Helen Milward - Arts Therapies

Helen is one of the Joint Therapy Managers at the Eden Academy Trust, and has responsibility for the Arts Therapy service.  She has an MA in Drama and Movement Therapy and trained in the Sesame Approach.

She has worked at Moorcroft School, one of our family of schools, since 2009, and then became Head of Therapy for the Academy in 2012. Helen works clinically and leads a team of Arts therapists (in Drama, Music and Dance Movement Therapy) across all of our schools. Helen's work at the Trust has led to many opportunities to develop research, present and offer training both externally and internally.

As one of the Joint Managers, she is part of a management team along with Jean-Paul Van Weert and Alison Futerman, who have responsibility for Physical and Speech and Language Therapies respectively.  They meet regularly to discuss how therapy operates across the Eden Academy Trust, and agree on the service that we provide our parents and pupils.  They also work closely with the Heads of each school to ensure best practice and a multi-disciplinary approach.
