About Me

I was born and bred in Manchester where I’ve lived for 31 years. I grew up in North Manchester but I now live in Urmston in South Manchester, with my silly husband Kov and our cheeky son Archie. We also have an overweight cat who doesn’t know she’s a cat.

Applying Patience & Balance for better wellbeing by Dani Bolser

My kids expect everything in an instant (or at least the very next day from Amazon Prime!) Questions like, “can I have this?”, “can we order it online?” and my favourite, “can we go to the shops and get me some new trainers?” (at 8pm!?) This whole lifestyle with no patience and everything is available at the click of a button suddenly started to take over my life. That and the constant screen time.

Children's Wellbeing

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
