Description - Trisha - As I am by Trisha Goddard
Brought up in Tanzania and Surrey, Trisha's early career as an air stewardess led to travel writing for magazines and then, when she settled in Australia in the mid-1980s, a new career in television. Soon she was a presenter and roving reporter for the prestigious 7:30 Report, which led to her presenting the prime-time show, Everybody. She then started her own production company before moving to England in 1998 to host her own talk show, Trisha. Apart from her family - husband Peter and daughters Billie and Madison - her two great loves are communication through the medium of her shows and campaigning for a greater understanding of mental health problems. A trained counsellor in conflict resolution, she is vocal about her own mental health problems and actively campaigns for a better understanding and destigmatisation of mental health issues. Sadly, her personal life has not always been as successful as her professional career. Trisha suffered at the hands of a violent father, was abused in her early teens; she then turned to drugs. Struggling with depression and mental health issues, she was married twice before she found happiness with her Australian husband.
