Hello! My name is Ash Alves.
I am writer, creative director, workshop facilitator and founder of Warrior Reminder Ltd. I am an International Politics Graduate and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Level 3 qualified. I currently reside in Birmingham, UK.
Welcome to my blog.
My blogging journey began in early 2017 out of desperation for an outlet to process all the chaos that imprisoned my mind. I was a recent politics graduate, struggling to find a job and, had no idea what direction I wanted to take with my life. To make matters worse, my family environment was in complete disarray. I was unhappy with all aspects of my life and found myself crippled by negative thoughts and low self-esteem.
I began writing as an outlet and discovered that I have the power to heal myself and transform my life. My internal battles inspired the creation of my blog. I wanted to share my experiences and reach out to others who were also on a journey towards self discovery. I felt alone through most of my struggles and I want others to know that they’re not alone. My struggles inspired my personal mission to normalise conversations around mental health, trauma, healing and multi-dimensional issues affecting wellbeing. I aim to equipped others with the tools and resources to take ownership over their personal healing journey whilst advocating for honest conversations about how systems of oppression make people unwell. I hope that my work inspires someone else to keep going, no matter how hard life gets.
Writing has saved my life and I hope to connect with others to instil a little hope in their lives. Join me on my journey as I attempt to untangle my thoughts through writing.
-Love Ash, x
