About Monkey Minds


My name is Katy and I’m 33. I am from the north east of England but am currently in Thailand where it’s warm. I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression for nearly twenty years.

I’m writing this blog to help myself and others – both those who are suffering with mental illness, and those who aren’t but would like to understand a bit more about what it’s like to have a crowd of monkeys and their extended families living in your brain.

I am an English language and academic skills teacher and I like rock climbing, singing, learning languages and travelling.
