Bridget Hargreave is from Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders. She studied Latin at Edinburgh University.
Bridget left Edinburgh for London in 2000 and has stayed there ever since, working in PR and communications in the charity sector and bringing up two sons. In 2015, Bridget published a book about postnatal depression, Fine, Not Fine, charting her own experiences, those of other parents, and sharing insights from mental health professionals. Having retrained as a counsellor, she has a private therapy practice in London.
In 2020, Bridget started up an Instagram profile for her father, Richard Hargreave, an Edinburgh College of Art and EUMC alumnus, who died in 1994. The account was, and is, a way to share Richard’s creative legacy with new audiences and old friends, and to reconnect his loved ones with his inspiration.
