Angela Bagum

Angela Bagum trained as a Nurse twenty years ago, having originally studied at Art College. As a Mental Health Nurse, Angela has been privileged to work with a wide range of individuals, children and families in the areas of Addictions, Mother and Baby, Adult Acute, Forensic and CAMHS services across the continuum of mental health.

Angela is a visiting lecturer at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and works in the Add | Wellbeing service, supporting organisations through a ‘whole systems’ approach to organisational wellbeing. Up until recently, Angela worked in the Lighthouse Multi-Agency Service, supporting children and young people in their experience of sexual abuse and exploitation, in Camden.

Throughout the years Angela has maintained her art practice and is currently combining her experiences of art and mental health by training to become an Art Psychotherapist.


“We chose to develop the ‘Maintaining Hope in Uncertain Times’ course in recognition of the fact that we are currently experiencing a collective trauma. And, while we are all in the same storm, we are not all in the same boat, so many of us are going to be affected differently by what we experience. The course aims to bring together mindfulness, compassion focused therapy ideas and narrative applications, introducing these to our everyday lives at home and to our agile working approaches. We hope that knowing “it’s ok not to be ok” will provide the motivation to notice oneself and allow space for a mindful tea break, for example, when it’s most needed.”
