I’m a working mum with two grown up boys and one growing up little lady. In a previous life, I worked as a lawyer in London. I moved to Belgium 25 years ago – I’d always felt I was a French speaker at heart….and France wouldn’t have me without the French (true).
After years of hard grit: watching French films; eating my way through French menus; listening into other people’s conversations; and generally making endless mistakes until my kids came along and refused to talk to me in English……I now dream in French, in Belgium. In Brussels to be precise. My « ville de coeur » (not the EU institutions bit) and adopted home.
I’ve spent much of the last 25 years helping people deal with their struggles and facing down my own challenges. Counselling is still very much my day job but as I embrace the second half of my life, I want to be sure to make it the best half : share some of the wisdom that has come with my winters and keep the laughter alive.
