BoB's Online Facilitator

I’m so pleased to be a member of the BoB team as an online facilitator.

I started going to the online BoB groups early in 2021 when I was in a pretty bad place, with a lot of unhelpful coping strategies to try to work through. I found great comfort within the community, and I would structure my days around the groups that worked for me. They literally saved me.

A little earlier, my mum gave me a paint set and encouraged me to take up painting again after a 30-year break. Art continues to provide me with an outlet to try to express what was going on inside me as well as expressing my take on the world around me. 

I started facilitating the online art group for BoB in 2022, where I saw others feel and see the benefits that art can bring. I went on to facilitate the creative writing group and last year, I started taking on other groups, which I found equally rewarding in different ways. Having been a teacher for over 20 years, I’ve been able to transfer many teaching skills to facilitation, for an organisation I feel passionate about. 

As well as art, I enjoy walking in nature with my dog, playing tennis, spending time with my husband and two boys and travelling when I get a chance.
