I founded the first Master's 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). I further evolved the MSc and established it at the Centre for Psychotherapy, Belfast HSC Trust, and subsequently at Ulster University.
