It has been a long time since I have taken the time to write here, Sorry. 

From as early as 2001 having finished my training as a Counsellor, with no money, a job, a beautiful new wife and hopes for the future, I set up a voluntary support service for those suffering as a result of Stress, Anxiety, Trauma, Panic Attacks, Bullying and False Allegation in the workplace and life in general.  20 plus year laters I am still here. Happily married, a father, fatter, balder and I would say wiser but lets say more understanding of the world, which sounds better better than miserable cynic.😉  

In 2002, when blogging was a new and exciting way of sharing knowledge I set up this site, and it was free. The hope then as always, was to try and help those in need.  I still don't have all the answers but will do my best to support people to find their own answers and way through their difficult times.

 "The impact of stress can be felt at all levels and within every walk of life. The negative influences of stress are damaging not only to ourselves, our families, loved ones and business but also to the fabric of society and will continue to do so until this issue is taken more seriously by all who can affect change"

                                                                        M. Reddy Irish Independent 2002 

 Stress is essentially reflected by the rate of all the wear and tear caused by life. although we cannot avoid stress as long as we live,we can learn a great deal about how to keep its’ damaging side-effects, distress, to a minimum.”

Really good blog, very few sites have such a wide range of information on a subject that is neither discussed or addressed as much as it should be.

Keep up the good work, you are building a great community as well with excellent links.

What an insightful article. Dis-tress just as dis-ease. False allegations? - just look at our congressional members and many corporate executives- to much finger pointing and not enough have the stones to admit mistakes. Thanks for your site and this article. All the best to you.

Mark, developing the site in order to give us a place to support each other and make friendships is an incredible achievement. However, above all of this the level of time and support you give to those in need is incredible. You are one in a Million.
