Whilst doing my Fine Art Degree in Hull (1990 - 1993) I became interested in the psychological aspects of creating art, especially as a form of communication and expression of emotion. This led me to do the Postgraduate Diploma in Art Therapy at the University of Hertfordshire. Since qualifying in 1997 I worked as an Art Therapist in the NHS (Humber & East Riding of Yorkshire) for 18 years.   Referrals  were through the Children's Learning Disability Team (CTLD), Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAHMS) and across Adult Mental Health Teams both in-patient and community.
