Really, REALLY delighted to have been invited back again onto RADIO GATEWAY 97.8FM on Thursday 28th September 2023 at 11.30am GMT !

Talking “All Things Autism” with Dr Anna Kennedy OBE and Aston Avery with the focus on tips for well-being and mental health.
Looking forward to sharing with you all.


Absolutely delighted to have been invited by the prestigious International Federation of Aromatherapists to give a 2 hour webinar talk at 7pm on Wednesday 25th October 2023.

The talk will be all about Indian Head Massage and therapeutic touch to the back, shoulders, arms, hands, neck, head and face as well as ways to have fun with it and mix things up a bit so that even the touch averse and non verbal can interact and be empowered.

These techniques will also be explained and explored on a proven neuroscientific level which I always find so exciting !

I’m so looking forward to meeting everyone.

West Somerset Free Press 8th July 2022

Featured in my regional newspaper… a lovely article about my Autism Hero Award, my prolific work for autism and other neurodivergences as well as for all sorts of other people who have no voice, whether thats because of a neurodiversity or their situation.

As just a really ordinary lady who had nothing at all, I hope this article brings some real and positive light and hope.

The only time I ever answer personal questions in interviews is if I feel from my heart that it will bring choice and empowerment to those millions who feel they have none.

We all get dealt cards in life.
It is what we do with them that counts.

I am not defined by what happened to me.
I defined IT.
And you can do the same.


Tune into Women’s today at 1pm GMT or 1am GMT to hear my lovely interview with the fantastic Anna Kennedy OBE about All Things Autism ; ADHD, PDA, neurodivergence and neurodiversities and all the gorgeous deeply beneficial therapies you can share.
This interview will bring so much help and hope to those living or working with neurodivergence.
We also chat about my recent Autism Hero Award.

Thank you SO MUCH Anna for having me on the show again.
I am beyond proud to be the Wellbeing Ambassador for the charity, AnnaKennedyOnline.
I loved it !!
