Message from Sam...  Ask Sam

Something many people worry about is the way they look. How we feel about ourselves can have a big impact on our day to day lives – I’d be really interested to hear how your own self-image affects you.
Remember that although I read every letter, I can only answer a few each week

Take care,
Sam
