Lucy is an experienced teacher and therapist, fuelled by creativity, compassion and a desire to encourage a healthy education for children by sharing invaluable information to parents and teachers.
A combination of her classroom teaching, her one-to-one special needs experience and her training has informed her choice to delve deeper into understanding the role of primitive reflexes. They are considered the fundamental neurological building blocks for all learned movement and skills. This has naturally lead to Lucy studying neuroscience and gaining qualifications in Rhythmic Movement Training which she initially provided in an educational setting and now offers in private practice.
Lucy is also the founder of Yoga on Paper (YOP). Her unique drawing programme has elements for all ages. YOP for the young combines story, movement and drawing; it is multi-sensory and fun. When practised, it provides children with the solid foundations for their early learning. 'Skilling up children before reading and writing’ is a phrase Lucy often uses to explain this process. YOP has bags of therapeutic value for older children and adults too, helping to develop mindfulness at any age. Lucy is currently designing a series of books and plans to add a digital element to YOP to enable her to reach more families.
