As most freelancers and small business owners will tell you, writing the 'About' page on your website can be pretty challenging! However, it is so so useful for your community to get to know you and your ethos. I've chosen to create this separate post to add a little more detail about myself and the way my work has evolved to where I am today. Enjoy, and if you do have any questions you'd like to ask before choosing to work with me, just send me a message.
I am a writer, workshop leader and wellness coach based in Cornwall. I have combined my academic background with teacher training, gaining experience in marketing agencies and pursuing CPD qualifications in the coaching and wellness industry.
My degrees are in English and Visual Culture (BA Hons, University of Exeter) and Creative Writing (MA, University of Winchester) and I have trained as a Blue Health Coach and Meditation, Mindfulness & Wellness Coach, both of which are accredited by the ICF (International Coaching Federation).
Here in Falmouth and online, I offer one-to-one wellness coaching as well as women's circles, retreat days and creative wellbeing workshops.
I have extensive experience delivering in-person workshops both independently and with partner organisations such as the Eden Project , The Sea Sanctuary and Hall for Cornwall. I also deliver online workshops and talks, and have appeared on BBC Radio Cornwall and local podcasts to talk about my work, which is something I hope to do more of this year.
As a freelance content creator, I also help my small businesses manage their social media accounts and marketing materials. This can include Instagram and Facebook posts, blogs, newsletters and website copy as well as bespoke projects. Although most of my clients are in the wellness industry, I am open to working with anybody who feels like we might be a good fit for each other. If your contribution to wellness is coffee, or lovely hand-crafted gifts, that's fine by me! If our values align, let's chat.
Alongside my freelance career I have recently worked in the Falmouth Bookseller, a thriving independent bookshop in the heart of my creative local community. I've also been a sailing, windsurfing and paddle boarding instructor and somehow managed to spend most of my school and uni summer holidays working outside!
I am a free spirit and lover of the seaside and storytelling. I'm highly sensitive and I listen, think and feel deeply - I love connecting with people and learning both experientially and through books and words. You'll find me spending as much time as possible outside, usually by the coast with my dog Ted.
I believe in bringing my whole self into the work that I do, and in turn I love the openness of connecting with people who show up vulnerably and honestly themselves. If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Instagram.
