Life Writing Workshops for therapeutic purposes or for creative/life/memoir writing

Sandra M Dean Life Writing Workshops in Rayleigh, Essex

So, what are they all about? Well, there are two types of Life Writing Workshops;

  1. Individual for therapeutic purposes where we look to unlock the past and see how you think from your subconscious.
  2. Individual/groups for the purposes of writing your life/memoir writing/creative writing.

ALL workshops are two hours.

Life Writing workshops for therapy are one to one sessions of two hours, which are tailor made to you. When you arrive, I will go through a short questionnaire with you to get an idea of what you want to achieve and to give you some choices too.

We can do:

Twenty minute writing exercises (you can bring a photo of something/someone of significance if you like for one of these). We analyse your writing and therapeutically see what the writing is saying about your thoughts and feelings. These can unlock the subconscious.

Discuss the benefits of writing as therapy (I have researched this widely)

Set homework

Show you ways you can write at home beneficially

And more…

These are fun, revealing, interesting sessions which can be of great benefit therapeutically.

Life Writing Workshops for creative/life writing/memoir writing purposes are two hours per session and consist of writing exercises, reading aloud if comfortable doing so, feedback from peers and myself, homework and more.

I am a self-published author of eight inspiring books (under the pseudonym Amanda Green CLICK HERE TO SEE MY AUTHOR WEBSITE INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH), including memoirs, short stories and fiction. MY BOOKS ON AMAZON. I have been writing about my life since I was fourteen in very many different ways (journals, letters, essays and more), and find it a great tonic and therapy to continue to write about my experiences and issues. I am a trained BACP registered Counsellor (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and Mental Health Wellness Coach and thrive on helping others with their issues.

Therefore, these are unique workshops and should be lots of fun, as well as being therapeutic and productive. I can help in a therapeutic way and/or with your writing skills – it’s your choice!

I am fully insured with public liability insurance.

All workshops are confidential.
