I am a mother, grandmother, partner, author, women’s personal and professional development specialist –  a counsellor and trainer.  My first self-help book, ‘A Mother Apart: how to let go of guilt and find happiness living apart from your child’, published by Crown House, offers emotional support and practical strategies to women living apart from their children.  Please visit my website to find out more www.sarahhart.co.uk

I love walking in the woods, scrambling up mountains, observing nature, cooking, reading, writing, a number of arts and crafts and Tai Chi. I de-stress by doing jigsaw puzzles (go on, try it – you’ll be amazed by their therapeutic ability) and my life would be a lot less enjoyable without Earl Grey tea and cake.
