Arts and Health
I believe in the power of poetry and creative writing to impact health and well-being.
I am a trained coach and bibliotherapist and have used poetry in my therapeutic work with individuals and in group settings.
I volunteer for Alzheimer's Research UK Dementia Voice project and Alzheimer's Society accelerator programme. I am a judge and expert advisor for the Longitude Prize on Dementia.
I am a supporter of the National Centre for Creative Health and a member of the National Alliance for the creative arts in health and care and The Social Prescribing Network. I also am active member of Lapidus - the international writing for wellbeing community.
