Hello and welcome to My Art Therapy Workshop!
I started this site to share my experiences with using art as a means of therapy.
I am a trained textile designer and have worked, on and off, over the years in various healthcare settings supporting and leading art classes for people affected by strokes, acquired brain injuries, deaf/blindness, autism and mental health issues.
Lately, art has helped me greatly during a period of anxiety and depression. Thanks to having worked alongside and having met some truly inspirational people dealing with their own personal struggles through art, I know I am not alone when it comes to finding my way through darker times and have witnessed the positive effects that being creative can have on people.
I would love to hear from others about their own experiences with using art as a means of therapy, so subscribe to my site for regular updates and also join me on Instagram!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a creative day!
