So who am I and why should you spend your precious time on this little spinning planet hanging around my site?
Well, just like you, I'm trying to make some sense of this world. This crazy world!
Since I was a child I have been fascinated by the telling of stories. In my spare time as a kid, I read relentlessly and wrote books, stories and poems. I then went on to study storytelling through a decade long career in television and radio; writing scripts in every spare moment that I had.
As a teenager and in my twenties I experienced depression and anxiety which, at the time, were incredibly traumatic but ultimately helped me to find a path of 'spirituality' - for want of a better word. I've passionately and consistently followed that path ever since.
It's been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs, ordinary moments and extraordinary moments, and the general realisation that the most EXTRAordinary moments were hidden in the most ordinary moments.
As a 'grown-up' I have published several of my own children's illustrated poetry books.
I have spent much of the last ten years studying the power of storytelling and how it can help people to become happier, freer and more creative versions of themselves. It was a huge part of my own transformation. I've also worked with creatives, businesses and brands to help them understand their purpose, and to tell their story in powerful and moving ways.
I work with people in a group setting and a 1-to-1 basis to help them learn to find their stories, craft their stories, tell their stories and share their stories.
I also help people to write their books - helping them from the very first seed of an idea, right through to the final production stages of the book. I can offer the full consultancy service from start to finish, or just act as a consultant on a more flexible basis.
Hopefully, in some way, through the sharing of my journey others can learn that in the crafting and telling of our stories we share some valuable and universal truths, and that the healing power of stories can educate us, inspire us, empower us and unite us.
If you are interested in learning how to tell your story or write your book, then you can book a 1 to 1 session with me via Zoom and we can discuss a plan of action.
Prices for a longer term plan can be discussed based on the size of the project.
Please call me to arrange a session.
