Create Sheffield 

Author of Sheffield Adventure "Sensory Circuits Sheffield"


I am passionate about connecting with nature and aim to maximise such sensory-rich and therapeutic opportunities for all. Through my work I hope to support and inspire others to provide flexible and creative approaches that are engaging and beneficial for learners with complex needs. 

Originally training as a secondary teacher of French and Spanish and gaining a Global Teacher Award  I also strive to promote active global citizenship throughout my work.

As eco-anxiety is ever more palpable amongst young people, I am currently working hard to develop ways to acknowledge this and to inspire hope and action. Some of my courses refer to the climate emergency and explore ways for educators to approach the subject with learners of all abilities. 

I really hope you will tap into this unique combination of expertise. Do get in touch to discuss how we could work together.
