Throughout my life I've always been drawn to helping others, from helping my bully with her school work when I was 12 to more recently helping 1000s of young people develop their self-awareness, esteem, motivation, confidence and skill through creating and delivering engagement programmes in partnership with schools and colleges.
I am driven to explore, discover and learn. Particularly around people in relation to sustainability and the environment.
Communication is important to me. I've developed knowledge and experience in mentoring, coaching, non-violent communication, working with challenging behaviour, training, teaching English as a foreign language, ambassadorial work, IAG, people management and working horses. I am qualified in People Management, Training, Mentoring, Stewarding, Project Management, First Aid, IAG, Fine Art- combined media and TESOL. I've trained in art psychotherapy, volunteer management and NVC.
My love of nature combined with recent trauma has led me to explore and discover sociable, low-impact, sustainable living through working the land in the UK and becoming self-employed. I have developed my skills, knowledge and experience in gardening, living out of doors, foraging, permaculture, growing veg, small holding, working horses, animal care and woodland management.
Looking for some support? I am always interested in community, personal and social projects that effect sustainable change, get in touch!
