AJ Cutting (Janey), HCPC Registered Art Psychotherapist
97 Mortimer Street
As an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist I am trained in using arts therapies alongside talking therapy. My approach draws on a wide range of theoretical and creative techniques which are used to match each individuals needs.
I can help you with a variety of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement and loss, depression, self-esteem and identity, relationship problems, addiction and trauma.
I work in a safe, contained and confidential space that enables you to express whatever you need to. As well as talking, a session may include working with arts materials, using the imagination to access a deeper understanding of non-verbal processes. You do not need to be an artist to work in this way.
