I am co-facilitating a bereavement group early this year (2021) with my colleague Gina Simeonova. We have worked together for some time providing one to one and group support to bereaved people and we are excited to be bringing this online. At the moment we are still in the assessment phase, getting to know potential participants. If you want to know a little bit more about it, have a look here or get in touch with me to book an assessment session for £25.
Creative and expressive writing group for counsellors and therapists
If you are interested in joining a small group of other counsellors and therapists to explore expressive and creative writing as a means to reflecting on your personal and professional development, please get in touch.
Women’s writing circle, fortnightly by zoom: January to March 2021
From January I will be adding a fortnightly evening writing circle on a Thursday night at 7 pm as an alternative to the Friday daytime circle which meets fortnightly from 1 – 2:30 pm. Spaces in both circles are limited to six women only to allow enough space for us to get to know each other and share our writing.
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:
Thursday evening circle: 7 – 8:30 PM on 14 and 28 January, 11 and 25 February, 11 and 25 March
Friday daytime circle: 1 – 2:30 PM on 15 and 29 January, 12 and 26 February, 12 and 26 March
Please contact me on email@example.com or 07875 403 188 if you would like to register your interest now.

Writing for Wellbeing at The Flamingo Centre, Westbury on Trym September/ October 2019
I was at the Flamingo Centre in September and October 2019 with three writing for wellbeing workshops. We used words and images to stimulate our own creative responses to the changes going on in us and in the world around us.
