In 2002 I survived a near fatal motorcycle accident that left me with complex injuries, a right leg below knee amputee and post traumatic stress. My first collection of poetry, Heart on the Mountain, published in 2012, offers a window into my journey of recovery and the importance the landscape played in this. Just scroll down a little to find out more.
When I’m not writing I work as a professional facilitator and mentor. No tricks, no jargon, no NLP.
Just helpful conversations about leadership, communication, working together, systems, projects and change.
All from an evidence based and solution focused perspective: Find out more.
Heart on the Mountain
‘Now I am not the type of person to pick up a book of poetry and enjoy it, my school days saw to that, but my god am I glad I read this! . . . It was as though someone had reached inside me and expressed every unutterable feeling of my own and put them on paper. I felt, for the first time in a long time, as if I was not alone, that someone else out there understood what I was going through . . . His descriptions of the healing power of nature and the beauty of the natural world were echo’s of my own. This book would make such a wonderful gift for anyone who is going through a challenging time, but also is a must read for every home.’ – SI Houghton
