Who Am I?
My name is Devaki Anne-Marie Thomas, I am located in SE London, UK, I moved here from Western Canada in 2008 with my husband and 4 sons. I have spent my life-time working in the arts as a festival/event producer/director, multi-disciplinary performing artist and arts marketer while raising my family. As an artist I specialize in music performance and instruction (drums, percussion, vocals), classical Indian dance performance, instruction and choreography (Odissi & Bharatanatyam) and composing music to collaborate and perform with dancers. With a recent qualification, a Masters in Movement Psychotherapy, I am collating this with my experience as an artist to help people heal through movement and sound. I bring a passion for working with people, for sharing my own healing journey, for offering empathic involvement and sharing my skills and experience to enrich the lives of others. I have worked with clients ranging in age from 3 to 68 years and bring a strong sense of empathy for helping people understand and express themselves to enable more self-compassion and self-reliance. Welcome to my space, bless....
