Why do you want to start a meetup? And what can people expect at your events?: To meet like-minded people. I have always had an interest in self help stuff and it is the area I gravitate to in any library or book shop. I have studied hypnotherapy, NLP and mindfulness. I have also worked as a volunteer for both the Samaritans and Cruse. People can therefore expect to be listened to in a non judgemental way.

What's your favourite self-help book, and why?: That changes over time but I have chosen to be pictured with 'Happy for No Reason' as it promotes self-acceptance. I have not taken a conventional route through life and this helps me in terms of being ok with that.
