Start the year write, 7 – 8PM on Thursday 7 January

I’d love it if you could join me for a writing workshop to write in the new year. One and a half hours of creative and expressive writing prompts to focus you on the year ahead. £20 per person. You can find more information here.

Creative and expressive writing group for counsellors and therapists

Women’s writing circle, fortnightly by zoom: January dates coming soon

I will be releasing new dates for 2021 for the women’s writing circle soon. For the January start dates, I will be offering two options next year. I will be adding an evening circle on a Thursday night at 7 pm as an alternative to the Friday daytime circle which meets fortnightly from 1 – 2:30 pm.

The aim of the circle is to explore writing as a wellbeing-enhancing activity in the company of other women, it is not a therapeutic group nor is any previous writing experience necessary. All you need is the ability to access the circle by zoom, a pen and a notebook.

You will try some guided writing exercises and have the opportunity to share in a small group of other women that you will get to know over the time we share together. You can sign up for a course of six sessions at a time for £60 for the daytime sessions or £75 for the evening sessions, payable when you book your place.

Dates for the 2021 sessions: COMING SOON. Spaces are limited to eight women only. Please contact me on or 07875 403 188 if you would like to register your interest now.
