Writing workshops

Writing can be a therapeutic response to fertility problems, and fertility counsellor Deborah Sloan is facilitating a new creative writing workshop group in Brighton for men and women who are thinking about their future without much-wanted children.

Using a combination of peer support and creative exercises, each two hour workshop will help you to explore and express the things you may find difficult to share in other areas of your life. The aim of the workshops is to allow you to connect, to support and feel supported and potentially to discover new ways of thinking and being.

You do not need to have any previous experience in writing or creative techniques, and the emphasis is on the process rather than the ‘end product’. The workshops take place in Brighton on Saturday mornings and you can find more details on Deborah’s website.


Creative writing for fertility

120px-Inkwell_icon_-_Noun_Project_2512.svgIf you enjoy writing, you may be interested in a special series of group creative writing workshops aimed at exploring and expressing the feelings and emotions brought up by fertility issues.

The five half-day workshops are open to both men and women and will take place in Brighton in East Sussex. They will be run by fertility counsellor and writing facilitator, Deborah Sloan. You don’t have to have any experience of creative writing to join the workshops, and a range of writing prompts are given using music, art, literature and natures.

The dates for 2016 are all Saturdays – the 16 January, 27 February, 2 April, 30 April and 11 June. The workshops can be attended individually as a drop in (dependent upon availability) or can be booked as a course of five. For more information or to book, please contact Deborah on 07753 228616 or at deborah@deborahsloancounselling.com  The workshops cost £30 each or £135 if you would like to attend them all.
