I am a qualified BACP Child Arts Therapist 🎨 and a published academic, with my Psychology Masters thesis about children at a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU).
I have over 10 years of experience working in educational settings; private, faith, mainstream schools and pupil referral units.
With children, I have a natural affinity, I see so much hope in them, and I want to offer them something I lacked as a young person; a trusted guide, who is able to sit with them empathically through both difficult and exciting times.
I learned this skill at The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, founded by Margot Sunderland, an inspiration of mine. I find Art Therapy to be an extremely effective medium for my work.
I believe that developing a strong level of self-awareness at a younger age can enable anyone to thrive and bat away the challenges life throws at us 🏏
I am seeking the following opportunities in this space:
- Academic Research
- Business venture collaborations
- Video venture collaborations
- Short-term art therapy clients (see here)
