It is no secret that I have been struggling on and off with my mental health for quite a long time.

It's time to talk about those types of therapies, what worked for me and what didn't, and answering that big question a lot of people seem to have: NHS therapy or Private therapy, which is better?

Where have I been? Finishing uni, losing my brother, what's next?




It has been a hot minute since I last sat down to blog. In fact, if you follow me on social media you may have noticed that I have been quieter than usual on there too. So I thought I would take the time to give an update of sorts, so grab a cuppa, it could be a long one.
