I came to Writing for Wellbeing, which I found warm, encouraging and inspiring. It was lovely to try new ways of writing in such a supportive, inclusive and flexible group. I’ve taken part in lots of Zoom events and this one really stood out.

Facilitator: Fiona Mason

 Fiona is an author and an experienced writing tutor and mentor. She’s a Relational Dynamics qualified coach with an MA in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths College, London.

Writing for Wellbeing explores how expressive writing can contribute to health and wellbeing.

Expressive writing has been shown to calm the emotions, still the mind and encourage feelings of wellbeing and compassion, meaning that we become kinder to others, and kinder to ourselves. Developing a regular writing habit in a journal can be a wonderful meditative and mindful start to the day.

In these sessions, we’re not concerned with grammar, perfect sentences and gripping stories. We are interested in the process of writing and how it can help to uncover our motivations, fears, needs, worries, hopes and dreams. There will be plenty of opportunities to have a go, as we look at journalling, free-writing and owning, embracing and telling the story of our lives.


Your journal can become a loyal friend and confidante, through life’s ups and downs. Whatever you’re going through, whether joyful or painful, developing a regular writing practice really can make a massive difference to your outlook and wellbeing.
