About Me

My name is Verity. I’m a 30-something, living in Hampshire, UK. Occasionally I may also write about my partner Ash and daughter Feena. If you want a freelance writer for hire in the UK, you’ve come to the right place!

I have suffered with poor mental health since I was roughly 12. My current diagnosis is Borderline Personality Disorder and anxiety.

I started planning Bordering Bears as a way to show people you can have a good life with mental illness.

Bordering Bears is not meant as a form of medical advice. It is meant as a means of educating readers.  Any tips given are based on personal experience. Not all posts are related to mental health.

Please remember that any information given here should not be treated as medically sound. My writing shows how one person may react or feel in a situation. If you have an emergency or feel you are in crisis, please contact a healthcare professional.

I also work as a freelance writer. This allows me to gain an income while looking after myself. Have a look at my SERVICES page for more details.
