Tell us a bit about yourself

I was a theatre director for many years and passionate about young people's access to the arts. My work is studied on the school drama curriculum. My company, Shared Experience, travelled the world with our productions but nothing beats the high of working with the amazing TIS delegates and trainers. Since training as an arts psychotherapist it's been a privilege to join this wonderful team and to feel the transforming power of TIS practice.

What do you want everyone to know about TIS courses?

I never cease to be astonished by the impact of this work and the courage, compassion and creativity of our delegates. I wish everyone could access TIS and believe that through empathy and connection we can create a seismic change in our communities..

Favourite joke?

What sits at the bottom of the sea and shakes? A nervous wreck.
