Diane Esguerra

Diane Esguerra is a writer and a psychotherapist. After studying English at University College, London, she trained as an actor. For several years she worked as a performance artist in Europe and the United States. Disillusioned by the paucity of challenging roles for women, she began writing for theatre and television and is the recipient of a Time Out Theatre Award and a Geneva-Europe Television Award. Her plays have been performed in countries as diverse as Canada and Nigeria.

Diane has since written two travel memoirs: Junkie Buddha: A Journey of Discovery in Peru (2015) (a new edition of which is to be published under the title: Night into Light: A Journey of Grief and Transformation) and The Oshun Diaries: Encounters with an African Goddess (2019).

After training as a psychotherapist at Sussex University, in 2007 Diane established the counselling and life-coaching consultancy, Greenlight Healing and Personal Development.

Diane came across Buddhism in the 1980s and has been practising ever since. In her spare time she enjoys walking and wild swimming.
