Amy joined WWCIH as a trustee having successfully used the videos to support her own daughter Sosi who was born with a condition that has resulted in multiple hospital admissions and invasive procedures. Coming from a psychology background and having worked extensively with children and families, Amy believes that knowledge is key when preparing children for hospital. When children and their parents and caregivers have the opportunity to ask questions and understand what is involved, it makes preparing for the event much easier; ultimately reducing anxiety and supporting good emotional and mental health and wellbeing. This is at the heart of the WWCIH ethos and is what drew Amy to the organisation.
Amy's background is in training and development predominantly within the voluntary sector. She now works as a yoga teacher and hypnotherapist where she supports children, families and individuals.
