You Are Not Alone

My second collection of poems for young people (published by Troika in February 2023, during Children’s Mental Health Week) is aimed at teen and young adult readers and is all about mental health and wellbeing.

You can find out more, read some sample poems, check out the reviews and discover some videos and other resources at

I’m grateful to have received funding from Arts Council England‘s  ‘Developing Your Creative Practice’ programme to support work on the book.

Get involved

If you’re an organisation working with young people to support their mental and emotional wellbeing, I’d love to hear from you. I’m interested in looking at how the poems in the book might help support conversations and explorations, and in developing a selection of media and resources to accompany the book. Please drop me a line if you’re up for a chat.
