About me and my therapy practice
My name is Jess and I have worked as an art therapist since 2007. I now have a private practice where I can offer you personalised and thoughtful counselling or creative therapy.
Some people come to creative therapy because it is difficult to find words that adequately describe their experiences. Some people choose this out of a sense of things just not feeling right; in this case creative therapy can help bring meaning and satisfaction into their life.
In addition to counselling and creative therapy I can also provide EMDR, a treatment that is very effective for managing the impact of trauma and where memories of trauma are causing distress or difficulties in everyday life.
I have extensive experience of working with adults, children and young people who have difficulty with anxiety, low self esteem, challenging behaviours, learning disability, who are stressed and unhappy, who are struggling with a diagnosis, who have experienced loss or traumatic events. I also work with families across a range of issues.
If you are curious about how counselling, creative therapy or EMDR can help please get in touch. I will be happy to talk with you and aim to respond promptly.
I work from a peaceful, rural setting with lovely views within a short distance of Worcester and with good access to the M5. I have an MA in Art Psychotherapy and work in an integrative way combining good counselling skills with creative thinking. I use lots of different techniques and like to attune sessions to your interests and needs. Sessions may involve CBT, mindfulness, mind-body work, story telling and art work all of sorts.
I often work with people who have found talking therapies difficult or with young people who are struggling to find the words for what is troubling them.
I work face to face and have a Covid-19 risk assessment in place that I can discuss with you. I also work online and this is at a reduced fee of £35 per hour. In some circumstances I can work from a child's school or home but we would need to discuss this.
My first session
In your first session we will talk about what has brought you to counselling/therapy and what you hope to get from the process. You will be able ask questions and think about the way you would like to work. We will work together to create an individual, highly personalised approach to your therapy that we both feel is achievable.
Where the referral is for a child or an adult who needs support, then the first meeting will need to involve the referrer, parent or guardian.
Children and young people can feel nervous about coming to therapy so the first session is very relaxed and focuses on making them feel safe. Sessions can be creative and fun; this is so I can make sure it feels safe enough for the child/young person to put trust into the therapy and working with me. I enjoy working with young peoples interests and this can be a useful way of exploring creative therapy.
