeling as if I was not good enough. This resulted in me feeling isolated. The worst part was that I didn’t feel I could tell anyone, as I didn’t trust anyone enough to not judge me or criticise me.
Once I worked out what was really going on for me, once I got the help I needed, I realised that talking about feelings honestly was not a weakness, not something to be ashamed of. This led me into wanting to help other people who were struggling, to let others experience the change that talking can bring.
I’ve told you a little bit about me, maybe I can help you.

I have volunteered with both a cancer support charity, and a social housing organisation, providing mental health support for those deemed to be in need.
