Story Space is based in Herefordshire and celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015. It has been developed by Carol Florence Graham, a storyteller, writer, coach and consultant, who has worked in a wide range of settings across England and Wales. She has a BA (Hons) in English and American Literature and over the years has undertaken a variety of trainings to deepen her understanding of storytelling, creativity and holistic learning and development. These include a Certificate in the use of Drama and Movement in Therapy (Sesame) – exploring the transformative energies of metaphors within stories, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Mentoring and Coaching.
"Carol has been my mentor and coach for over a year. Her insight and patient guidance has been of crucial importance in helping me develop my career as a professional storyteller. As a consummate storyteller herself Carol offered meaningful insight into the craft of storytelling from guidance on how to shape and deliver my stories and performances to the equally critical areas of how to avoid the practical and logistical pitfalls of my new career."
Carol is a member of Equity, the National Association of Writers in Education and Lapidus (Writing for Wellbeing).
