I’m an Art Psychotherapist who is passionate about exploring difficult feelings and emotions through the use of the art medium in a creative and trusting environment. Working with adults, young people and children, I go with the pace of the client and encourage the use of playing with the art materials to explore a range of issues a person may be experiencing in their life.
My training is psychodynamic and I am especially interested in attachment theory and how a person’s early family life informs their present relationships. In particular, I work with people so they may explore themselves on a deeper level to overcome challenges, whether those are problems in relationships, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement or fears and worries about the future.
About My Work
With over seven years of experience working in adult mental health (within both a mental health hospital and community), both in the NHS and independent sector, and NHS CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), I have gained substantial and valuable experience working with people who present with mild to severe mental health difficulties.
I work with adults, children and young people to help support them through a range of difficulties, including worry, low mood, attachment difficulties and self-esteem issues. Furthermore, I support people through other presenting issues such as self-harming behaviours, eating disorders, and welcome enquiries from clients who experience neurodiversity. I offer phone or video consultations to discuss if my skills, experience and approach match your needs.
