My enthusiasm for working with people spans near 30 years across the arts, education, and personal development industries: in a diversity of locations, with people of all ages, and from many backgrounds, cultures and circumstances.
My work is firmly rooted in a commitment to informed practice, creative interaction and holistic well-being; and the knowledge that these things promote joyful participation, resilience, and connection with a more equal, thriving Society.
In addition to working with clients and students, I am a published poet, writer, and editor; a practitioner of sensory and socially engaged arts, and a tutor/lecturer/trainer in Adult Education settings. I find balance in this busy and demanding life by spending time immersed in the natural world; through participation in cultural heritage: and through developing connections between these with my family and friends.
I am also familiar with creating new beginnings from the ashes of what has passed, and with transforming survival into thriving.
