For everybody retirement is a period of change, and, in consequence, it has its challenges. As it approaches many people start by sorting out their finances. But there are plenty of other issues to consider and it soon becomes clear that a successful retirement isn’t just about money.

 I was very pleased to have had the opportunity to speak to Dr Julian Edge to answer some of your questions. Julian is a fully qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy; he regularly does work, as a counsellor, for us at Age UK Manchester.

 There are 4 short interviews. Each are about 4 minutes long.
