Hello! My name is Emma, I’m 26 years old and spend my days working in a cafe and selling herbs at a market in Amsterdam. I have had my own history of mental issues, mostly (social) anxiety. I’m happy to say I’ve found ways to deal with it and that I’m feeling very stable now. Hearing stories from people dealing with similar problems helped me through it and I’d love to do the same for others.


In my free time I’m cuddling with my cheeky deaf cat and writing about mental health and gardening, see thisisablog.org. I will be joining LBTS to support events and workshops. Hope to see you soon!
