Art Psychotherapist MA, HCPC, BAAT. EFT Therapist

About me

Hello and welcome. I will tell you about my way of working. I am an approachable therapist with experience working with a range of emotional issues from a trauma-informed and attachment-based perspective. Maybe you have reached a stage in your life where you want to let go of ways of thinking, or behaviours that no longer support you. You may find that certain coping mechanisms you have developed are no longer working for you, and you are seeking support to find a new way of being in the world. Art psychotherapy enables a safe exploration of lived experiences. Through the use of art materials, you can communicate your inner world (your thoughts and feelings) and explore what is happening in your external world of relationships, work, family and lived experiences. You do not need to be ‘good’ at art, or have much experience with art-making, for art therapy to be effective.

It is a brave step to begin, or continue, your therapeutic journey, and I will be guided by your pace and adapt sessions to suit your particular needs.

Maybe you have tried therapy before and are seeking a new experience. Art psychotherapy utilises art-making as a form of expression and communication to help you understand your thoughts and feelings.

My additional training is in sensorimotor art therapy, which includes co-regulation through mindful movement and breathing. This can support your nervous system and your well-being. This is a ‘bottom up’ approach to therapy that strives to achieve emotional co-regulation through art-making, before moving into relational, and more cognitive approaches where appropriate. I have completed additional training in trauma, developmental trauma, childhood abuse, and self-harm. Art therapy has been shown to reduce cortisol and other stress hormones and can be useful when working with acute or chronic issues. I also provide Emotional Freedom Technique which can support you when you are letting go of old habits and ways of thinking.

My continuing professional development is important to me and my therapy practice, and I have completed further training with the Institute of Sensorimotor Art Therapy, Carolyn Spring Trauma Recovery, The EFT and Mindfulness Centre, and the Embodiment Centre so I can support you to work through any issues in a safe and paced way.

You can get in touch to begin our conversation. I wish you the best on your journey.
