Hi, I’m Louise and I work in museums and art galleries teaching people creative ways to improve their health. I develop and deliver creative health workshops, courses and curate exhibitions and campaigns.
I train museums and arts professionals around mindfulness and help them to understand ways their collections can support people’s wellbeing. I love to create creative health resources that are tailored to your communities and collections.
I’ve been the Health and Wellbeing Manager at Manchester Art Gallery for 10 years (and counting!), over that time I have developed specialist skills and knowledge around how culture and creativity can help improve people’s wellbeing.
I also work in schools and community settings.
Feel free to get in touch to talk about what you’re looking for, I’m always happy to chat about potential work.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Louise recently when she taught a masterclass for my membership community of international educators. With her calm, gentle teaching style, Louise has a real talent for combining theory with practice. She is wonderful to work with, has exceptional expertise in her field and is generous in sharing her knowledge.

The project went really well. All the schools involved have sent such lovely feedback.
I have specific feedback from one school involved that they really loved your exercises and would use them again!

Louise was a fantastic workshop leader, she was thoughtful, intelligent and intuitive. Her mindfulness course was well thought out and beautifully presented, and we had wonderful feedback.
