What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

I want to become a leading force to create positive social change using the therapeutic tools of theatre to inspire and make a fundamental difference to individual lives especially children. I believe that theatre has the potential to change lives and should be accessible for everyone regardless of background. It can help to tackle sensitive issues in the third person or talk about situations which maybe too difficult to discuss directly. I’m incredibly grateful that I have been able to use theatre to overcome obstacles in my own life and I want to share this tool with others. Throughout my work I want to create a safe, comfortable environment, one, which is inclusive and open to everyone to practically engage with, creating new relevant approaches for change. This is one that is not an escape from reality but which is a journey enabling transformation to discover the true self. I believe that no one need suffer alone or be held back by circumstances they have been born into or are currently facing. I believe that each person has an inner potential and through support in taking personal responsibility regardless of circumstances has the ability to change past experiences. I want to be this support and positive influence to whomever I encounter. I strongly feel that this needs to be delivered in a fun manner, the use of laughter and enjoyment are an important part of any work I do in this field. This type of work is deeply fulfilling for me on a personal level. I am keen to introduce the arts to people who have little or no engagement with it. Dramatherapy enables me to combine my two passions. I have been offered a place to train to be a dramatherapist at Derby University and unfortunately the fees are quite high (10,600 for the two year course) and I am not eligible for any funding programmes. I would be extremely grateful for any help you can offer no matter how small to support me on my journey.

    I had a great week with the lovely young people I've been fortunate to be working with. We made t-shirts with our future goals on, they had amazing ideas: interpreter, astro physicist, volunteering in developing countries and many more. I love working with them, I'm feel so grateful for having this opportunity to create value through my work. I need your help to support me to be able to develop and use my skills further. If you are able to donate £5 -10 I would be really thankful. Check out for photos http://bit.ly/2wWobou

    My 10x10 campaign has begun! Having a great week working with some amazing Young People in Sheffield. Lots of laughing and feeling proud. Now it's time for some rest with this beauty! Still busy fundraising so far I have raised £234.29 towards my target of £10,6000 so thats only £10,365.71 to go. I start my Dramatherapy course in Sep 2018 so that gives me 10 months left to fundraise. So my new 10x10 campaign is to raise £1000 each month for 10 months. I will be starting to do some fundraising events soon, so watch this space. Have a lovely day

    My long term aim as a Dramatherapist is to set up my own practice working in my local community in UK whilst also setting up international projects in particular in Africa which I have always felt a strong connection to. I was extremely fortunate to have been chosen to take part in a volunteer project 2009. I supported the community in Mamre a village in South Africa for 2 months. My dream is to return to Africa equipped with dramatherapy skills to work and support children who have experienced trauma due to circumstances beyond their control.
