A very warm welcome to all readers of The Lady.

I would like to introduce myself as your new agony aunt. In my life, like many, I have had to face various challenges, overcome obstacles and deal with personal grief. Living with my daughter and working full time, I am constantly juggling both work and family life and I feel sure many readers can relate to this.

In this busy world, everyone seems to be chasing around and getting nowhere fast. Wouldn't it be nice to take some time out, sit in a favourite comfy chair, pour a nice cup of tea and have someone to share with whatever is worrying you - well here is your chance to do just that.

Each week I shall be helping you gain a new perspective to whatever your inner thoughts and concerns may be. I aim to make you feel lighter, brighter and to help inspire and encourage you to move forward.

I warmly invite you to contact me at patricia.marie@lady.co.uk and shall look forward to replying to as many problems as possible.

With very best wishes to each and every one of you,

Patricia Marie.
