Writing for Wellbeing

I have lived experience using creative writing and poetry as a way to process life challenges and as a way to explore creativity. I offer a safe space to explore the hidden. This approach often leads to insights and light bulb moments that surface on the page. I run small workshops for beginners to introduce you to different techniques exploring your inner world and to inspire your creative potential.

I’m particularly interested in helping new parents to use poetry, a manageable form, to process their experiences and find a beneficial way to spend those all-important and precious moments of ‘me time’.

I’m a freelance wellbeing writer and a published poet with an MA in Creative Writing (Birkbeck, London). I’m currently working on my debut collection of poetry about sleep, dreams and the subconscious mind. There’s more about my work here: www.leahlarwood.co.uk

I have undertaken various CPD and short courses in mindfulness, counselling and writing therapy. I’m currently training with the International Federation of Biblio Poetry Therapy under the supervision of world leading Poetry Therapist, psychologist & author, Dr Geri Chavis.
