Karen Jones

Karen Jones is a dramatherapist and specialises working in education. Throughout her career Karen has worked in community arts, creatively building and developing projects, addressing the social development and domestic needs of children, young people and their families. Her work in 33 local authorities provided her with a good sense of social demographics, and the scope to have a greater understanding of traumas and suffering that can hinder learning, social development and affect the well-being and mental health of so many children and young people.  Karen is an advocate for TELCO (The East London Citizens Organisation) and has a passion for fairness and developing local areas where children, young people and their families can feel safe.  As a clinician and artist Karen has combined her skills to develop and promote the need for early therapeutic intervention, recognising that it has not only saved lives but can be life changing.
