1. I have achieved two big goals of mine in matter of 6 weeks.

Participant in the Composed Program
Over the course of the program, Fiona helped me find clarity, perspective and a renewed sense of purpose.
This was an invaluable program that came along at just the right time for me. I was suffering burnout and didn’t even realise it! Through my sessions with Fiona I reflected deeply on my career, creative identity, and future plans. Fiona helped me get in the right headspace to set and achieve goals – in particular creating a website and applying for funding for my own project – which at the start of the program I was in no way ready to do.
Outcome: A renewed commitment to a career in the arts – An understanding of myself as an artist, and the values that underpin my work – A professional website – A grant application for my own professional development

” I had the pleasure of being a participant in mindfulness-based workshops run by Fiona over the course of a year. She made the experience accessible and interesting and I had an overall feeling of improved well-being.
I found her capacity to run a group exceptional- the best I’ve ever experienced. She created a safe, inclusive space, learning and feedback, always positive. Her energy was always high, warm, engaging. It’s clear Fiona is a knowledgeable and experienced workshop leader and knows her stuff.
Workshops were fun and creative. Thanks Fiona!”
“As an emerging playwright, I was in the process of writing a short play and I had reached a juncture in which I could not see the characters for the play. I had lost touch with them and wanted to be reintroduced. Fiona, as Dramaturg, allowed me to refocus and flesh out the characters into people with more profound needs and history.
Our sessions were often conversations over a cup of coffee and if overheard, could easily be taken for two people discussing the intimate lives of a couple. Her questions were pertinent and allowed me to delve deeper into the lives of the characters and see them from perspectives that I had not considered.
Fiona, thank you. Your insight and empathy helped me to develop two characters with complex lives.”
“I had to do some last edits on my novel before my agent could start hawking it around. But I had a giant mental block. Fiona Green got me all sorted! We made a plan, stuck to it… and now I’ll be published by Picador next February! One very happy customer.”
