"I completed my art therapy training at QMU in 2007 and completed my Professional Doctorate at QMU in 2016. I was interested in becoming an art therapist because creativity seemed like an obvious way to help children young people to explore their feelings and have their voices heard. Since qualifying I have worked with children, young people and families affected by homelessness, and trauma, and more recently physical health conditions. I have been a Teapot Trust art therapist since 2015 and it is a privilege to work alongside the children and young people and be part of their journey and recovery in a service where the emotional impact of physical health conditions is recognised."
