Daisy Sanderson (MA) Art Therapist, talking Therapist, HCPC registered
Hello, my name is Daisy. I offer talking therapy and art therapy in a safe, peaceful space working with children, young people and adults. I am a fully qualified Art Psychotherapist, registered with the HCPC and a full member of the BAAT. I am passionate about healing people, being able to support them and aid them to live more content lives with a prospect of a more positive future. Since the pandemic there has been an understandable rise in reports of anxiety and depression. If this is something you or a loved one is facing, I would like to help you through this.
I offer a gentle, compassionate and none-judgmental approach working in a person centred way. My therapy space is called “The healing cottage”. It is a small, holistic and peaceful studio at the bottom of my garden. It is a beautiful, safe, calming space offering art materials for those who want to explore art therapy, toys for young clients who may wish to do play therapy, a coffee machine, beautiful surroundings and comfortable seating
