MA Art Psychotherapy (Distinction) HCPC registered

About me

I'm David — an Art Psychotherapist registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council). I'm also one of three Art Therapists that form the Hackney Art Therapy collective, based at a therapeutic centre on Mare Street, east London. 

I’m currently offering weekly art therapy to people who need a safe space to freely express themselves. We start with an initial consultation, to see if art therapy’s right for you, and if I’m the right therapist for you. This is usually followed by a block of four to six weekly 50-minute sessions before we consider longer-term therapy. Please visit my website for more information and to make an appointment, or click the button above to book a free introductory phone call.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my art therapy MA training at Goldsmiths, University of London and have 30 years’ experience using art making and creativity as a means to improve wellbeing. I've previously worked as an Art Psychotherapist as part of Cancer Psychological Services at Barts Hospital.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
