About me

Hello and welcome. The work we may do together should be a journey towards openness and engagement. Although this journey can be fraught with anxieties and questions I can provide you with a safe therapeutic space to explore them.

Art looks both outward and inward, forming a tangible link between our everyday and the subconscious world of emotion. It provides a safe  and contained way to explore emotions.  There is no need for technical expertise or experience and there are some who choose not to make art, they are welcome too. The task is coming to know and accept ourselves and to build our relationships with others.

Training, qualifications & experience

1977-1981 Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art
Diploma: Drawing and Painting - Full Time.

2002-2004 Queen Margaret University College                      
PGDip: Art Therapy - Full Time.

I have worked with children who have had disrupted childhoods and in adults too, I look for that child with their unresolved issues in the present. It is our relationship with our inner child that shapes our experience throughout our lives. This is the principal of psychodynamics underlying my work.

I have practiced art therapy now for 14 years and managed art therapy interventions within Health and social care for 6 years, supervising art therapy students, co-running groups and providing 1:1 sessions. Working in blocs of 5 sessions I have practiced brief interventions and longer term therapy.
