OCCUPATION: CBT Therapist. Previously I have been a social worker, and recently left working for a Local Authority Family Support team, after 30 years in various roles. I am a single parent with a teenage daughter. WHY CO-HOUSING?: I am involved in cohousing because I want to live in an intentional community, with a mix of shared resources and private space, as I age. I feel that living with people, of all ages, will help to keep me connected, energetic, happy and healthy.
