Fiona’s art therapy career started in London working with adults with mental health difficulties in a range of community and specialist settings. Moving to Leeds enabled Fiona to broaden her experience and currently Fiona manages and practices within a child and adolescent psychotherapeutic service providing art therapy to children, adolescents and parents.
