I am life long community workshop leader working with vulnerable adults, learning difficulties, women's refuge and offenders or those in risk of committing crime

Methodology

I most enjoy one to one connection, responding to human thoughts in the interactive practice and learning to distinguish the fine line between help and support. Judging when to stand back, how to encourage, how to acknowledge the small steps, draw on the positives, be receptive and respond flexibly to whatever situation arises.

Discovering the particular interests and pursuit toward creativity for a particular individual; then considering how to develop the ideas further - challenging myself to research in preparation time before tutor time

People with mental health or learning difficulties can hold deeply entrenched feelings of low self-esteem, low self-worth, disempowerment, fears and damaging negative thoughts which sometimes lead into crime. I know Inside Arts Community offers a platform for stability, love and confidence. Enabling participants to find their own means to tap into resources for strength and personal growth. Their vulnerability means that they are isolated, withdrawn from many forms of social interaction, lack self-confidence and motivation. They are often not able to express their feelings or even dare to define the hopes they may hold.

A healthy, creative, happy mind is one in which people are able to tap into the creative, building blocks, of their personalities, these are often masked by problems with learning, being able to make sense of the world or having the resources to work through emotional pain or to make the necessary small steps towards reconstructing a day to day living confirmation of self-independence and existence; ,met by acquiring basics skills, looking after one’s self, social skills or concentrating on a task to see through to conclusion, all of which have huge self-achievement values attached. This can all start to emerge in the right kind of supportive arena- a safe and happy place to allow one to process things out at your own pace.

Experience

I am a qualified teacher, trained in various safe guarding,mental health therapy, information governance social conditioning and institutionalised bullying .
I have taught for over 20 years
Most of my students pass there exams successfully with my support and guidance.
I practice Art in my specialist field everyday
