My approach is psychodynamic using a variety of art materials, sensory objects, the small world figures together with the sand-tray. Using the art materials can ease the process of exploring the client's current issues in a non-verbal manner initially. It also supports the client's process in being in touch with the emerging feelings and thoughts and provides a safe verbal approach to exploring the difficulties. I focus on developing a strong therapeutic alliance to provide the holding and containment for our work together. Being very empathic and supportive I understand the difficulty of the client's explorative therapeutic work.If you would like more detailed information about art psychotherapy please see the British Association of Art Therapists website:http://www.baat.org/About-Art-Therapy or feel free to contact me on 07914478507
