Wendy Durell has a private therapy practice, she is an Art Therapist in an infant school and she also runs a therapy supervision practice.
People come to Art Therapy for many different reasons. Art Therapy is a creative form of psychotherapy and can be helpful for a variety of concerns. Some adults want help with something that is troubling them, others simply want to learn something more about themselves.
Wendy offers an opportunity to think with another person in a confidential setting. Sometimes a one-off consultation is all that is wanted. At other times a first meeting leads to further exploration and a regular weekly appointment is made.
People who come to Art Therapy need have no previous experience or skill in art. Some clients (adults and children) prefer art-making to talking. Others choose to talk and many use a mixture of both.
Wendy is an experienced therapist who has worked with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings. Adults consult her for a range of issues such as anxiety, bereavement, depression, separation and loss, stress and trauma. Sometimes parents contact her with concerns about their children. As well as providing individual therapy she carries out work with whole families.
In her therapy supervision practice Wendy offers supervision to qualified practitioners as well as those in training. She has worked with art therapists, dramatherapists, counsellors and psychotherapists.
