Jenny Pearson - Author

About the Author

Jenny Pearson has been awarded with six mugs, one fridge magnet, one wall plaque and numerous cards for her role as 'Best Teacher in the World'. When she is not busy being inspirational in the classroom, she would like nothing more than to relax with her two young boys, but she can't as they view her as a human climbing frame. She has recently moved to the North East of England and while she has yet to meet Ant or Dec, she has learned how to use canny in a sentence. Which is dead canny, like.

The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates

The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates

Author: Jenny Pearson Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/06/2020

Facts are everything to eleven-year-old Freddie Yates: once you know a fact it's yours to keep. After his grandmother dies and Freddie discovers his biological father might be alive and well in Wales, he decides to follow the facts. Together with his best friends Ben and Charlie, he sneaks off on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least, the summer holidays) to track down Freddie's father. Freddie doesn't expect any miracles-they're not real, after all. But when the three unwittingly set off a chain of inexplicable events via an onion-eating competition, a couple of superhero costumes, and some very angry antique thieves, Freddie discovers that some things can't always be explained-and sometimes what you're looking for has been with you the whole time. Propulsive and hilarious, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates is a heartwarming story about the true meaning of family.

Analyst of the Imagination The Life and Work of Charles Rycroft

Author: Jenny Pearson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2004

Charles Rycroft's lucid jargon-free approach to psychoanalysis inspired a whole generation. Taking inspiration from many fields outside psychoanalysis, including history, literature, linguistics and ethology, he established the important link between mental health and the imagination, creating a broader perspective and encouraging free thinking. This solitary and creative rebel rarely received the recognition he deserved, but this collection of articles and papers by people who felt the benefit of his ever-curious, expanding wealth of knowledge, goes some way to acknowledging the debt owed to him, and introducing a new generation to this innovative analyst.

Discovering the Self through Drama and Movement The Sesame Approach

Discovering the Self through Drama and Movement The Sesame Approach

Author: Jenny Pearson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/07/1996

This is the first detailed account of the theory and practice of the Sesame Method, which was created by Marian Lindkvist 30 years ago, as it has evolved and been handed down experientially. It is now taught at the Central School of Speech and Drama; many of the contributors are current or former teachers at the school, or are Sesame trained therapists working in the field. The book aims to define the work of Sesame in terms of the theories upon which it is based and the method which puts these theories to use in practice in a variety of client groups. The reader is invited to enter imaginatively into the experiences of body, movement, voice, myth and ritual, and to be a witness as others explore this medium. Experts in the field spell out the theoretical base of Sesame work in its different aspects: in movement, drama, voice, myth ritual and Jungian psychological theory. Finally the contributors describe how they use the method through therapy sessions and workshops in the community with various clients, from people with physical and learning disabilities to children who have been abused and people in prisons. As well as presenting an overview of Sesame, this book will inspire readers to a rediscovery of the joys of self-expression through dance, movement and drama, through the transformative nature of the Sesame experience.
