I am Amanda Green; a self published multi-genre author.

I've written two memoirs (mental health), a self-help book for sufferers of anxiety and depression, and various short fiction including psychological thrillers, suspense and drama - thought provoking, inspiring stories with the theme of overcoming adversities (abuse, homelessness, mental health, relationships and more).

I am a therapeutic Counsellor, MBACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) member, and offer one-to-one counselling sessions (specialising with anxiety issues), plus group and individual personalised Life Writing Workshops in Essex, England.

Aside from writing and social networking, I spend a lot of time with my pets; a big, handsome cat called Titus,

Self-esteem, self-image and summer – how is it for you?

Summer is well and truly on its way. But, for many, summer brings new stressors.

enjoy yourself!

The sun is shining, it’s getting warmer and brighter; what more could we want? Why could it make us feel low and anxious?

How we perceive how we look. Especially when comparing to others.

“We all are bound to those around us by glue, and to our pasts, and sometimes we need to dissolve it... They say you need to pull all the pieces apart and stand back to see how they fit together. Deconstruction. But what if then they can’t be put back together?”

Joe Gande Thanks so much for connecting here on Goodreads Amanda! Glad to be a friend & look forward to reading your reviews and learning more about your work! :)

Louise Hart Hi Amanda, thanks for the friend invite. I look forward to reading your reviews.

Carole Gill hello Amanda,
thanks for adding me!

Amanda Green I like to read and review books - particularly more recently, self published books. You may notice that all my reviews are 3, 4 or 5 stars only and nothing less - the reason? Well, if a book is worth less than 3 stars, for me, I will not read it. That is why I make sure that I am going to like a book before advertising that I am reading it, and if I don't like it within the first 20 pages or so, I will never pick it up again. So, maybe you guys like to review books as one or two stars, but for me, if that is all a book is worth, I just won't read it and therefore could not review it.

Please check out my reviews!

Happy Saturday! :-)
