Something a little different. Today, my interview with Joan Mankoo. Joan is a member of the Thames Valley churches of Christ and a qualified counsellor.

I asked her to write down some tips on how to look after ourselves and other people during this period of stress and isolation. She penned a very helpful one page tip sheet which you can download above.

In the interview she expands on her thinking regarding why it’s important to look after ourselves and then how we can help other people.

I thoroughly recommend Joan’s sensitive, kind and faith-filled approach.
