Meet Dale

Dale Darley, AKA The Word Alchemist. Dale is the Co-Founder of The Healing Book Project. She teaches others how to write to heal and then how to heal others through your writing.

A bit of background

When I was growing up, I wanted to be a rock star. My walls were adorned with posters and the first song I learned all the words to was Wishing Well.

Then as is always the way a teacher told me that I couldn’t sing.

Later another teacher told my dad and me that I would never go to University. They both did me a favour, although I did rather go off the rails.

It didn’t help that some pretty horrible things happened early on. However, it’s what we learn and how we grow from our challenges that makes us who we are. 

My greatest growth came from learning to love myself. reclaim my self-worth and discover the real me.

Today, my passion and purpose is to support others to listen to the whispers of their hearts, learn to love themselves and discover their hearts desires through writing to heal and writing to heal others.

About Dale - Word Alchemist

Imagine your perfect day. What would you be doing? Who would be in your life, and how would that life be unfurling?

Imagine if your experiences could be seen as happening for you and not to you. Even if they were and are challenging, each experience is a gift. A gift for you and one for the world.

What impact would how you view and live your life make on your life and business?

We all have stories. Stories that fundamentally shape us. How we show up today is a direct result of our experiences.

I believe that even in our darkest moments, we are on the right path, with the right people. Even though it may not feel that way.

I help people to believe in themselves, to love themselves and to find inner peace. Most of all I inspire them to know that the healer is within and anything is possible.

I support organisations with The Power Of Journaling Workshops, tailored to their needs to share how writing can support mental health and wellbeing.

As an ex high achieving workaholic, I know the impact of not having the right tools to support my wellbeing.

Writing To Heal has saved my life…

My mission is to support my clients to become their best selves. Are you willing to make a commitment to yourself?

I want to inspire you to know that you are not alone and that you too can do this. Writing To Heal is a wonderful cathartic therapy that brings clarity and inner peace.

Ignite your success

Writing to heal is a process and a journey that enables you to explore what you need to heal using a range of tools that include:

❣Journaling and writing exercises
❣Reflective practice
❣Creative life writing
❣Gratitude and affirmations
❣Colouring mandalas
❣Energy work

Through writing and reflection, I have gained clarity, found peace, been shown what action I have needed to take, and so will you. This is why I wrote Writing To Heal and many other journaling books.

Through my online courses, books and mentoring, I help you get clarity with:

♥ Getting clear on your hearts desires and purpose

♥ Discovering self-love and reclaiming self-worth

♥ Finding inner peace

I hold an MBA from The University of Glamorgan and an ILM Level 7 Executive Coaching certificate.

I have served in senior marketing management roles in the IT and manufacturing sectors before working for myself.

I live in the hills with my two rescue dogs - Marley Moo and Angel.

And I love cake (gluten free, of course)

My Mission...

My mission is simple: to support my clients to manifest magic through writing to heal and sharing their story to inspire others. 

Life is sweeter when you have a sense of purpose and meaning. 

I work with spiritually aligned men and women who have a story of trauma and healing that they feel needs to be healed and shared with the world.

You want to learn to deeply love yourself, release all judgement from your stories, connect with your hearts desires, purpose and find inner peace.

You are strong, brave and resilient and want to create possibilities and opportunities for themselves and others.

You want to make a difference and to inspire others to be the best that they can be.

And you want to rock that out into the world.

My Values | Beauty | Freedom | Adventure

To see beauty in all, without judgement and from a place of love

Everyone has the right to be who they are and to live in a way that suits them

To adventure within, follow your heart and heart's desires and live a life of purpose and meaning
