I am still training but my counselling work has really inspired me to become more creative and I hope one day to combine both my loves, crafts and therapy into a full time business.

I feel inspired by providing a space for people to become creative and express through art and crafts what they are unable to due to illness. I know this work has really inspired me to continue and make my hobbies into a business.
