Rebecca felt her boundaries were not respected by family members and work colleagues. We worked together for four months at fortnightly intervals for the first two months, followed by monthly. Rebecca came to my studio so these sessions were face to face. At the start of each session I listened to what Rebecca wanted to get from the session and then suggested a way of working based on what she’d told me.
I joined the Vertigirls in March 2017. Vertigirls is a climbing club for women with ‘additional needs’ and it’s run by Christine, who is a passionate and inclusive leader. The main objective of the club is to empower women through the sport of rock climbing. Just before club’s trip to Cornwall in August 2017 Christine decided to make a film to enter into the British Mountaineering Club’s Women in Adventure Film Competition. Christine engaged Katy Beswetherick as camera-person and they hired a DV camcorder. Katy is a climbing coach with no experience in making films. After the trip Katy and I got together to look at the footage and I offered to edit the film.
