About

My vocation for working with people spans many years, within the expressive arts, education, and personal development industries. I have worked in a diversity of locations, and with people of all ages, and from many backgrounds, cultures and circumstances. 

My work is rooted in informed practice, creativity, and holistic well-being. It is a contribution to promote joy, participation, and meaningful connection towards a more equal, thriving, and compassionate society.

Word Art 3

In addition to work with clients and mentees, freelance work takes me elsewhere.

I am a published poet and writer; a practitioner of  sensory and socially engaged arts; and a tutor/lecturer/trainer in Adult Education settings. I find balance in this busy and demanding life through immersion in the natural world; through adventures in culture and heritage: and with my family and friends. 

My other website, outlining my creative practice, activities and events – including collaborations with others – is here on this link: Mixer of Metaphors 

My qualifications include:

  • Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring
  • Bachelor of Arts (Open)
  • Dip. Literature and Creative Writing
  • Dip. Anatomy, Physiology and Massage Therapy
  • Dip. Psychosexual Therapy
  • and several others in Therapy, Business, Arts and Humanities subjects recognised by the UK Qualifications Curriculum Authority and/or National Qualifications Framework.  

I am a member of the European Council for Mentoring and Coaching, and abide by its values, and by the values of the National Therapists register (UK) .
