A Creative Writing Day with Ann Lingard ‘A Sense of Place ’

Hello, I’m Rosie Stevens and The Heart of Change is my business in absolutely every sense.

Perhaps you’ve been feeling stuck in some way? Or perhaps you need to find a new way of looking at a problem or issues that you are struggling with?

Most of us have had to spend a fair chunk of our lives doing what we think others expect of us – growing up, at school, at work and even in our social circles.

Saturday 8th June, 10.00am - 4.00pm RSPB Campfield Reserve, near Bowness-on-Solway

A Cumbria Wildlife Trust event, in collaboration with the RSPB

Come and join novelist and scientist Ann Lingard for a creative writing day, to find out why the Solway’s saltmarshes are so special. You will spend part of the time in the

Campfield Wetlands Centre, talking about the marsh and doing some simple writing exercises and part of the day wandering on the saltmarsh itself, experiencing its sights, sounds and smells.

This is a day for prose-writers but you don’t need to be a published writer: complete beginners are very welcome. To find out more, email

or go to Ann’s Solway Shore-walker blog: capturing-a-saltmarsh-in-words-a-creative-writing-day- on-the-upper-solway/

Booking is essential through Cumbria Wildlife Trust on

01539 816300, or email See also the Events section of their website,

The event is free, but... a suggested donation of £5.00 each to be shared between both charities would be much appreciated.

Please bring... wellies, waterproofs and warm clothes just in case the weather isn’t perfect!

Bring a notebook, pen, a camera and your lunch (very important!).

Coffee, tea and cake will be provided, free of charge.


You may have felt, especially in your childhood, that you had to work hard to please and do things for others, especially those who had power or authority over you.

You may have experienced bullying, aggression or significant traumatic events, in the past or more recently. You may have experienced, or be experiencing, some form of anxiety, fear, panic, anger, resentment, depression, sadness, shame or guilt.

All of our experiences, good and bad, lead us to form beliefs about ourselves – often unconscious – based on others’ expectations, reactions, the things they say to us and the things they have done.

Some beliefs are positive and helpful, while others are negative, self-limiting beliefs that stop us being our real selves. They can stop us from doing and trying things because we think we can’t and ultimately, they stop us from leading the lives we want to live.

At the heart of the journey of personal change is the process of identifying what is holding you back, making you anxious or sad, causing you pain- sometimes literally; the experiences you’ve had, the beliefs you hold and old patterns that are blocking you from living a healthy and fulfilling life, having the relationships you want in your life and having what you want out of life.

I work holistically, blending the therapeutic approaches I’m trained in, to suit you personally and I always give my clients as many additional resources as possible to help them.
