About Janet Dowling

Janet Dowling: Storyteller, Writer, Life Story Coach

I am Janet Dowling (as if you hadn’t guessed!). If you stir the pot that is me, bubbling up from the depths are a storyteller, a writer, a community storyteller, a life story coach and a creative supervisor. Good things, as they say, come in small packages. But that is a whole other story!

I’m also researching material for Devon Ghost Tales, a book to send shivers down your spine. It’s a slow process, as I can’t work on it after dark because I manage to scare myself! Mind you, looking in a mirror does that! Devon Ghost Tales will be published by the History Press in October 2018.

I work with metaphor and storytelling to enable people to explore new ideas, discover different perspectives of themselves and others and create their own changes in their lives.

I am passionate about the role that metaphors and stories play in our lives, and the opportunities that they open up for all of us. Stories enable listeners to learn about different ways to overcome struggles and adversity in their own way, to explore different perspectives on life, to give them hope for change and eventually fulfil their life goals.

Sometimes we have to have some magic just to make the leap in our imaginations, so that we can envisage a future that can be different. Knowing more about how the future could be, gives us the strength to change our own paths.
