Writing for well-being

Coaching and mentoring in Creative Writing

About Me:

I now divide my life between the magical Island of Ithaca where I went to walk and write. It’s poetic landscape has taught me so much about giving space and time to my writing and listening to my heart and nature.

I have written since I was eleven. I write plays, stories and poetry. I am a trained facilitator and have taught writing and creativity for schools, colleges, prisons and individuals since 1985 when I received my degree in Community Arts and Education. I have attended advance Creative writing courses at the City Lit and the Arvon foundation and studied the work of Natalie Goldberg and Julia Cameron.

Why these classes

I love writing and I love teaching writing and I want you to write and keep writing for the love of it. So many classes and courses are about critique and come from a place of fear and being good enough. Writing healed me through times of depression and a breakdown. These courses are about writing down the truth, writing from the heart, free from being “good enough”. They are about freeing your imagination, trusting your voice, listening and writing for the sheer joy of writing; facilitating well-being, creativity and acceptance.

Sessions are designed to meet your individual needs and to love your writing; free from judgement.

They include:

  • Writing on themes
  • Writing from the heart
  • Writing your story
  • Release your inner poet
  • Writing from myth
  • Writing for self esteem
  • Mindful writing
  • Walking and Writing
  • Dream and life writing

1/2 hour free taster chat with me to discuss your needs and see if what I offer feels right for you.

If you are happy you then can book your mentoring sessions with me on Skype

Price 55 per hour.
