Kristina Stamatiou MSc Art Psychotherapist & HCPC Accredited
I am a HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist/Counsellor. I work from home at my private practice in North London, I provide a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for my clients to express and explore themselves . I work with children, adolescents, adults and elderly people from different cultural backgrounds, religions and gender.
Art Psychotherapy/Counselling is helpful for psychological, emotional difficulties, personal growth and self-esteem. Art Psychotherapy differs from many other psychological therapies, as it works as a three way relationship between the client, the therapist and the art itself. It provides opportunity for creative exploration, this exploration helps and provides emotional communication that may have otherwise been difficult to verbally articulate. Being such a versatile profession it meets the needs of most people and looks at issues in different ways which can help tap in to emotions that may have been suppressed, buried or ignored.
The therapy provides weekly, private and confidential sessions where we can both verbally and creatively explore past and present situations which may influence the way we behave and our thought processes. Participants do not need to have had any art experience.
I also work as an Art Psychotherapist at the Grief Encounter Organisation. Where my work focuses on bereavement with children and their families.
