About me

With 20 years of experience working with mental health diagnoses and emotional difficulties, I help depressed and anxious clients, and those experiencing consistently failing relationships.

Mums who've experienced a difficult birth can feel traumatised and less attached than they would like with their infant. My skills here have been positively evaluated.

Clients sometimes know something is wrong or very difficult and painful, but they can't necessarily express it in words: this is where dramatherapy is positively helpful, offering access non-verbally as well as verbally to your creativity.

Using aspects of drama, story and metaphor, and most importantly safe, agreed boundaries in the sessions helps clients feel heard, acknowledged. Many children and adolescents come from divorced homes: in these sessions families can be together with parents and say very difficult things in a safe, therapeutic space. "There is a real shift in our feelings about how we can work things out together now" (one family's evaluation).

Average length of treatment: 12 - 20 weeks.     Springtime 2017 fees: £50/£35.

SUPPORTIVE NEW STARTER GROUP FOR DADS

6 WEEKLY SESSIONS, MARCH AND APRIL 2017

With LAURAINE LEIGH KLUGMAN and SYDNEY KLUGMAN

As Arts Psychotherapists we’ve been working with adults and families in the NHS, in private hospitals, and in schools and privately for many years. Single Dads, married Dads and separated Dads who we work with as clients tell us they’d like the chance of meeting with others, in a professionally boundaried, safe space to think together about being a Dad nowadays.

So this is the result, and it’s for Dads of all interests and ages. We provide the safe, comfortable space in Newbury. You email us initially, telling us a little about yourself.

£25 per session, 1 ½ hours.
