Hi Sue - good to hear from you and I'm so pleased that you feel my being on the UKPT trustee board is a positive development. A couple of things have occurred to me from your posting so I hope you don't mind if I ask you a couple of things - first of all you say that you often think it is difficult to share our problems on this discussion board - is that a comment about discussion boards in general or do you find this one particularly difficult to use? The other thing you mention is that you don't feel able to attend a workshop - I'm not trying to persuade you to do anything which would make you uncomfortable, but I wondered if you might be more likely to consider attending a workshop if we held a female-only workshop? It is one of our big hopes to be able to hold a female workshop in due course. But I appreciate that workshops may not be for everyone so please don't feel bad if you still don't feel it would be right for you (I took a very long time to come around to it myself!). I really would be very interested in your views.
