My name is Shirley Anstis, and I am a counsellor, therapeutic writer and author.

Welcome to my blog on wellbeing in body, mind and soul. A place to share insights, findings and reviews to help us to live happier and more fulfilled lives as we remember to be living beings, not just doing beings. Comment, share and you can also get in touch with me “Here” .
