Work History

From April 2013

Thoughts of Others, Springhill High School

From February 2013

The school has been developing a multi-discipline team of counselling, speech and language therapy, music therapy, parental support akin to Triple P and art therapy. The provision is arranged to be pupil centred and of a dip in/dip out nature if required, countering many of the pupils inability to adhere to ridged appointment times at external agencies. I currently work with 4 individuals, there being some restrictions to my caseload due to the prior establishment of a teacher relationship with many of the pupils. Their presenting difficulties include self-esteem, personal expression, sexual abuse, anxiety, attachment disorder and self-harm.

GSCEs as preparation for teacher training

MA Art Therapy

1997 - 2006 After I completed my BA in 1997 I moved to Arizona for 6yrs and worked as a freelance graphic designer, however, it was also during this time that I re-thought my career and the notion of art therapy, first discovered at the age of 17yrs. On my return to the UK I worked as an in-house graphic designer for a stationery suppliers, re-took some GSCEs as preparation for teacher training, a path that would provide me both opportunities for flexible work and appropriate experience to gain a place on the MA Art Therapy.
