Emma Cameron, MA. Integrative Arts Psychotherapist UKCP, HCPC
If you're a thoughtful professional person who values creativity and the arts, Integrative Arts Psychotherapy might be the ideal approach for you.
It's an evidence-based form of psychotherapy/ counselling that taps into the deeper wisdom held in areas of brain and body that we can't always reach through verbal language or conscious reasoning. (Because let's face it: You're an intelligent person. If your issues could be solved through rationally thinking your way out of them, you'd have got that covered long ago!)
I particularly specialise in treating anxiety disorders, including:
- panic attacks
- aftereffects of trauma
The skills and exercises I use for treating your anxiety are evidence-based and will be tailored and adapted specifically to fit your unique needs. My training and techniques are grounded in recent discoveries in the field of neuroscience; and I regularly attend additional trainings in order to keep up to date with the latest relevant scientific discoveries and methods.
Integrative Arts Psychotherapy actually isn't about being good at art, so there's no need to worry about your art skills! It's an effective way of helping you access your inner wisdom, and express your feelings using different parts of your brain.
The art therapy process can lead you to feel calmer, more peaceful, and connected to a positive creative energy inside. Discovering yourself through images and arts materials, in the context of the relationship with the therapist, can lead you to new insights, free you up, and really help you move on with your life.
What might we use?
Felt-tip pens, crayons, pastels, charcoal, pencils
Clay and play-dough
Visualisation & imagination
(Note: You will never be expected to use an art form that you'd prefer not to use!)
So, if you're a thoughtful professional person who's been feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and stress - and if you yearn to understand yourself more deeply and get in touch with your own creative energies again, so you can get on with living life to the full - contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.
I see clients in a dedicated Art Therapy studio in Wivenhoe, Essex. Wivenhoe rail station is a short walk away; buses from Colchester are frequent; and there is plenty of street parking available.
I also see clients online: video (like Skype), live chat, and email counselling are all options.
Contact me on 07515 937 027 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your free 15-minute phone consultation so we can see whether I might be able to offer what you need.
