About

I am an Author, Illustrator, Artist and Psychotherapist !

This year I have given myself the challenge of writing and illustrating a daily gratitude blog! I am doing this because I have a creative but neurotic mind that spends far too much time focusing on the negatives of life. I can easily advise my clients to become ‘mindful’ and focus on the positives, but that does not mean I find it easy myself!

So, to practice what I preach, here is my blog…and did you know that it takes three positive thoughts to cancel out the effects of a negative one?

Here Goes!!!2012 to success and beyond!

    I have just found your blog and being someone who uses creativity to get through periods of depression, I am glad to have found it! I started my own blog for similar reasons and just wanted to post some words of encouragement. Your artwork is beautiful.

    • Thankyou so much ,that is wonderful! I’m so glad that you like my posts…I am finding the blog a real challenge but it is getting easier every day. It is really hard to stay focused on the positives, but the act of drawing kind of trains the mind in a different way. I have looked at your blog I hope you carry on posting regularly . Dont be afraid to sketch it is the best thing ever…do it for yourself primarily. I dont know if you know the book ‘ The Creative License’ by Danny Gregory it inspired me to do this blog perhaps it will inspire you to get sketching too x Bev

    I will look into the book; once my confidence is up I hope to post little pencil sketches I do each day. I am following several blogs and yours which inspire me.
    Many thanks!

    • That is fantastic! thankyou so much. I am really happy to receive this award and will try to continue to spread the award around…the thing is I am so so busy at the moment it may take me a while to find the people to give some to myself (I love all the people you have listed ) …is there a time limit on these things?
      Once again thanks a million xx

    such a sumptuous and beautiful blog. I’ve just started blogging on here so I’m still getting to grips with it, but seeing blogs like this are a real inspiration to continue mine in a similar vein. Keep doing what you’re doing!
