About me

Hello there, my name is Rachael, I want to start by explaining what it is I can offer you.

I offer a fully comprehensive service, I am an experienced Art Psychotherapist, currently based within a forensic setting. My work history has involved working with Children, adolescents and adults.

As an Art Psychotherapist, I am trained in both therapy and art and have studied and mastered both psychology and human development, having received a Master’s Degree.

As an Art psychotherapist, I am able to work with people of all ages, sex, creed, et al. I can help an individual, a couple, a family, or groups of people and depending on the situation.

Art therapists are trained to pick up on nonverbal symbols and metaphors that are often expressed through art and the creative process, concepts that are usually difficult to express with words. It is through this process that the individual really begins to see the effects of art therapy and the discoveries that can be made.

I deal with a wide range of difficulties and pride myself on my work and my ability to communicate with anyone. I have a lot of experience within my field and could offer excellent references upon request.

In addition to my Art Psychotherapy qualifications, I am a fully qualified NLP practitioner, this adds to my skills and offers another additional service.

I am a very compassionate, friendly and caring person, who strives to help and support people who are struggling and are in need of some support and guidance. I feel my approach to be accepting and non-judgemental, willing to support and help anyone that feels they may need it.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified Art Psychotherapist with a Masters degree, I have over 8 years experience within this field and in addition to this I am more recently qualified as an NLP practitioner with 2 years experience in this field.
