I have over sixteen years’ experience of working with young people of all ages in schools, sports training programmes, summer camps and on specific creative projects working with mainstream children and children with special and complex needs.
I am passionate about the Arts and bodywork and love to fuse aspects of these together whenever possible. My background is in the Arts and I love singing, drumming, yoga and energy work, arts and crafts and am incredibly passionate about working in a creative and relational way when delivering sessions to young people.
I am a holistic Wellbeing practitioner who nurtures the wellbeing and potential in young people through promoting creativity and emotional literacy. Throughout my sessions I like to build in activities that help enhance self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence as well as communication skills and emotional resilience. I love using the Arts, play and imagination to facilitate this development in young people and am always so inspired at the power of working in this way.
I have completed a 3 year training at the Institute for Arts,Therapy and Education (IATE) in London and have graduated as an Arts Wellbeing Practitioner. The therapeutic and multi
disciplinary training has been very thorough in order to qualify me with the knowledge and expertise required for safe and effective practice.
My training has been informed by youth work and social work, mental health, therapy in Creative Facilitation, Communication and Children's Yoga make for a rich base from which to work and deliver sessions that come from the heart.and education. My trainings
