“Stories are about connection – connection to each other, to ourselves and to the world around us.”
Story Space was founded in Herefordshire in 2005 by Carol Florence Graham – a poet-storyteller, writer, and facilitator. Over the years Carol has worked with people from all walks of life and has worked in educational and community settings and also with a range of organisations including technology start-ups, SMEs and charities. She has a deep understanding of stories and storytelling and about developing creative thinking and communication skills. Carol continues to explore the ways that a storied approach can enrich our personal and working lives.
Carol has a BA (Hons) in English and American Literature and has qualifications that have deepened her understanding of storytelling, creativity and holistic learning. These include ‘Psyche and Soma’ (Sesame) – exploring the transformative energies of metaphors within stories, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Mentoring and Coaching. She teaches Tai Chi Movements for Well-Being and writes, performs and produces her own work. Carol enjoys encouraging and supporting others to develop and use their own voices – both on and off the page.
“My work is ever-evolving and I’m always learning more about the transformative power of story and metaphor.”
