About Me

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.
