This website is for my work in all aspects of writing and the use of poetry especially to promote health and wellbeing.

I work as a writer and poetry therapist, as a mentor-supervisor, teacher and tutor.  My blog looks at poems, books and films and how they relate to daily life.

I am based in Canterbury, Kent, UK.

Workshop with Reinekke Lengelle in Canterbury 18th March 2017

How do you tell the story of your life and work?  What is meaningful for you?  How does your work contribute to the greater good?

I am delighted to be hosting Reinekke Lengelle in Canterbury in March.  She is a long-standing friend and colleague who has made a specialism of using expressive writing as a means of working out our ‘career identity’ which is a way of telling, ‘the story of what is meaningful to me in work and life and how I want to be meaningful to others’.

She will be offering a workshop on Saturday 18th March 2017 at the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury, 10am-1pm.

Full details here.  For booking, please email – places are limited.
