I teach from a point of view of knowing how tricky creativity can be and use my years of art and writing practice to help make it easier for others. I have a higher education teaching qualification and have worked at two universities teaching courses on creativity and creative writing. I am now freelance and for 18 months I worked with Headway, the brain injury charity, running a creativity project which culminated in a film which demonstrates the group’s wonderful humour and tenacity in the face of coping with a brain injury.
