'I would like to say a big 'Thank you' to Hannah for being so informative and kind on the course that I attended. I found it to be so helpful in dealing with anxiety and it made me realise that even when we are struggling with 'mental health' there is so much out there to help with getting back to leading a fuller life.' - K x.

Starting a Business

'The DDCIL Wellbeing Group was very happy with the event delivered by Hannah.  The disabled people present found the session inspiring and thought provoking.  The handouts were practical and useful and there was plenty of time to ask questions and relate the topics to people’s own life experience.  Thank you Hannah.'
