In 1986, she embarked on a series of studies to become one of the first natural medicine practitioners in Scotland. She eventually became a tutor for a number of community projects, a women’s prison, and the Open Studies and Summer Schools of Stirling University from 1993 to 1999.
In 1999, she relocated to Donegal, Ireland – the home of her ancestors. Four years later she succumbed to a mystery illness which was eventually diagnosed as fibromyalgia.
Stopping the World forced Brigid to reassess her life, and creative writing became a significant part of her healing process.
She retrained in organic horticulture and taught this subject in schools until 2016.
“Watching the Daisies – Life Lessons on the Importance of Slow” was written to inspire others on their self healing journey.
