About Me

Dr Mia Hobbs, Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist with a passion for knitting and spreading the word about the therapeutic benefits of knitting.  I am based in London,UK.

I work with children, young people and their families who have mental health difficulties, and alongside this I run therapeutic knitting groups in local schools.

 I am also the host of the Why I Knit Podcast - a podcast highlighting how knitting can benefit our mental health. In each episode I interview a different knitter about why they knit and how knitting benefits their mental well-being.

Therapeutic Knitting Groups

Patreon Knit Night for health professionals
Would you like to join a community of healthcare workers who use knitting to benefit their wellbeing?  We meet for a monthly virtual knit night on Zoom and have a community group on Discord.
