I started working with the Teapot Trust in April 2023, providing online group art therapy sessions for children and young people within the rheumatology department at Crosshouse Hospital, as well as offering in-person and online one-to-one sessions.

I have offered Art Therapy in school and healthcare settings and worked as an Art Therapist for The Holistic Centre for Integrative Care in Glasgow, as well as in primary and secondary schools. I have an MSc in Art Psychotherapy (distinction) from Queen Margaret University, graduating in 2022, and I am registered with the British Association of Art Therapists and the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have worked extensively with children and adults with disabilities and my MSc dissertation explored creativity, Autism, trauma and chronic pain. Prior to this I studied Contemporary Art Practice at Leith School of Art, and have an MA in Medical Anthropology from Edinburgh University.

Through art making and talking, I hope to make connections between life experiences and how children feel, and take the time to pay attention to emotional and physical experiences that may be confusing and distressing. I enjoy exploring lots of different art materials and it is a privilege to get to know the children and young people I work with, and see what they create!

I am originally from Bristol and now live in Glasgow, and I enjoy painting, making ceramics, watching films, cooking, dancing and going to the beach. I also co-facilitate a meditation group for young people.
