Eve Jones (HCPC Art Psychotherapist)
Sometimes we just need a helping hand, and your emotional health and wellbeing needn't be any different. Working together, I can support you to navigate thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe, non-judgemental and creative way.
I am an HCPC accredited Art Psychotherapist, and art making invites another helping hand that enables there to be additional way to explore and be thought about by yourself and by me. You don't have to be good at art to engage in art therapy, but open minded to the possibility of art helping to find expression for what can not be said in words.
I invite you to use art materials in our sessions which you can use in any way you choose. Art making isn't for everyone, so if this doesn't feel right for you, words are enough too.
My work is informed by a psychodynamic framework, which is the study of the psychological forces that underlie human behaviour. This thinks about your unconscious and conscious feelings, how these might relate to your early life experiences and how these inform the here and now. Coming to therapy allows us to develop new awareness and helpful insights in a reflective way.
We can schedule a free 30 minute initial consultation to to discuss why you are thinking about beginning your therapy journey, and aims you have in mind which you would like to work towards.
In our work together, you set the pace, I take your lead, remaining open, calm and sensitive to you.
