Waving anxiety on from the sidelines 150 150 Jane Evans

    When we are trapped in a cycle of feeling OK for a bit, then anxious, then obsessively, repetitively thinking about things over and over, it can seem as if there is no way out. We become convinced that the ‘thoughts’ are valid, in fact we make it our business to seek evidence that they…

A Voice for the voiceless victims of domestic violence and abuse – what Women and Children Post Domestic Violence need everyone to understand 150 150 Jane Evans

For over 2 decades I have worked, sometimes knowingly, and at other times, unknowingly with women and children living with, or beyond domestic violence. I have worked with a very few male victims so I don’t feel I can really be their voice as I don’t have the depth of experience but hopefully they will…

How do I get to do what you do? 150 150 Jane Evans

How, what, where, when?
