What is Writing for Wellbeing?

Writing for Wellbeing is an overarching term for writing that is also known as therapeutic writing, although it is not therapy per se. 

 

What I offer

Writing workshops to enhance reflection, wellbeing,creativity.as well as personal and professional development.

I design and facilitate bespoke writing workshops for :

  • for those in roles that involve therapeutic care of others, including those working in ANY healthcare profession and sector, social work, social carer, social prescribers, linkworkers,therapy and counselling staff

  • those who are receiving care in health, community and social care settings

  •  for any organisations that are looking for ways to support staff and student wellbeing

  • the wider community

Writing for Wellbeing for those in the Caring Professions

 If you work with people in a caring capacity, in any setting, are training to do so,and/or are training others to do so,then these workshops are designed with YOU in mind.
