About me

I am an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist trained at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. I currently work in Mortimer (off A33, nr junctions 11 & 12, near Reading and Basingstoke).
The use of varied art materials in psychotherapy allows for expression and exploration of feelings and issues that may be difficult to put into words. It is not necessary that a piece of art is created but only that you bring a willingness to use the arts to explore yourself and your concerns.
As a client no training in the arts is necessary.

I also provide EMDR which is an effective, short term therapy, often offered in longer 1.5 hour sessions.
This may seem like a very different approach to the using the arts but I have an interest in working with trauma and find that they do integrate well with my use of creativity for soothing and containing as well.
I am currently completing my training in EMDR and as a result am offering this for issues like a single incident traffic accident or trauma but am not offering EMDR for more complex cases.

I am a member of the UKCP and a BACP Member.
