Eden O Shoro - MA, HCPC, BAAT
My model of practice is person-centred and holistic, informed by Jungian theory. My sessions are client lead and individualised, so the client sets the pace. Working together, we aim to build a safe, nurturing, confidential space that is empowering and supports self-discovery/recovery.
Within my sessions, clients are invited to use their imagination and creativity to explore current challenges. Through a combination of art-making and talking, clients of all ages are empowered to tap into their inner strengths, and to use those strengths to create connections with themselves and others. I believe that every individual has the power to discover new ways of interacting with the world.
Expressive Art Therapies have powerful healing potential.
‘Art gives a voice to that which cannot be spoken’ - Eden O Shoro

Sometimes it is difficult to find the words to describe your emotions or how you are feeling.
Art has the potential to heal. The art making process and creative therapies can be a reparative and a holistic approach for people to develop new ways of being and relating, while gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and building on self-empowerment.
Do I have to be creative or good at art? You do not need to have artistic skills, just a willingness to explore what is holding you back. The art produced in our sessions represents the process not the product. This unique non-verbal therapeutic process promotes discovery and recovery naturally.
If you are suffering from anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bereavement/loss, relationship or family problems, co-dependency, career issues, or substance misuse, art therapy can help.
My model of practice is person-centred and holistic, informed by Jungian theory. Our sessions are conducted confidentially in a safe and nurturing environment.
