As well as telling my own story, I specialise in writing about patient experiences, mental health, pain, chronic illness and parenting with disability and am open-minded about tackling any subject requiring patient advocacy. As a Patient Leader with lived experience of disability from a young age, I can write with authority on these experiences and have a talent for taking subjects’ background and telling their story in my typical lyrical and empathetic way.
Leaning on my experiences of songwriting and poetry, you will see from articles featured on this website and those published elsewhere (examples below) that I use a unique style that captures any reader’s attention with a sensitivity that’s respectful of the subject. Get in touch to discuss further.
