Huge congratulations to Josie Mahoney, Art Therapist in palliative care for winning the Creative Counselling Initiative of the year award!


Josie was nominated by her manager at Demelza House children’s hospice, for this prestigious award at the Towergate Insurance Inaugural Care Awards. On 10th March Josie was presented with the Creative Counselling Initiative Award.

This award is for counsellors who have changed the lives of their clients through employing various creative techniques that have been seen to have made a real difference.

The award also recognised that, at times, Josie has had to be flexible in her approach as an Art Therapist, especially when working with children approaching the end of life.
