Museums. Wellbeing. Mindfulness.

Hi, I’m Louise and I’m a museums and wellbeing consultant. I work with cultural organisations to develop and deliver wellbeing workshops, projects and exhibitions.

I have over 12 years experience of arts and health practice. Working as Health and Wellbeing Manager in Manchester Art Gallery means I have specialist knowledge and experience in museum practice and the health sector. I’m hugely passionate about using culture and creativity to improve people’s wellbeing.

I train teams around mindfulness and collections, deliver creative wellbeing workshops and create resources that are bespoke to your audiences and objects.

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. 

Gráinne Flynn, Education Coordinator, MIF

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.
