Mentor

I am an artist and art psychotherapist who loves to create. I studied Illustration at the Arts University Bournemouth as I was drawn to illustrating ideas for all to access. I then went on to study a Masters degree in Art Psychotherapy at Goldsmiths University. I have worked with individuals with neurodiversity needs for fifteen years and it is something I am especially drawn to.

I am especially passionate about working for D&A as I have personal experience of studying with a physical illness as well as having neurodiversity needs. My first experience of university wasn’t a positive one and I understand how difficult it can be to access support. My second experience, however, was a great one. I would like to be able to provide support to help those get the most out of their university experience, as I know how painful it is when you are not supported in your learning needs.

In my personal life I exhibit work as an artist and feel empowered by creating! I also love to cook, travel and swim as much as possible.
