Marianne Adams

Marianne Adams is a senior Art Therapist practicing in Ireland, and a registered accredited member of IACAT. She worked as a Senior Art Therapist in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for 7 years, was Head of Therapy in a group of residential children's homes for 2 years. While living in Paris she set up the Children's Arts Network, which funded specific arts projects for children in established therapeutic relationships. For the last 7 years Marianne has been seeing children and young people at her private practice in West Cork. She is commissioned privately as well as by the local CAMHS, Child and Family Psychology Department, Social Work Department and by local GPs.

Marianne also lectures on the Art Therapy MA based in CIT/Crawford College, and on The Certificate for Principals in Art Therapy. She is currently engaged in designing an 'Infant Observation' module for the MA, bringing the traditional model of 'Infant Observation' and Art Therapy together in an exciting and innovative way.

A particular area of interest for Marianne has always been working with children and young people no longer in their birth family. She has researched and written on this subject, as well having invented 'Come & Get Me Then…', a board game to help children in foster care who may return to their birth family.
