I am a poet, writer, nature lover, transpersonal psychotherapist, and intuitive practitioner. My interests lie in the human psyche, transformation, nature spirituality, spiritual self-awareness, earth-based spiritual practice, Scotland and UK travel, emotions and magic. I write about emotions, psychology, an intuitive way of living, nature-based spirituality and soul relationship with the land.
Writing to me is an organic unfolding relationship between parts of myself, nature, and the world around me. My journey began in Siberia from immersive childhood experiences with nature and magic, to being exposed to intense emotions of love and loss at a tender age. I graduated with an English degree in Oxford and have been working with books in the UK publishing industry for over twenty two years. Later in life I undertook the in-depth, intensive psychotherapy training for several years and went through my own spiritual awakening that led to my first encounter with my soul land, Scotland. I incorporate all elements of my life experience into my writing: poetry, non-fiction and fiction.
What lights me up is the creative process. It is in the process that I come alive and experience intense satisfaction and joy. All my writing projects and ideas come to me either intuitively in line with what needs to be expressed in my experience at that time or spring directly from my experience, either present or past.
This chapbook was born out of my on-going profound spiritual relationship with Scotland. It is my love letter to the land. Poems flowed through and out of me in ready form. It has been a highly intuitive, aligned, emotional, personal, unique and passionate project for me.
Writing PAGAN PORTALS BABA YAGA was an utterly beautiful and transformational process for me and a great privilege to be able to record her voice and wisdom for others to experience.
PAGAN PORTALS INTUITIVE MAGIC PRACTICE published by Moon Books is a result of my home coming to myself, reigniting nature-based magic practice and embracing intuitive living. The process got re-awakened in a powerful way a few years ago.
WEATHERING THE STORM is an anthology written by Moon Books authors during the 2020 lockdown to assist people with that experience. I had the privilege to be a contributor to this wonderful resource and anthology.
NATURE THERAPY WALKS was a collaboration with Cortney Cameron, who asked me to contribute to the project. It was a delight to produce contributions on sensory activities for this unique book.
