I live and work in London.
I lived in the USA for 10 years and served in the American Army as a combat medic for four of them.
I am now a trainer in self-esteem and confidence building, assertiveness, and anxiety management, for CoolTan Arts, a mental health creative arts organisation . I am passionate about the work I do and am currently building my own business as a trainer/speaker/author so that I can work with more people to reclaim their lives by helping them to "extract the poison from the past and enjoy playing in the present."
I am also a trained support planner with 2 years experience, and train new support planners.
I am writing an ebook on how to improve your self esteem and live free from fear following abuse whether in childhood, a relationship, or by being bullied. I write out of my own experience of abuse and If it helps just one person I'll be happy. It is called -
"BITE THE SNAKE" anti-venom for the soul.
I also write a blog http://www.thetiltedroom.com and it is here you will find details about the ebook.
