About me

Hi, I'm Janette, it's great you've found my profile. I often find that people feel the thought of purely Talking Therapy is scary, or too intensive, and so I offer a creative model of Therapy which often feels less so. Sometimes a person does not have the words to express what they're feeling or experiencing but through using a range of art materials, clients often find it easier to access and process their thoughts, feelings and experiences. It doesn't require any skill in art, as it's more about the process than in producing a 'masterpiece'.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm an HCPC registered Art Therapist, with a BA (Honours) Degree in Psychology and a Masters's Degree in Art Psychotherapy. I'm a Member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and I adhere to the HCPC and BAAT standards of Professional conduct.

I have several years of experience in various schools in the North Yorkshire area, working in an holistic way with Children and their Families, young people and adults of all ages. Alongside this work I run a private Art Therapy Practice on the outskirts of Harrogate, with easy access to Ripon, Knaresborough, York and the surrounding areas.

I have experience working specifically as a Bereavement Counsellor, Couples Counsellor, and Domestic Violence Counsellor and ongoing experience of working with Individuals and small groups with a wide range of presenting issues.
