Favourite Things: ‘I marvel at eclectic mix of industry and nature’

Louise Oliver is a former head of sixth form that quit her job to help South Yorkshire’s young people buckling under the psycholocical stress of school life which peaks at exam time. 
She retrained as a hypnotherapist after seeing the dramatic effect the practice had on one of her pupils who had become so fearful of failure she was unable to face even crossing the college threshold. 
She also works with adults and specialises in treating anxiety, phobias and panic attacks. Louise Oliver is married and lives in the Bramley area of Rotherham. 
You can find out more about her services at www.louiseoliverhypnotherapy.co.uk

Wildlife Column: Please don’t badger the badger…

Wildlife Column: Please don’t badger the badger…

The badger is one of our most popular and iconic wildlife species and has made a remarkable come-back in our region. Back in the 1970s, this species was nearly extinct across South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. But with legal protection championed through Parliament by former Rother Valley MP Peter Hardy and dedicated support from local badger groups, our largest member of the weasel family regained its position in the local fauna. Indeed, in regional towns and cities badgers have become increasingly urban too – and not infrequent visitors to local gardens. For badger lovers this is all good news.
