I believe that writing is a very powerful tool, not only for telling stories, but in helping us to process our experiences, and put into words that which feels wordless.

Writing can be used to express and offload how we feel, or it can be used to craft what we want to say into a poem, a song, or a piece of narrative prose that takes us on a journey.

I have trained in creative writing, songwriting and journal therapy and would love to show you how you can use these methods too. I’ve also been researching different writing therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Writing Therapy (developed by Arnold Van Emmerik), which is a method that can be used as a trauma therapy.

Therapeutic and Expressive writing course

Starting May 2021

I will shortly be offering a Therapeutic and expressive writing course which will aim to offer a specific method for offloading and processing events and experiences or worries. I will show you the main theories of expressive writing and introduce you to some fresh new research on emotions and how to notice and tolerate them. We’ll then move onto a specific technique for offloading and then processing experiences, events and emotions. We’ll also experiment with sound and vision as enhancers to our processing.

if you are interested in the course do let me know by adding your name to my mailing list here, or send me a message below. I’ll be in touch as soon as the course is ready – which should be early May.

Daily journaling

Daily expressive writing is my way of processing and organising my thoughts and feelings, but I also enjoy the craft of writing too. I find that when I am involved in a creative writing task, the ‘morning pages’ help me to stay focused and on track.
