Natacha trained at Chelsea Art College, she is a professional Artist, a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Counsellor. Natacha has facilitated Visual Medicine since 2009, working with groups and individuals in the UK and internationally at Retreat Centres. She has also taught Visual Medicine at the Clean Break Theatre Company, a centre for women with experience of the criminal justice system and at risk of reoffending.
“Natacha's Visual Medicine classes provide a safe, nurturing, insightful and inspiring space to express my self through painting. The meditation helps me to paint from within and the sharing of our thoughts and feelings of our paintings produces such wisdom that not only has increased my creativity in my art but in my life too. I'm forever grateful to have met Natacha, she has nurtured my inner artist with kindness, grace and love and given me a belief in myself that goes beyond myself as an artist.” - C.A.
Victoria has been working with neuro-diverse adults in an education setting for 18 years. An integral part of her work is helping individuals to re-frame how they see themselves by changing the old stories that are holding them back. She has various teaching qualifications including a PGCE in adults and a Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties.
Victoria has been evolving a creative practice for many years as a tool for her own personal development. As well as experimenting with drawing and painting, her practice has been informed by doing a Certificate in Imagination and Creativity, Reiki Level 1 and 2 training, mindfulness/self-compassion and of course, Visual Medicine.
Victoria discovered Visual Medicine in 2013 when Suzette Clough's book was recommended to her and she has been hooked ever since. Having found the practice so powerful herself, she would like to share it with others. Victoria and Sarah Scott are facilitating their first workshop in March 2019.
Victoria is based in London, UK.
