I started working with Teapot Trust in the autumn of 2014. I really enjoy my work with Teapot Trust, working within the remote areas of Highland in the North of Scotland. Since Covid-19 affected our lives, I have met with children and families online for their sessions, pleased to have been able to stay connected with them during these difficult times.

It has been fantastic to be able to reach more families this way as some may live miles from Inverness in rural areas. Helping children, young people and parents to feel supported throughout their journey of ill health, is an important task. My work enables the young people I support to make positive steps in both managing the challenges of their condition and moving forward with their lives. I do this by providing a safe space to explore how people feel, which helps them to make sense of what is happening to them.

Over the last 20 years, my work has been about supporting to help individuals to develop confidence, resilience and recover from difficult experiences in creative and therapeutic ways. In 2013 I founded Green Tree Arts Studio a creative hub for people to explore themselves through art and nature as a means of self-expression and personal development.

Outside of work I enjoy going on dog walks, being outside in nature and making art.
