Why I became a therapist
I worked in Theatre in Education for a number of years and saw the positive impact that theatre and drama on Mental Health and wellbeing. I then went on to do my Mental Health Nurse training and Dramatherapy training. I really enjoy enabling young people to express their thoughts and feelings through a creative medium such as story, music, image making or role.
My interests outside of work
I have recently moved to the Coast and love living near the sea. Our family have got a new puppy called Skadi who loves walking on the beach. I am very interested in the effects of nature on our wellbeing and emotional and mental health.
