Writing and Reading

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:

  • 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 spaceswhich is part nature travelogue, part psychological meanderings, part an exploration of my fascination with ancient Britain.
  • I’m also exploring my own and others’ attitudes to death and dying. I’m hosting Death Cafes, and writing a personal memoir about the death of my father last year.

 

If you are interested in my writing, then apart from this website and my blog the following links take you to material published in recent years:

 

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.
