Welcome to Healing Words where storytelling is a pathway to peace and well-being. I believe in the power of story to heal and transform.
As a therapeutic storyteller, I have combined my counselling, teaching and storytelling experience and skills under one umbrella. Whether I'm telling stories to school children, advising teachers in their professional development or facilitating peace education classes, I see myself primarily as a storyteller. I share stories with others, encourage others to share their stories, and listen with an open mind and heart. Throughout my work, I see story as central to my interactions with others.
So, what is a healing story? I created this blog to provide a space to discuss and debate that question. I hope that you will become involved in this discussion and share your thoughts with me. Give me feedback. Share stories, reflections and resources.
I look forward to hearing from you.
