I  am an HCPC registered Art Therapist, from the University of Chester. I have a background in children’s illustration and community art workshops

I have over a decade of experience working in various care roles, systems and settings. I have worked across all ages, from babies and toddlers up to the elderly. I am passionate about working with people and providing safe and nurturing therapeutic care, using art as a non-verbal means of communication. 

My first and most important aspect to my work is to provide safe and nurturing spaces. My aims are to build a sense of safety (internally and externally), community, form a foundation for healing, improve confidence, self-worth and self-fulfilment in life.

I love to learn and incorporate new ideas and ways of working in my practice. I practice using a trauma-informed approach and believe the mind-body connection and nature is hugely important for recovery, mental health, and wellbeing. My therapeutic style also incorporates other approaches such as; CBT, meditation, mindfulness, grounding, breathwork, music and nature and eco-therapy (through materials or working outdoors) in my work.
