La Papillon

Joined 6 years ago from Melbourne, Australia




Also follow me on:

Welcome to my hub. My name is Louise Page and I am a qualified Professional Counsellor (Australia) Youth/ASD, Autism Therapist, Professional Illustrator, avid author (books and articles on Autism) and proud mum to three teenagers (ASD). I also enjoy writing 'silly' poems, rhyming and non-rhyming stories for children.

La Papillon is French for 'the butterfly'. The butterfly represents to me the beauty of natural transformation and the inner soul, which I continually see in my children as they grow.

Being a left-of-centre thinker myself, I enjoy reading the writings and theories of others who also take a different 'slant' on the many ideas, practices, beliefs and proposed 'knowledge' (especially on such which affect our lives and our environment) abounding today.

Some of my other interests include philosophy, geology, seismology, meteorology and a few other 'ologies. I'm also a keen observer of human nature and behaviour - reasons why people do what they do.

Thankyou for visiting my new hub and I hope you enjoy reading about the genres I explore and articles I have written.
