It took until I changed therapists and started working with an Art Therapist a couple of years ago to realise how much I needed a creative practice that wasn\'t my day job (graphic designer). Through working together I\'ve learnt how much art, photography and the written word help me to work through feelings and subsequently when I don\'t create for myself, how much of an impact that has on my depression. I currently use an Instagram account to explore words and photography @courageandcuriosity whilst dabbling in abstract painting to explore emotions.
