As well as working as a Freelance Facilitator, I have also created my own methodology called The Write Idea which is great for idea generation, surfacing insights and perspectives, scene setting, energisers and more.
I've recently worked with Ipsos on a project working with the public around climate adaptation (April 2022.)

Life can be hard. It’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially if you’re pre-disposed to over-thinking, indecision, catastrophizing (don’t take me on, I’ll win) and getting caught in the spin cycle, you know, where you go round and round in circles.
It feels impossible to stop and take a breath, to check in with what you really want and who you really are amongst all the noise. You’re getting by, but not really living. It’s no fun and I know because I've been there.
If you’re feeling lost, stuck or overwhelmed, I can help you to get some headspace and clarity and make changes in your life. I’m not talking about big dramatic changes, though these are often what we crave when we’re backed into a corner. Small changes can make a big difference and in my experience people just need to come back to themselves where they mostly find they have all they need.
I’ll guide you – with the aid of writing exercises (not compulsory) - to re-discover who you are and what makes you happy, so you can spend more time doing the things that fulfil you, and dare I say it, have an easier, more enjoyable life. Imagine that.
I’ve helped people to unblock their creativity, change career, reduce overwhelm and stress, adjust to more senior positions at work, tackle relationship challenges, take chances on doing the things that they love as well as discovering what those things are. People are left feeling more in control, happier, and hopeful – even excited - about the future.
First we'll chat to see if we'd like to work together, then we'll set up a first session if that feels right. I normally recommend six to ten sessions every other week, but some prefer weekly, some less sessions, some more. This can all be arranged to suit what you're looking for.
Also available - Prompt Prescription - an email coaching service using writing - see below.
We all have mental health. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes, not so good. Whilst I believe writing is incredibly healing as well as useful, writing is never going to replace professional intervention if you need additional support, though it can be incredibly helpful alongside therapeutic work. If you're unsure what help you might need, I can help you to explore what's available.

Prompt Prescription is an Email coaching service. As with one to one coaching, it aims to help you work through specific goals and challenges, but with Prompt Prescription we use writing (via email) instead of speaking.
In summary, here's how it works:
1. You tell me about your current challenge or goal, by email.
2. I send you a writing prompt.
3. You write from that prompt.
4. You share what you’ve written and/or your experience of the writing.
5. I send my reflections and a further prompt.
Emails are responded to within 48 hours.
No writing experience is necessary.
