Facilitators

Sandra Barefoot

Creative Co-Lead

Sandra Barefoot is The Forgiveness Project’s Creative Co-Lead. She has worked with us for over 13 years, and for 11 of those years she ran our prison programme RESTORE. Sandra’s extensive experience of using the creative arts to facilitate group processes exploring trauma, shame and pain has led her to understand how vital creativity is to express what can be the most difficult and almost impossible route – that of forgiving ourselves.

Anne-Marie Cockburn

Lead Facilitator

Anne-Marie Cockburn has used writing as a source of exploration, imagination and self-actualisation since she was old enough to pick up a pencil. It wasn’t until she reached adulthood that she realised that not everyone reaches for the pen every time life becomes challenging. She refers to it as her fourth emergency service and over the past 15 years Anne-Marie has facilitated/co-facilitated workshops using creativity and writing to help encourage dialogue and healing.
