I had spent a lot time in professional working environments working with statutory homeless. This included many diagnosed psychopaths/sociopaths. I had worked alongside mental health teams, had trained for and worked with victims of domestic violence. I completed a course at University in Counselling and another course in life coaching.

  1. Thank you so much for reblogging my work. I also have PTSD (those are the days that I don’t post) – mine was caused when my daughter died, it was quite horrific and I thought i would die too (I couldn’t escape). It is the most horrible thing to go through. Has been part of my life for the past 3.5 years. I literally lost 3 years of my life to it. Will be interested to read your posts! 🙂
