I am a qualified Arts Psychotherapist with an interest in mental health and other communication issues such as mutism and autism. I have experience working with disabled people too and enjoy making other people's life's more meaningful and to find connections by providing a welcoming and empathic space within which they can express themselves. I have some experience working in addictions. I can work with children and adults and would initially offer three sessions on a sliding scale from £10.00-40.00 depending on people's current situation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been trained psychodynamically in Art Psychotherapy but am also trained in Person Centred Art Therapy. I have many years experience of shadowing some great Art Psychotherapists as well as running groups on acute mental health wards and also working in groups and one to ones with children with emotional and communicative needs.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
