In our work together we will find content for poetry. You will write poetry to help create clarity and make decisions.
Composing poetry can offer you many possibilities. In our work together you will learn to listen to the poem.
Your poem or collection of poems will be your own work, just as your life should be your own life.
Throughout my life and work, with support from trusted family, friends, colleagues, therapists and other mentors, I created my own balance and made my own positive changes.
My life coaching comes with many years of personal and professional experience. I have been described as someone who "walks the walk."
I hold a PhD in Educational Studies and a Certificate in Creative Writing. In my doctoral dissertation I used poetic inquiry to explore identities, emotions and communities.
My published work includes poetry and self-help reflection. I am a life coach with an education career spanning five decades.
I served on the Steering Committees of the Atlantic Centre for Creativity and the Canadian Network for Imagination and Creativity.
We will use our minds and hearts while we imagine the poetic future you will create.
Gratitude was and remains a guiding value and practice in my life. I believe that you and I have much to be grateful for.
As we move forward in our work together, there will be reminders of, and opportunities for, the practice of gratitude.
