My name is Sharon Bull and in September 2013, I set up in self-employment as an inspirational speaker, and lifestyle coach under the name ‘A Compassionate Voice’. Also an author and poet, my mission statement:
to creatively help & inspire others through my own experiences with mental health issues, recovery and well-being.
My inspirational story has caught the attention of the media. I have had features in Woman’s Own, Psychologies, Daily Mirror, Stella Telegraph, Bella and the Daily Express. I am regularly asked to do interviews on radio stations, more recently BBC2’s Jeremy Vine Show.
In July 2017, I published my first book Stripped Bare, and made my debut TV appearance – interviewed by Eammon Holmes and Ruth Langsford on ITV’S This Morning. I have also spent a couple of days with a BBC production team as part of an Inside Out documentary. Aired on Monday 15th January 2018, it was raising awareness to debt and its link to mental health issues.
