Hello, my name is Jeannie Lewis. In my professional life I am an HCPC Dramatherapist and Clinical Supervisor.
I work with children in schools and Special schools.
As a Dramatherapist I help children to express feelings and difficulties which they may find hard to talk about or explain, using art drama or play. This can help both emotional and behavioural issues in all areas of life.
I have a special interest in working with children and young adults on the Autistic Spectrum and I have published work in this area. I am delighted to be a School Governor at Waterside and Kings Oak especially at the exciting launch of the Imperium Federation.
I hope that my understanding of how children and families sometimes struggle in school will give me a useful insight into the challenges and achievements of the Federation.
