Lavendilly House arrived when I became a mother. I began sharing my reflections of motherhood, parenting and womanhood here on this blog – never dreaming that so many others would identify with my written reflections. It has encouraged me to keep writing, to keep sharing, and to encourage others to share their stories too.
I also offer this space to connect with you professionally – as an Artist, Storyteller, Early Childhood Consultant, Parenting Mentor and Authorised Marriage Celebrant. My work is beautiful, gentle and creative. Sharing it with you feeds my creative energies too.
My passion is currently manifesting through the potential of storytelling: as an opportunity for self-reflection, learning, sharing experiences, building community, and its use in therapeutic forms. I have written many therapeutic and nature stories for children and adults, and have been a parenting writer and facilitator of parent education and early childhood professional development since 2007.
Enjoy this blog: do make use of the “SEARCH” function on the right-hand side: look for things like recipes, crafts, dolls, natural parenting, poetry, meditations, story, advent, motherhood … There is a little of every thing at Lavendilly House – and from here, ALL my various work has flowed, opening many more rooms in Lavendilly House ever since.
