Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Sile Molloy is a fellow Transpersonal Art Therapist here in Australia. I met Sile last year when she very kindly offered to help me with the orgainisation of a film festival during Mental Health Month.

This youtube clip is a beautiful piece of visual storytelling which outlines Sile's journey to becoming an art therapist.
