I enjoy using Drama and Storytelling in a variety of ways including:
developing improvised pieces and enabling participants to explore their own creativity
developing confidence
team building
exploring issues and challenges
as a consultation tool

I am able to provide advice and expertise as well as training and workshops in the following areas:
• Using drama and arts to teach across the curriculum
• Using drama and the arts to develop personal and social skills
• Using drama, arts and storytelling techniques in the classroom
• Creative team building sessions
• Applying storytelling techniques to improve communication
• Increasing confidence through drama and storytelling
• Developing theatre through improvisation
I tailor sessions to achieve particular aims and objectives and can provide workshops for teachers and pupils.

I am a trained drama-in-education specialist and have taught drama to all ages, used drama techniques to facilitate learning and team building, run training sessions and directed theatre in education and participatory children’s theatre.
