Patricia Fleming

Offering Writing for Wellbeing

After gaining a first-class honours degree in Creative Writing from the University of Birmingham, Patricia became interested in how writing might be used to provide a therapeutic benefit to people suffering from stress or trauma. A search online brought up the Metanoia Institute - part of the University of Middlesex - and she successfully completed their Postgraduate Certificate in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes in 2015.

The workshops Patricia offers include some of the background to the therapeutic application of writing, as well as providing a safe and supportive space in which you will be able to explore themes and ideas and respond to these as well as the feelings that you associate with them. The insights that arise out of your reading and discussion can be surprising, funny, sad or uplifting - but always meaningful and personal to you.
