Have fun & develop your creativity
We live in a world alive with distraction and busyness – social media, television, parenting and everything involved with day to day survival.
Our world can be rich, dynamic, thick with experience and it can also feel like a fog of overwhelm in which we lose ourselves.
Do you have the desire to feel more rooted, more connected?
Do you have puzzles about your own process, how you end up sometimes in a place which feels unproductive and you wish for a different experience?
Would you like to have some tools which allow you to explore your own landscape?
Would you like to have fun and develop your creativity?
Welcome to creative writing with therapeutic purpose.
Jacqui Smith combines writing with meditation, mindfulness and a creative approach in this new creative writing group.

About Jacqui Smith
Hi, I’m Jacqui. I have over twenty years of experience as a psychotherapist and have a passion for writing and having fun. My new creative writing group at The Wellbeing Centre will be a group focussed on increasing the experience of wellbeing in participants by focusing on development of creativity, fun and nurture in a supportive, safe and confidential environment.
My passion for this particular genre of therapy is that it can be as public or as private as you desire. It is so versatile it can be used to support any process, at any depth. You can spend ten minutes with it, or hours.
The presentation will be varied and include the development of different writing tools, investigation of fables and storytelling, poetry, prose and anything else you may be interested in. There will be no focus on spelling, grammar or construction – in this group you can only get it right – for you.
I recently gave a taster of this kind of session at the Newbury Wellbeing Network meeting. You can read more about this in the blog article that Claire Bushell wrote about it: Creative Writing with Therapeutic Purpose.
