About Maggie

As a professional art therapist, Maggie has extensive experience in working with people of all ages and abilities who have experienced difficulties, whether physical, emotional or psychological.

"In my extensive career as a nurse at the Royal Children’s Hospital, I learned that children's healing improved when they were engaged in play, song or art.
"Realising the value and importance of art as therapy, I decided to enrol in an art therapy course in 2010 and have not looked back. I love that I can provide an avenue for healing and general wellbeing."

“Maggie’s knowledge and skills are beyond comparable. I have gained more self-knowledge from these eight weeks with Maggie than I have in years with psychologists. She has an extraordinary understanding of the connection between mind and body and presents it in a way that is easily comprehensible through art and movement.” Lucy, 2018
