I am a therapist, artist, and writer, inspired and energised by the connections between wellbeing and creativity, whether it is the sheer joy of making, the deep satisfaction of creative expression, or the transformational possibilities of working with images.
For as long as I can remember, writing, making, drawing and painting have not only brought me great pleasure but have been ways to connect with the world inside me and around me, and this has grown into ongoing learning about creativity and wellbeing.
I believe we're all creative, and that creativity takes countless forms. I also know that we can easily lose contact with our innate creativity for many reasons. My passion is bringing people back into contact with themselves, through therapy, creativity, and all the places where they intersect.
Currently I'm exploring the possibilities of therapeutic and intuitive writing, for healing, self-discovery, and wellbeing. I am also developing how I work with images; the internal pictures of our inner world and those expressed and explored through art and language. Curiosity about our inner world is beneficial whether we have old wounds to heal, or simply want to feel more expansive or in touch with ourselves.
Skytree is where I bring together the strands of my work as they continue to develop and merge. The name ‘Skytree’ is a reflection of the subtle relationships between what takes our attention, and the spaces in between, which are never empty but full of our untapped resources. There is always more than what is apparent, and this informs everything I do; therapy, workshops, and my own creative and wellbeing practices.
I am influenced by ancient wisdom, cutting-edge approaches, and my connection with nature. I believe that we naturally know how to live well, and feel well, and do well, but also sometimes need guidance to put us back in touch with this knowing. I am grateful to my own teachers and mentors as I continue to learn and share what I can as I go. I hope you will find something here to help or inspire you.
