In this episode Kate discusses blended families and is joined by  Sophia Rantzau. Sophia is a qualified counsellor and has worked with many parents, children and blended families. Having her very own blended family, Sophia honestly shares her “wins” and “mistakes” as a step-mum in the book. She does this along with providing guidance, reassurance and a bit of humour to enable you to enjoy your “wins” too.

Sophia lives in Storrington, West Sussex with her husband and their two cats Cotton and Bud! Her Stepson now refers to her as “the best stepmum in the world”!
