Megan joined the Teapot Trust as an art therapist in January 2020. She is based in Newcastle and provides art therapy services in the Great North Children’s Hospital in the Bridges hospital school and the rheumatology department. Megan offers one to one sessions on the hospital wards and runs online groups for patients at the hospital. Megan also works at Collingwood school and media arts college one day a week and provides online art therapy sessions for several Teapot Trust projects, providing as many opportunities as possible for children and young people to try art therapy, to meet others with similar experiences and difficulties and to explore through creativity. 

Before joining the Teapot Trust Megan has worked in mental health hospitals, schools and on lots of art projects in north east England and in Helsinki, Finland. Megan studied Master’s fine art and glass making in the UK and Finland before qualifying as an art therapist in 2019. 

Outside of art therapy Megan loves swimming and trying out new recipes and crafts but her favourite thing to do is going on adventures with her dog Ash, the Italian Spinone, who loves exploring the countryside and looking out for birds and squirrels to make friends with!
