About me:

I’m Shannon, I’m 20 years old. I’ve been living with mental illnesses since I was a little child after my mum passed away. I lost my voice when I was nine but when I was about 19 I started to talk about how I was feeling and my voice started to come back slowly from mental illness. I am an award winning mental health blogger. I am not trained professionally as an councillor but I am awesome at listening and listening is the best skill you need when you or someone else is having an mental health crisis. I don’t judge. I always start of my sessions. Explaining the objectives of the sessions and the rules of each session. 

I hope to see you at my sessions 🙂 

Much Love, 

Shannon Diana xx
