"Alicia's classes have been an amazing and deeply rewarding experience. She has a particular talent in finding creative ways to get attendees to explore interesting and compelling forms of expression and interaction. As someone with a longstanding history of mental illness I have found Alicia's classes immeasurably helpful. Her classes have greatly helped with self-confidence, coping with anxiety, as well as achieving and maintaining a positive outlook". David – clown workshop participant (2018-2020)
