Writing to heal takes you on a journey that asks you to first pick up your pen and write in a journal. To then reflect on what you have written and rewrite it with positive intention, so that you change your story.
As you change the way in which you view life and your story, your life will change. Add in the dimension of creative writing exercises, through short stories, prose or poems, suddenly you are on an adventure where you are in control of your destiny. You can now decide what happens to the characters and what the outcome of the tale might be.
Let me hold your hand and guide you the process I use with my coaching clients.
We start by looking at what journaling is and in the first few modules get you started on your journaling journey and writing each day.
There are a number of different creative writing exercises for you to use as inspiration and kick-starts.
After you have got used to your daily journaling, it is then time to start reflecting and included are a number of reflection exercises, which are designed to help you see where your unhelpful patterns of behaviour are and to encourage you to change thought patterns, habits, beliefs and perceptions.
Both journaling and reflecting are immensely healing activities in themselves. I have added in creative life writing as I have witnessed both my clients and myself getting huge benefits from melding fact with fiction to come up with some factional stories, which put us back in the driving seat of our lives.
How long will it take?
It takes as long as you would like. How you work through the material should be in a way that suits you. You are encouraged to journal for 30 days to create a good habit. The exercises are designed to get you thinking and for you to a) follow in a linear fashion or b) randomly try things.
Why take this course?
This course is for anyone who feels 'stuck' and would like to try a novel approach to changing their life and starting to heal. Writing is cathartic and when you add in reflection and creative life writing the opportunities for change and healing open up.
Many people who use journalling have discovered that they also have a book inside of them. You may not want to publish your book, however, this course will lead you from journaling into creative life writing and give you the confidence to write a book if you so choose.
If you can journal you can write, if you can write short stories you can write a book.
So start learning these highly creative writing exercises to reveal your full potential.

My passion is helping you to discover the stories inside of you, and help you to share these so that you can leave your legacy, heal, share your inspirational message, have fun, and have a life that really rocks.
I am an expert at getting your story out, and really finding the essence of what you want to say. And then saying it so that it is engaging and makes an impact.
I have a background in professional training, executive coaching and strategy and I additionally combine these skills to facilitate this journey.
So who am I?
I have been described in many ways - enthusiastic, high energy, inspirational, motivation and fun. I have also been described as beautifully eccentric, which I do indeed take as a compliment. What you get is what you see. What I want for you, is to own who you are and to share your gifts with the world.
In between drinking white tea, experimenting with recipes and walking the loves of my life - Ferdy dog (RIP), Marley Moo & Angel, I can be found writing. And I do a bit of abstract arty stuff with wire and wool.
