Helen Milward - Arts Therapies
Helen is one of the Joint Therapy Managers at the Eden Academy, 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 is still clinically based at Moorcroft but leads a team of Arts therapists (in Drama, Music and Dance Movement Therapy) who work across all of our schools.
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, 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.
