Art therapy background
I have considerable experience in delivering various art based activities to a diverse social demographic.
I have worked with people who have mental health issues, those who live with dementia, individuals who are physically challenged and I have an extensive therapeutic background in working in the health and social care field.
I have demonstrated my art skills in various residential care facilities in my capacity as a facilitator of promoting the exploration of personal creativity.
Whether I am tutoring a group, or working one to one, I aim to help build confidence, encourage social interaction, establish a relaxed, informal environment to allow friendships to develop.
I have worked extensively in the mental health sector. My experience is that art acts as a means of communication between people of all ages and backgrounds.
