About me

Hi, my name is Rhoda. I operate a private Art Therapy practice on the premises of Jigsaw Community Counselling Centre. Since 2010 I have worked as an Art Therapist with children and young people and I have considerable experience in working with a wide range of issues including trauma, bereavement, anger, anxiety, depression and low self – esteem, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

Art Therapy helps children and young people to explore their world and work through any difficulties or problems they may be facing. In a safe and supportive space I gently encourage children and young people to use art materials and creative processes as a way of expressing thoughts, feelings and ideas that can be tricky to put into words. My aim is to provide a genuinely caring, professional and confidential service so that children and young people feel supported as they learn to cope with challenges, develop resilience, build self-esteem and move forward with confidence.
