In the late '80s upped sticks and moved to beautiful New Zealand. There were hiccup of course. Moving to the other side of the world is exciting but also very daunting – I’m glad to say this is now my home.
My variuos chages in career have given me vast experience and a broader outlook on life. I began a BA in Sociology (never finished, I admit) and have papers in sociology, cultural anthropology, human behaviour, adolescence, religious studies (Christianity, Judaism and Muslim), and history on Families Through the Ages. I also have a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and a TESOL qualification. But what really fascinates me is how the mind works: why do people do the things they do, what makes them tick, etc, what is their background, their thoughts and dreams, the dragons they hide from even themselves.
I have two wonderful adult children who now live in Australia, and a madcap, energetic Shih Tzu terrier with whom I enjoy many long, varied walks.
In October 2016 I completed an Open University Course in Script Writing. Details are available at https://www.futurelearn.com/statements/mjuinbe
