@Bee . I'm going to have to watch more of Brooklyn nine nine .. Don't be alarmed, but I haven't watched more than 1 episode... but I'll get on it!!


Thanks @Jess1-RO ! Another good question Smiley Happy 

How does your personal experience impact your work?

Every single one of us has a story, and has things that we have struggled with or continue to. I am no different! I have experienced my little share of human emotion, difficulty and struggle - and it all impacts on my work.
My hope is that it impacts in a positive way - that it allows me to be more compassionate, and understanding - and to remain open to all the different ways that people experience life.
I have a complex chronic illness that I was diagnosed with when I was 8, that has been a big challenge to live with, but has taught me a lot about my own resilience. I have also experienced mental ill-health. I have learnt a lot about resilience, coping, and continuing in the face of struggle, from the many people I have met through my work as a mental health practitioner.

Are you an early bird, night owl or permanently exhausted pigeon?

Love this @gina-RO "I've learnt to trust myself, to believe in myself, and to look after myself. The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one in life to nourish, and work hard to develop. "

OMG! Yes we should bring in Animal AMA! Smiley Very Happy

Are you an early bird, night owl or permanently exhausted pigeon?

That pigeon metaphor is really speaking to me.. I definitely go through stages of being an exhausted pigeon! I have been both sides of the spectrum, but I think my natural rhythm is definitely more of a night owl. I can stay up quite late, and I feel my energy and motivation peak around 6pm and into the eve!
