An unhealthy mind, even in a healthy body, will ultimately destroy health

I have worked as an educational psychologist in Manchester and Oldham. I am a former secondary teacher of modern languages, special needs, head of year and European tour guide. I am a specialist practitioner for post 16 educational psychology. I am part of the Central Manchester CAMHS Social Communication Assessment and Intervention Team (SCAIT) and I particularly enjoy running post-diagnosis workshops and drop-in advice sessions for the parents of children with autism. I am often in awe of the challenges parents face and the ingenuity and resilience they display. I also enjoy providing consultation and training to teachers about the needs of children with autism. I run courses for educational professionals, have designed and delivered training for the police and conferences for young people. She also contribute to Educational Psychology and PGCE training courses. Abigail have also worked with fostering and adoption teams. I have parented three teenagers. I am a school governor and in her free time, enjoys tennis, running and windsurfing.

By host - CiaranThompson
DESPITE living with severe forms of cerebral palsy, a husband and wife duo are taking the bodybuilding world by storm. Wade McCrae Washington and BJ Glaze - both now 47 - were diagnosed with the disorder at birth, but they have never stopped dreaming big. The married couple also live with scoliosis, a rare spinal disease, which adds to their difficulty to perform everyday tasks. It was more than 20 years ago since Wade and BJ met at college in Houston, Texas, where they now live together - and they haven’t looked back since. Quitting has never been an option in their world and that’s largely down to their expert trainer, Tina Chandler, and motivator, Carl Ducena, two people that have played a pivotal role in their lives. Since his first training session with Tina, Wade has gone on to become a World Champion in the Adaptive Bodybuilding Division – an extraordinary achievement. Wade and BJ now help Tina and Carl with their ‘Normal To Be Fit’ campaign, where they help to inspire others to get fit despite living with a disability.
