I am a Dramatherapist who specialises in working with children and young people. In addition to my Masters, I hold a Community and Applied Performance Ba (Hons) degree. I have over ten years of experience working with young people within the youth justice system and individuals struggling with identity issues. I believe that life has many end destinations, but through patience and support, we can all learn to re-write them.
I have travelled internationally and around the United Kingdom, making use of my training at Identity Drama School, National Youth Theatre and Birmingham School of Acting. I have performed as a Spoken Word artist to raise awareness around sexual exploitation and domestic violence, collaborating with 'Women's Aid' and 'Young inspirations.'
Dramatherapy allows people to express without words, breaking down the divisions of race, culture, religion and Politics. Dramatherapy uses the healing aspects of both drama and theatre within the therapeutic process. It is a method of working and playing, which uses an action to facilitate creativity, imagination, learning, insight and growth? I use a person-centred approach, empowering clients to be in control of their wishes and feelings? Using movement, art, role play and reflective practice, I enable you to start telling your story.

Before the age of 20, I had experienced homelessness, grief, identity loss and a miscarriage. But before the age of 27, co-launched the first youth homeless Parliament, completed both my Ba honours degree, Masters degree and became a mother. My Childhood blueprint told me that al my achievements would not be possible, but instead of walking a path that aimed to destroy me, I made a new one.
During the last eight years, I have performed as a Spoken word Artist. Whenever, I have felt lost, confused and alone. I used my pen to create poetry that was unapologetic and expressive, to remind others that they too are not alone. In 2017, I decided I wanted to able to provide support for others, who struggled to write a new path!
As T.D Jakes states " If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose."
In the year 2020, we have realised that the world moves faster through technology and if you don't know how to make use of it, then you will be consumed by it. Through understanding art, music and dance, we communicate with those who struggle to express themselves verbally.
