International Academy for Poetry Therapy

The International Academy for Poetry Therapy (iaPoetry) is a credentialing organisation that provides quality training for those who wish to become Poetry Therapy Practitioners (PTP).  We believe in the principles of therapeutic writing and non-violent communication, and in helping each other to foster well-being, growth and learning.

I am an Executive Director of iaPOETRY (the International Academy for Poetry Therapy) and a Master Mentor for the academy – mentoring and training potential Poetry Therapy Practitioners and Mentors, both in the UK and internationally. I have received awards and scholarships from NAPT (National Association for Poetry Therapy) and Wales Arts International, for pioneering work in the field of poetry therapy, as well as scholarships from Bridgexngs Poetry Center, NYC.
