'I have some friends with mental illness, and some who really struggle with life, and it so often seems that their problems stem from their early childhood experiences.

I worked as a GP and saw so much heartache because of poor attachment with parents that struggled with parenting, mainly because they had never known what it was to be loved by their parents.

If there is anything we can do to break such inter-generational transfer of suffering we should prioritise it. And this is why I want to be an ambassador for the WAVE trust.'
