MindJam Founder / Owner
My years of experience in teaching, music, computers, working with children, coding, graphic design, and also being a parent of two autistic children, have led me to founding MindJam. There are so many amazingly talented children who are lost, struggling and feel they don’t fit in. My goal is to build their self esteem, confidence, and ease their anxieties all whilst honing their skills and abilities to help them reach their incredible potential.
I've been a teacher for over 20 years, I've helped thousands of children to play instruments, game design and code. In these sessions I have gained great experience in being a good listener and mentor to these children and have often helped children gain confidence and overcome obstacles.
I've recorded and released albums and singles, been featured on BBC and Channel 4, played at the London 2012 Olympics, taught the youngest grade 8 rock guitarist in the UK and won awards for songwriting and web design.
I am fully DBS checked, have full safeguarding training and have completed an accredited Counselling Children and Adolescents course. I am also very experienced in working with and helping children with ASD, ADHD, PDA, Anxiety, Trauma and other mental health issues.
All of our amazing team come with years of experience working with children with a range of mental health issues such as ASD, PDA, ADHD, Anxiety and Trauma. As well as this they undertake regular training to ensure that we are providing the best support possible to young people when they need it most.
We'd love to hear from you.
