My name is Emma Brockhurst and I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist.
I am currently only offering therapy for people aged 18+.
Regular art therapy sessions are currently unavailable due to the lockdown, but I am offering Therapy via Zoom and Social Distancing Therapy in a private outdoor space. To find out more about this please visit my website.
Training, qualifications & experience
After graduating from Birmingham City University in 2010 where I gained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art, I took my passion for creativity and combined it with volunteering in various mental health settings. After years of working with people experiencing a wide range of mental health issue I started my training as an Art Therapist. In 2017 I graduated from Hertfordshire University with a Masters degree in Art Therapy.
Alongside my private practice I also work in several different art and therapy settings, and I am also a practicing artist.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
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.
