29A St. Marys Street
I am a BAAT registered private art therapist practising in the Cambridgeshire region, currently accepting referrals. I have over 30 years experience, in a number of mental health settings within the NHS. The relationship in therapy is the cornerstone of my practice and how this plays out in the triangular relationship between client, image and therapist.
There are many reasons why people choose to come to therapy, from mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders, to experiences of abuse and trauma, alcohol and substance abuse, and bereavement. Art therapy can be particularly beneficial for those who have previously struggled with other types of talking therapy, as the image can be used where communication is difficult. For example, I have worked extensively with individuals with learning disabilities and autism, who benefited from the approach.
I am able to offer individual art therapy, group art therapy, and assessment and report.

The foundation of my theoretical base is broad as I use a tool kit of theoretical understanding developed over many years which I adapt according to the identified needs of the individual attending therapy. The main grounded theory I use is Attachment Theory as it helps us forms a fundamental understanding of how we relate to others through which we first experience our sense of self and gives us our blueprint for how we relate to others.
