Hello, I am an Art Psychotherapist and addiction counsellor.
I provide one to one Art psychotherapy for children, adults and students in training.
I also provide Art Therapy and Addiction Counselling for adults suffering with addiction difficulties and substance misuse or children and family members of addicts.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an HCPC/BAAT registered MA Art Psychotherapist with extensive experience of working with children, adolescents and adults in various clinical settings including NHS, education, private and voluntary sectors. I work with individuals on a one to one basis and work with groups and families offering a support network around the client.
I practice from a client led, person centred approach underpinned by my psychoanalytic/psychodynamic training. My professional interest is in Object Relations and Attachment Theory underpinned by the theories of Bion, Klein, Laing and Winnicott.
I have degree in Fine Art and have also created my own brand of Jewellery. I bring my calm and boundaried approach and artistic outlook to all job roles, helping people gain empowerment and confidence through self-expression. I believe the art process in Art Psychotherapy offers another symbolic language where an individual can express what is going on for them in their inner world in a contained way, enabling the process of change, self reflection and recovery.
