MINDFULNESS PRACTICES FOR CHILDREN
These activities are the fruit of my 15 years of work experience as an ASD specialist. In addition, I combine them with the skills learnt from studying holistic and mindfulness practices from talented teachers in London, Bali, and elsewhere and, finally, the wisdom I’ve gained from my personal healing journey during the last 9 years.

Creativity has always been present in my life, but when I was a child, my low self-esteem stood in the way of me unleashing my full potential. I used to compare my work to my older sister's and think I could never create art as good as hers. Despite it, I often sought comfort by painting and drawing when I was ill. Especially during extended hospital stays, creating art has always been soothing. After my last remission, I consciously decided to drop any judgment or labels and express my feelings through art. It was so freeing. If you are interested in purchasing one of my artworks or commissioning a piece, please click here to get in touch.
