Ceremonies for Life

Funerals, Memorials, Weddings, Baby Namings and Welcomings
All rites of passage considered


I’ve been a Humanists UK celebrant since 2011. Although I live and work in the Oxfordshire area, I will happily consider working further afield. Below is a brief introduction to my work and the range of possibilities that are open to you.

I’ve been training indirectly for celebrancy since I was in my twenties. I was an actor for twelve years. I left the theatre in 1987 to make space for my writing. Since then I’ve had seven poetry collections published. My fiction also appears in a number of anthologies and fiction magazines. I’ve worked as a writer in residence in a prison and large city hospitals and I run poetry and storytelling workshops in care homes, schools and community hospitals. I also enjoy working with other artists and across different cultures.

You can see some of the work I do if you click on my blog and my other website.

If you want to know more, here’s my podcast interview with Simon Smith, who is also a Humanists UK celebrant.
