About the Author:

Marianne Richards holds a Masters Degree in Mental Health Practice, Diploma in Ericksonian Solution-Focused Therapy and Certificate in Behavioural Family Therapy as well as media and adult education qualifications. She worked in private practice and the NHS for two decades, gaining many testimonials from patients and Doctors. In 2000 she was offered her first publishing contract and received professional acclaim for her layman guides mental illness. After being bullied out of the NHS, Marianne was diagnosed with clinical depression and had a breakdown. During this time, she was diagnosed with high functioning autism (Asperger Syndrome), stress having triggered the florid symptoms which enabled diagnosis. These experiences now inform her writing and were the reason behind her setting up InspirationWorks4U.
