I founded the first Master's level training in Art Therapy / Art Psychotherapy in Northern Ireland and led it since its establishment in 2002 at Queen's University where I was a Lecturer in Education (Special Needs), also teaching education, counselling and art therapy. I further evolved the MSc and established it at the Centre for Psychotherapy, Belfast HSC Trust. In 2015 I redesigned my course as Pluralistic and Trauma Informed Art Psychotherapy.. I later established it at another university, leading this until l retired as Senior Lecturer and programme leader in Autumn 2019. I continued to teach on the training until Autumn 2023 - I and a number of other tutors stepped away for ethical reasons. Since I retired, that course has been gradually reduced, significantly changed and led in another direction.
