My name is Deborah Sloan.  I am a therapist, writer and creative writing practitioner.  The picture above shows me involved in one of my favourite pastimes – one that I discovered and that helped me as I navigated my way through fertility issues and learned to live without children.

As a therapist, I specialise in fertility issues and every working day I see and hear the emotional devastation that not being able to have one’s own children can bring.

It feels that this blog is a junction of all that I have experienced, learned and heard over nearly two decades.  I hope you find what I have to share helpful and thought-provoking.
