I have been a writer since I could manipulate a writing instrument. As a child it began as a strategy for my own healing and personal development – though I doubt I was conscious of it as such then.
I have written and been published professionally as an educator, facilitator, workplace trainer and psychotherapist. Currently, I have three ongoing projects:
- I am a volunteer storyteller for https://www.sharphamtrust.org/ writing pieces about their work in mindfulness; in conservation and the natural world; and anything else Sharpham-related, such as the delicious wine and cheese produced on the estate.
- As an amateur naturalist, I write and proofread on a variety of nature/wildlife themes for conservation organisations.
- I am writing a book (Meandering in Albion: journeys to Britain’s wild places and ancient spaces) which is part nature travelogue, part psychological meanderings, part an exploration of my fascination with ancient Britain.
If you are interested in my writing, then as well as this website and my blog the following links take you to material published recently:
I also facilitate therapeutic creative writing groups, and work via email with individuals exploring therapeutic creative writing for themselves.
I write for the fun of it, the hell of it, and because I cannot not.
