I am sure you will find a lot of help and support on here. I certainly have!
I can say from experience that with encouragement you receive on here it is possible to progress quickly with dressing. I have at times been too proud or shy to ask others for advice, that was a mistake and as the ladies have great collective wisdom and individual warmth.
Like you I am from the UK, living in East Surrey. If I can be of help please feel free to message me.
I wish you all the best,
