About me

I aim to offer a safe non judgemental therapeutic space to support you in making sense of yourself and current concerns. 

I bring a humanistic, creative and warm approach. I draw on a range of different therapeutic tools to support you in disentangling difficult feelings and experiences.

Sessions can involve a variety of art making and talking.  Art can be used as a tool when it may be difficult to verbalise and explore the unconscious. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a state registered Art Psychotherapist, registered with HCPC and a member of the British Association of Art Therapists

I have been working as a qualified arts psychotherapist in the NHS for several years in a variety of settings. I have a particular interest in adult mental health and working with those who experience psychosis and complex needs.
