About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative arts psychotherapist, registered with the HCPC, providing a safe and confidential space for the exploration of thoughts and feelings. I respect everyone is unique and has their own way of engaging with this process. As an integrative therapist, I draw on a range of approaches and resources. It is my hope that through engaging with the therapy you can achieve a better understanding of yourself, feel more fulfilled and make the most of your life.
I have helped children with complex mental health issues, people suffering from grief or loss, psychosis, severe anxiety and depression related to a number of factors such as addictive behaviours, past trauma, abusive relationships, work stresses, physical illness and conditions accentuated by the COVID19 crisis.
Alongside traditional talking therapies, I offer the use of other modes of creative and artistic expression. This can provide further and useful insight, resonance and self-understanding. Often this will involve drawing or painting a picture to express a thought or feeling. Other times it could be listening to music or discussing images, using clay or the sand tray. You do not need to have any experience to be able to engage with this aspect of the therapy. I have adapted these practises for both online or telephone sessions.
My first session
The initial session will be an opportunity for both of us to introduce ourselves and explore the areas that could be the focus of the therapeutic work. This will allow us to reach an agreement in the type of support that will be suitable and could take the form of establishing goals or allowing space to see what might emerge later in therapy. I will provide a detailed therapeutic client agreement to help establish a working alliance.
