About me

Have you ever become engrossed in a doodle or a scribble? I believe there has always been much in common between creativity and healing, whether it is through image making, music or any creative pursuit, the creative process enables a restorative and expressive journey to heal and recover. My interest in arts and creativity combined with my experiences of working in the NHS led me to train as an Art Psychotherapist and I am able to offer private individual sessions from my studio practice near to Biggleswade. I am also able to offer group work and clinical supervision.

Art Psychotherapy is an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings through the medium of art. Art psychotherapy can help improve confidence, self esteem and communication. Art Therapy is non-directive and non-threatening and verbal responses are not always necessary - it relies on alternative means of communication other than speech. No previous experience of art making or artistic ability is required.

For further information please call or email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in the adult and child mental health field where I have worked with people suffering from depression, schizophrenia and psychosis. I also have experience of working with people who have substance misuse issues, people with a diagnosis on the Autistic Spectrum, including Asperger's, people with a Learning Disability, and individuals who have no diagnosis but wish to enter into therapy to enable change in their lives.

I have facilitated one to one sessions and therapeutic art based groups for over 10 years with a range of different client groups in both residential and community settings, working with children, young people and adults.

Alongside my private practice I facilitate Art Psychotherapy sessions for charitable organisations and local authorities. I am a member of The British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and The Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).
