For the last four years I have been working as a freelance facilitator producing creative workshops for early years/KS1 and their families and carers. I have worked for large theatrical organisations such as the Royal Opera House and the Ambassador Theatre Group, as well as in schools and community/youth centres. I am also highly qualified in developing workshops adapted for autistic young people using Makaton alongside theatrical activities. I am motivated by inspiring children to be creative, confident, independent thinkers and engaging with young people comes naturally to me. Nothing is more rewarding to me than being part of nurturing a person's potential and igniting their imagination and creativity.
