Experienced and Educated Writer Specializing in Psychology, Mental Health, Spirituality, and all things "the mind".
My name is Steven Pace. I'm a professional psychology writer specializing in mental health and all things “the mind”. I live in Atlantic Canada with my wife, father, and most would say far too many kitties (as if there were such a thing).
From the time I was old enough to form a memory (and perhaps earlier) I was fascinated by this thing we call the “mind”. It could be a result of the vivid dreams, the night terrors, temporal lobe epilepsy, or any of the other (there were many) influences on my early psychological development. My entire life I’ve been driven to learn as much as possible about how we perceive “reality” and beyond.
I call myself a psychology writer for the sake of keywords (thanks Google), but I’m far more well-rounded that the title may imply. I’m an experienced and educated writer with an extensive background in psychology and scientific research.
Over the past 20 years I’ve completed literally hundreds of projects for a wide range of purposes, including news articles, study materials, professional manuscripts, informational internet content, and (of course) for my own academic endeavors. After a decade of alternating between studies and freelancing, I received a BSc. in Psychology in 2010 and continued to work as a university research assistant for several years before focusing on other endeavors.
My default writing style is a conversational mix of plain language and academic terminology (where appropriate). I make it a point to never introduce a potentially difficult term without making its meaning clear within context of the piece. At the same time I don’t shy away from complex subjects.
I believe it is a writer’s duty to take intricate ideas and communicate them in a way that’s understandable for the majority of their potential audience. This is especially true for a psychology writer. I aim to be creative and insightful while also providing guidance. With that said, I have no problem loosening (or tightening) up the tone in order to fit your needs.
