Mental Health Coaching
using creative arts
I am a mental health resilience mentor and positive psychology educator based in the beautiful city of Lincoln. I have a relaxed and person centred positive approach in which, among other things, I support clients, either 1:1 or in small groups, to use images to tell difficult stories. I work mainly with young people and adults.
I successfully completed the PCATS (person centred art therapy skills) Diploma in 2016 from APCCA (Association of Person Centred Creative Arts) to add to my portfolio of qualifications which include positive psychology skills training, Diploma in Psychological Interventions for Eating Disorders (NCFED) and nutrition coaching.
I run a social enterprise called ActiviTea CIC which works out of a community art studio (Art Ninja HQ) in Lincoln offering a safe space for all to create, relax and feel better. I instigate creative projects in the community to create community through creativity - it is lots of fun but the serious positive impact to mental health is the focus. I have experience of working with all ages from my time as a roaming subject specialist art teacher in schools to being in private practice since 2016 in Cambridge and Lincoln.
I am comfortable working remotely or in person. I do gently encourage participation in group projects which I find can help with creative anxiety and combats isolation.
I champion neurodiversity and am proudly neurodiverse myself.
Always happy to help so please get in touch to discuss how I can support you.
