About me

Hello, I am an Art Psychotherapist
I provide one to one Art psychotherapy for adults and students in training. I am also available to provide one to one and group Art Psychotherapy for sessional work in schools and charities. 
I have experience providing Art Therapy for adults suffering with addiction difficulties and substance misuse and can offer therapy to adults in recovery and to children and family members of someone with an addiction.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an HCPC/BAAT registered MA Art Psychotherapist with extensive experience of working with children, adolescents and adults in various clinical settings including NHS, education, private and voluntary sectors. I work with individuals on a one to one basis and work with groups and families offering a support network around the client.

I practice from a client led, person centred approach underpinned by my psychoanalytic/psychodynamic training. My professional interest is in Object Relations and Attachment Theory underpinned by the theories of Bion, Klein, and Winnicott.

I have degree in Fine Art and have also created my own brand of Jewellery. I bring my calm and boundaried approach and artistic outlook to all job roles, helping people gain empowerment and confidence through self-expression. I believe the art process in Art Psychotherapy offers another symbolic language where an individual can express what is going on for them in their inner world in a contained way, enabling the process of change, self reflection and recovery.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
