I started working for the Teapot Trust in the autumn of 2014, initially running open groups in the rheumatology department at the Children’s hospital in Glasgow, providing a creative outlet for children attending the outpatient clinics. I have also provided one-to-one sessions for the Rheumatology department and worked on the children’s oncology ward in Edinburgh. A number of years ago I moved to work on the children’s psychiatric wards, having worked with the under 12’s and currently adolescents.

In the past 14 years I have worked in a number of other settings in health, social care and education providing art therapy to children and families and currently work with young offenders in prison.

In my spare time, I enjoy being creative, most recently jewellery making and also love roller skating or being outdoors in nature; walking or in my garden.
