I passionately believe in supporting emotional wellbeing through creative art. I am also a qualified Woodwind Tutor and use crafting, drawing and fun creative thinking games to inspire and ignite your thinking and learning.
I have a BA (hons) and the CT ABRSM (Certificate of Teaching - Associated Board of the Royal School of Music) and over 25 years teaching experience in private and LEA education. I mentored people from all over the world as a Master Guide for the Master Key Experience.
My Self Discovery journey began around 2010. Following two divorces and a relationship breakdown I found myself facing life alone again as a single mother to my three children. My work as a visiting peripatetic woodwind tutor was no longer fulfilling me in the way that it once did. I felt lost, alone, miserable and had no idea what to do. I knew there had to be more to life than what I was living but I simply didn't know how or where to start to create the change I so desperately wanted.
I started making and selling my own craftwork in 2010, but I missed teaching. I tried Network Marketing, but was rubbish at it. However, it was through this experience that the world of Self Development and Quantum Physics opened up to me, and for this I will be forever grateful.
Never had learning anything taken so much effort and been so much fun. In 2013 I was recognised as one of the top 3 achievers for an intensive 6-month self discovery course, The Master Key Experience. I trained as a Guide and then a Master Guide and mentored people from all over the world for two years which was an amazing opportunity.
In 2014 I left my school teaching to start my own business. My clients absolutely loved my programs and everything was going really well. But I began to feel unsettled and still lacked the confidence to really step up and make myself visible. It was time to dig deeper and release emotional blocks that were affecting my self belief.
I began to recognise how the death of my father when I was a young girl had impacted my life. All the puzzle pieces were slotting into place. Releasing emotional pain was crucial in order for me to continue my own coaching and mentoring business. The seeds had been planted throughout my life and it was now up to me to nurture them into full bloom. I trained to help people move past grief and I use creativity to help them tap into their own passions again.
I believe you can't teach what you don't know, and having experienced the pain of loneliness, heartache, low self confidence and how the fear of being me has kept me stuck for years also created a solid foundation from which to understand and help others. Investing in myself has been the single greatest gift I could ever have given myself. I know my purpose is to facilitate others to feel joy through the power of creativity and whole brain learning as they reignite their creative inner genius.
I believe we all have unique gifts to share, yet too often the very things that make us feel joyful and free are squashed out of us through various life experiences and an educational system that does not embrace whole brain learning. As Einstein said, "If you just a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing it is stupid." Some of us were born to swim, and it is through both logical and creative thinking that we will achieve our greatness.
