What is Writing Coaching?
I work on a one to one basis with everyone from those at the start of their writing journey to experienced writers who want to improve their story telling or get through a blockage. You can arranged for several sessions or I can work with you over a longer period as you complete a novel or a collection of short stories.
I use my extensive experience of working with authors as well as teaching creativity at universities and of course my own personal insights. We can discuss how to create a package suitable for you.
What is creative writing for wellbeing?
This differs from other creative writing coaching in that the focus is on using writing as a therapeutic tool to enable personal development rather than on the quality of the writing itself.
Writing for Wellbeing allows participants to gain insight into themselves and can provide an opportunity for change. People I have worked with have told me how the process was insightful, healing and made a real difference to their lives. It is not about creating a perfect piece of writing, more about letting the writing spill out and working with what arises in a safe and relaxing environment.
I often introduce art into the mix perhaps through creative journalling, where people can work with both words and images. I find that even people who think they have no artistic flair can have an amazing time using a wide variety of materials. Many discover real creative talents they were unaware they had and all find ways of expressing themselves they hadn’t had access to before.
