Hi and welcome to my site which is to encourage people to live a healthier, simpler and more fulfilling life. The modern world can be so overwhelming and this can lead to poor physical and mental health. By returning to a simpler life we can start to enjoy a better quality of life free of stress. I also like to write about all things Yorkshire-well, that is my name after all and I love to share all about this wonderful county.
I will explore many topics including fitness, natural products, travel, thrifty living and Yorkshire businesses and places of interest.
I am a published author, poet, motivational speaker, aromatherapist, holistic therapist and therapeutic writer and mentor. I have a passion for improving the mental health and wellbeing of people using the craft of writing and related natural health techniques.
Using my own life experiences I looked for ways to help my own mental health through my love of writing. Following the completion of a course and training on Therapeutic Writing delivered by the Professional Writing Academy, I developed a series of workshops to help others in their quest to improve their own health. I am a motivational speaker and have spoken at various groups and venues throughout Yorkshire, including the Living North event at York Racecourse.
I am co-founder of Writers Together, a company passionate about delivering writing workshops to individuals, community groups, schools and corporate organisations.
I have published two books to date with another one due out in 2019. My poetry book ‘The Journey’ is an emotional, personal journey through my life, using the art of poetry. My second book ‘Ageless Beauty’ is a book written for women over the age of forty helping the reader deal with relevant health issues such as menopause using aromatherapy and other natural therapies.
I hold the following qualifications – BA Hons History, English and Art Studies. ISPA Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage, Meditation and Mindfulness, Manifestation using the Law Of Attraction and Vision Boards, Therapeutic and Reflective Writing. I have completed over 1000 hours of Creative Writing Courses. Member of Lapidus International, the words for wellbeing association which promotes the use of writing to improve mental and physical health. DBS checked.
I hope you enjoy my new look site and I hope it inspires you to live a healthier and more simpler way of life.
