Instructor / Therapist Bio

Julie’s journey from the corporate world to education highlights her passion for helping others and making a difference in their lives. After working in sales and marketing for many years, she transitioned to education and training of young people and adults, eventually becoming a Deputy Head specialising in pastoral care. Her experience in supporting students and their families through challenging times such as substance abuse, mental health struggles, and financial difficulties has taught her the importance of authentic connections.
Recognising the value of building meaningful relationships based on truth and care, Julie started the Art of Connection with a former colleague. Through this initiative, they aim to support people in connecting with themselves and others, helping them embrace their most authentic selves. This can contribute significantly to personal growth and happiness. By offering guidance, workshops, and resources, the Art of Connection helps individuals develop the skills and understanding needed to form genuine connections with others, leading to a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

It’s inspiring to hear about Rosie’s passion for helping people and how it has led to the creation of “The Art of Connection.” The power of human connections cannot be overstated, and it’s heartening to know that there are people out there dedicated to helping others experience that same sense of connection and fulfilment.
Art is a unique and wonderful way to express emotions that cannot always be captured in words, and it’s amazing to hear how it has helped you personally. It’s true that sometimes during tough times, we need to rely on our connections with others to get through them, and art can be a valuable tool for understanding and connecting with ourselves.

“The Art of Connection” is a truly transformative experience, one that can deepen relationships and foster understanding between loved ones. It is a space where people can come together to explore the power of art and connections, and we hope that many will be able to benefit from this wonderful initiative.
