Yvonne Farquharson is the managing director of Breathe Arts Health Research, a social enterprise that uses the arts and creative approaches to healthcare to improve health outcomes for patients, staff and communities, particularly for children with hemiplegia and cerebral palsy.

Farquharson, aside from running the social enterprise, is usually seen integrating adapted magic tricks with young patients as part of the Breathe Magic therapy programme. She shares what goes on in her day and how seeing patients improve their lives makes her work at the Breathe Arts Health Research worthwhile.
