Janey AJ Cutting, Integrative Arts Psychotherapist HCPC & UKCP reg.
Who am I?
I am a registered HCPC, (Health Care Professionals Council), Integrative Arts Psychotherapist, which means that I am trained in using arts therapies alongside talking therapy. Clients find it very useful to creatively explore issues and feelings using a wide range of mediums to help describe and transform their life situations. Using the imagination, metaphor and non-verbal expression can help to accelerate the healing process. You do not need to be artistically talented to work in this way.
In my previous career I worked as a musician and have found that using music in sessions can add a deeper layer to the therapeutic journey.
I am also a UKCP, (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists), Clinical Psychotherapist. My approach draws on a wide range of theoretical techniques which are used to match the needs of each individual client. This could be informed by Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic, Attachment-based, Existential, CBT and Mindfulness techniques.
How can I help you?
I can help you with a variety of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement and loss, depression, self-esteem and identity, relationship problems, addiction and trauma.
Where does the therapy take place?
My consulting studio near to Arundel is a safe, contained and confidential space that enables you to express whatever you need to. The nearest train station in Amberley but is situated in the South Downs National Park and so best accessed by car. There is always a parking space available outside for clients.
What happens during the initial consultation?
During the initial consultation we will take the time to explore your reasons for therapy, the frequency and duration, fees, and get a feel for how we might work together.
