Would you like some company?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

A lot of my work now is one to one. However, as Martin Buber reminds us “all learning takes place in relationship”.  I know that some of my greatest learning comes from the small, connected communities that I’m a part of.  I like to create spaces to connect people to one another, so that their experiences can be heard, seen, chewed over, digested and felt. 

Current spaces where we can be together are through my Workshops, Online Storytelling Community, and Leaders Circle.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these communities, please drop me a line to find out more....

Attending Sandra’s storytelling workshop is taking a break from the madcap world and tasting a sample of the better world we are working towards. Her facilitation has enough rigour to challenge supported by sincere warmth and nurturing. Sandra took a room full of strangers to become a learning community in one short day.

I would have every confidence in recommending Sandra, her expertise, agility and skill are exemplary. I look forward to another opportunity to work with her.

​What's your story for this year?


The Story That We Tell
The story that we tell
about what we must do
or be, or say,
deafens us to music
that is ours alone to play.
The story that is ours
to live completely
is a mystery to us –
because we are busy telling ourselves stories
that no longer fit –
until we wake one day
and see life with newly opened eyes,
full of surprise.


- Judy Brown -


Once upon a time.....

What do these words conjure up for you? Stories are woven into our lives from an early age. Fairy stories. Nursery rhymes. Tales of the family. The heroes and the villains , painted to illustrate the path our parents and caregivers would like to steer us towards and away from. But what of the path we long to uncover for ourselves?

If you are curious about your story, then I warmly welcome you to this online circle. We will uncover the symbols and images that carry meaning for you; discover which stories have shaped your thinking, feeling and being and how. You will learn to “read" your story to mine it for deeper understanding. What does it hold for you? Why might you be drawn to it? How does it influence the stories you tell yourself about life and love? How can you find, create and choose the stories that will nourish and support your wellbeing and growth?

Drawing on the wisdom of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés,  and her book Women Who Run with the Wolves, I will guide you through an intimate process of self-discovery through story wisdom. If you would like to understand the power of your stories and start the year crafting an intentional story, then come and join us.

We will meet on Zoom for an evening session on Thursday 10 March: 19.30 - 20.30 to get to know one another, and to set some intentions for our dreaming hours before the main story circle, also on Zoom  on Friday 11 March 09.00-12.00. 

We will be a small group of no more than 10 people.

Cost: £159

This workshop is open to everyone. If you would like to come and cost is an issue, drop me a line and let me know how much you can afford.

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have and would love you to share some of your story with us.

I believe in creating spaces for the “missing conversations” (Susan Scott); for the challenging conversations, the bridging conversations that allow us to join the dots and perspectives. As I see it, that’s how we learn to experience the world in its fullest sense, and to recognise that we’re a small piece of the puzzle.


As a response to Covid-19, I invited a small group of leaders to meet and connect to share wisdom and experience. These meetings are informal and are a chance to speak freely; listen to others’ experiences and to find community with people who share similar challenges and questions. My hope is that this enables people to reflect on how they’re leading and to cultivate practices to enable them to be present and respond mindfully to those they lead.
