As a registered member of the The British Association of Art therapists (BAAT) and the Health Professions Council (HCPC), I have worked in "a special school" with children who have been excluded from mainstream education, helping both the children and parents to find ways of communication through creativity.
As a registered private practitioner with BAAT, I have also been working with women and adolescents from home (and recently on Zoom) and provide supervision for art therapists.
I have extensive experience working within in the above sectors.
I am a Doctor of Philosophy and my PhD discusses women and body image using clay as a tool for reflection. I have had work in numerous publications, and Routledge has recently published my book on Clay Work and Body Image in Art Therapy. I have participated in and curated sculpture exhibitions throughout my career. I work from a Humanistic perspective that emphasises empathy.
