Hello and thank you for visiting my Author page. As a counsellor and writer I am motivated to do my best for myself and my clients. I have also been the Editor for a community magazine around diversity. Currently I see counselling clients individually and run groups on Mindfulness, and Therapeutic Writing.

These books were written because the ideas came to me and I needed to create them. They both cover themes of wellbeing and difference. Who are we on the inside? How do we live when others refer to us by names we did not choose for ourselves?
"An A-Z for Your Life - discovering and revealing who you are today", is about life and for anyone who wants to be more mindful of the choices they are making. It contains many gems and will support you in reflecting on your life so far and help you discover the direction you wish to take to live your most authentic life.
In "They Call Me - nicknames on the island of Grenada" you will learn about Caribbean nicknames and be moved to laughter and maybe even tears. It's a rollercoaster ride reading the many stories of how people got their nicknames and how they live with these. The brief history is accessible and would be a good way to prepare for your Caribbean holiday. It also makes a fun gift for family, friend or colleague.
Hope you enjoy these books and stay connected as they're are more ideas afoot. Please leave a review to help me spread the word. Thank you and kindest regards, Shirley
