(MA) Art Therapist, talking Therapist/counsellor, HCPC

About me

Hello, my name is Daisy. I am an (MA) qualified art psychotherapist registered with the HCPC.  I offer art therapy in a safe, peaceful space working with children, young people and adults. I Am also able to offer typical talking therapy. 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. Many clients come to me for typical talking therapy/counselling. So please do not he put off by the art therapy which is promoted on my website ☺️
