Well here we go! This is my first blog ever.
It has been an eventful week for me as I took early retirement from my NHS job and although I will still do some bank nursing shifts, I am now able to focus more attention on my own therapies practice.
It can be scary taking risks especially giving up a secure income and leaving valued colleagues behind but this way I will be able to spend more time helping people without the burden of paperwork and management that is now part of NHS life.
People often ask me what made me become a mental health nurse in the first place and the answer may sound a bit corny but it really was to understand people and help them.
