Emily Carrick

Panel Member, Play Therapist and Clinical Supervisor

How long have you worked in the foster care industry?

I started my foster care career in 1999, working with children who are looked after in residential care. I joined Mosaic in 2012. My sister-in-law fosters so I also have experience of providing some respite care.

What is your favourite part of your job?

Thinking together with foster carers and mixing together different perspectives to make sense of experiences and behaviours. When I am seeing children directly, then my favourite part of the job is the magic of our Play Therapy room. In relation to the panel, seeing a potential carer successfully parenting a year on is really special.

What do you most enjoy about working at Mosaic Foster Care?

The stability of young people staying with their family. I have worked with families who have been stable for over a decade! Also, I have seen successful moves between families and I think Mosaic always tries to think creatively about how best to support a family.

What has been the most memorable moment for you in your foster care career?

My most memorable moments are the magical periods in conversation and interactions with children and young people in the Play Therapy room.

What do you do to relax?

Read or watch TV

Which quote has influenced you the most in life?
