I started working for the Teapot Trust in Feb 2020, to provide Art Therapy at the Great North Children's Hospital. The post was to work within the Rheumatology department and with Bridges School which is in the hospital. When the lockdown started about a month later, we moved to working online. Since then, I have provided 1-1 and Dyadic Art Therapy to young people and their parents over an online video platform. It's been a privilege to work with the young people and see their confidence grow in each session.

I qualified and registered as an Art Therapist in June 2019 with an MSc with distinction in Art Psychotherapy from Queen Margaret University. Since then, I have worked as a Resilience Coach with adults and in an NHS Trust in a CAMHS team. Currently I work as an Art Therapist for various therapeutic charities including the Teapot Trust.

Outside of work I like to do different types of folk dancing and Scottish dancing. I love going on walks and seeing how each season changes the environment.
