About Craft Conscious

Ed's Story

In 2015, I started on an unexpected journey that led to creating Craft Conscious CIC.

Initially inspired by the tragic loss of my best friend’s son Ed in 2012 and well-meaning but sometimes shocking comments even years later, coming from an artistic background, I decided to provide support through creative crafting sessions for those struggling with grief.

Over time, our focus expanded to include individuals with disabilities and chronic illnesses caused by both personal experience and the recognition that unresolved grief and trauma can manifest physically.

I continued my professional development, obtaining certifications in Grief Recovery and Edu-Therapy.  I started to work in mental health as well as with private clients who were struggling with the long-term effects of significant childhood trauma.

About Craft Conscious

My Story

My personal experience of childhood trauma, late diagnosis of autism and ADHD and the estrangement from my parents, who lacked the understanding and willingness to learn about my conditions and the grief around missed opportunities, made me more determined to advocate for late diagnosed neurodivergent women and chronically ill and disabled people.

This also means helping others who might not share such lived experiences to understand and be able to support friends, family, and colleagues. 

Drawing on my roles as an educator, accredited coach, and certified mentor, I developed tailored training courses addressing topics such as late neurodivergent diagnoses, trauma, self-care without guilt, and Dealing with Grief.

I want to normalise talking about Grief and Mental Health. Integrity, Transparency, Fair Partnership, Respect, Compassion and Kindness drive my vision.

My mission is for everybody to feel comfortable addressing grief and mental health issues without fear of being judged or experiencing shame.
