A bewitching story
I was lucky enough to grow up on Dartmoor, which gave me an early love of nature and a passion for reading books and watching old Hollywood films. Having spent many years in developing a range of creative pursuits, I still take my inspiration from nature and ancient traditions from around the world.
When I left home to go adventuring, I studied Drama, English Literature and Psychology at degree level, where I learned African Theatre traditions, and discovered that I loved the intrinsic mix of real life and spirituality. Coming to London to pursue my acting career, I realised very quickly that something was missing in life - that sense of enchantment, and I set out to find it again.
I have spent the last twenty years in study. First attending to my spiritual life - I was trained in a Wiccan coven, which I have spent the last fourteen years connected to, and also at the College of Psychic Studies, where I learned Psychic Development. Simultaneously I also learned NLP, Hypnosis and Timeline Therapy, and once I reached Master Practitioner level, I turned my focus to academia.
I then studied for an MA in Modern and Contemporary Literature at Birkbeck, University of London, and then went on to become a PhD student at Middlesex University. My PhD in Creative Writing is due to complete in 2020.
