I started working with the Teapot Trust in July 2020 on their pilot project with Southampton Children’s Hospital. This has been a really special opportunity to support a new group of young people and their families, as they navigate all the challenges of living with an illness.  

Since starting with the Teapot Trust I have worked exclusively online with young people due to the ongoing pandemic. As much as I miss all the fun and the mess of the art materials which you have in face-to-face work, I have enjoyed working with lots more young people who, otherwise, might not have had access to Art Therapy. 

Before working with the Teapot Trust, I offered Art Therapy to children who had experienced loss in Tanzania. I worked as a Senior Practitioner in a London Art Room at Place2Be. I have also offered Art Therapy within CAMHS and in a number of school contexts. 

When I am not working, I love spending time with family, running art mornings for busy mums, and making art and food from foraged things!
