Introducing Simi Valecha...

06 May 2016

We'd like to introduce Simi Valecha in her new and exciting role within BAAT.


We'd like to introduce Simi Valecha in her new and exciting role as BAAT Business and Marketing Manager.

Simi brings a wealth of experience to her new role. Having qualified in graphic design she then worked at the BBC for a number of years organising Opinion Former Events. She returned to her artistic and creative roots a few years back, hence the career change into Art Psychotherapy.

We asked Simi to say a few words to introduce herself...

'Hi everyone,

My name is Simi and I’m the new Business and Marketing Manager here at BAAT.

It’s a very exciting time for Art Therapy and I’m thrilled to be part of an organisation on the cusp of real progress and potential. My goals are to support the business needs of BAAT and find opportunities for optimal promotion and strong alliances within our vibrant world of Art Therapy.

I am also an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist Trainee in my second year at IATE.  I love the challenge of juggling a demanding job, being a student and maintaining an NHS placement at the WLMHT.

Do get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions. I’m really keen to hear from our members about how we can support you in your journey as an Art Therapist. In the meantime, I’ll get back to my spreadsheet… (geek alert!)'
