I am Emma O’Connor, Aussie in Edinburgh, mother of 2 not so little boys, chefs wife and author by accident. I am on a mission to make the world a happier place… Because life is for Happiness.
As is often the case, our journey to happiness began in difficulty. In 2014, at the age of just 9, our son became anxious. His anxiety was so debilitating he was unable to attend school, visit friends or go to clubs…. and on some days just getting out the front door was a real challenge. I refused to believe the accepted vernacular, that he would ‘always suffer’ from anxiety, and would just have to learn how to manage it… Given his age, his entire life seemed a very long time to suffer! So I started to research other ways.
