Arts and Health 

I believe in the power of poetry and creative writing to keep us well, heal and support longer lives more deeply lived..

I am a trained coach (executive, Zen, Gestalt and biblio therapist) and have used poetry with individuals and groups.  Earlier in my career I worked at The Nudge Unit (behavioural change) and within UK health policy.

I volunteer for Alzheimer's Research UK Dementia Voice and The Alzheimer's Society accelerator programme.  I am a judge and expert advisor for the Longitude Prize on Dementia.

I am a trustee at 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.
