This is Not Therapy – Poetry and stories to bring hope, humour and solace in a confusing world.
Tina’s poems are like a joyous, witty friend you can’t wait to hang out with.’
Jess Green, poet and BBC scriptwriter
Tina Sederholm is a poet who takes the written word and brings it alive on stage. Her poetry is funny, engaging and deceptively profound. She brings a light touch to awkward situations, and contends that no person or day is exempt from an interesting story.
Over the last twenty years she has created four solo spoken word theatre shows, including the sellout show, Everything Wrong With You Is Beautiful. A veteran of six runs at The Edinburgh Fringe, she has also performed at festivals such as TheatreFest, Off Beat Oxford, Swindon Fringe, Cheltenham Poetry Festival, Wantage Betjeman Festival and the Burton Taylor Studio. Her headline performances have surprised and delighted audiences everywhere from allotments to the Royal Albert Hall.
Tina is author of poetry collections, The Velvet Box, Everything Wrong With You Is Beautiful and This Is Not Therapy, as well as three books on equestrianism. She loves helping other writers hone their work too, through one to one mentoring and editing workshops.
When she isn’t writing and performing, Tina can be found walking her dogs across the rolling North Oxfordshire countryside. A former international event rider and trainer, she has been known to still give the odd riding lesson.
Her latest book, This Is Not Therapy, published by Burning Eye, is available from July 2021.
