Gillian Bridge

Gillian Bridge is a qualified teacher of English, an addiction therapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy who has taught, lectured and coached in the field of brain language and behaviour and has also worked in prisons and on Harley Street. Language is her medium, neuroscience her fascination, and she longs to understand what makes us humans human. Her previous book The Significance Delusion – essentially a search for the meaning of meaning – is very much the outcome of that curiosity, but Sweet Distress brings her deep love of family into the equation. What wouldn’t we do, think or question in order to protect them?
