Poetry Therapy & Creative Writing

I have always kept a journal, and turned to writing and poetry in times of difficulty. The power of words and images have brought me solace, relieved confusion and helped me feel less alone. The author Jeanette Winterson has described fiction and poetry as 'medicines' which can help us heal and discover our own truth. Reading and writing poetry, journaling and expressive writing can all be enormously helpful in supporting us through difficult times and enabling us to listen to our own wisdom and to change.

I use a range of expressive writing tools with clients who wish to explore this healing art form as a part of their own journey.
