“Suit the action to the word, the word to the action”

– William Shakespeare –

Cate Sweeney is a playwright, a published novelist and short story writer and has written newspaper and magazine features. Her first novel, Selfish Jean, was published by Macmillan and she is currently working on two others.

She is also a writer who helps others write and runs workshops that help people do this, either to help those wishing to write for publication, and also those who wish to experience the benefits therapeutically.

You can book the current series of workshops here.

Although her academic background is in science and medicine, she has always written, and added a postgraduate degree in playwriting to her professional qualifications. More recently she retrained as a Gestalt Counsellor and has a busy private practice. she believes this retraining came about, in part, because of witnessing the benefits that writing imaginatively can have on improving mental health, mood and confidence.
