About me and my therapy practice
I want to help you to find your own strengths and ways to cope with what life has thrown at you. I will be alongside you as you explore what you need to find more peace in your life. We can talk, we can use art and craft, we can be together in nature (“ecotherapy”) in my garden and see what happens to make things clearer for you. There is no pressure to use art materials, or to be in nature, but I have found over the 14 years I have been an art therapist that they can help in many ways. Sometimes words are not enough or we cannot find the right words. Art and nature give us different ways to think about who we are and where we fit and belong in life. I am a warm person and want to help you find a way forward in a safe and supportive environment. You can look at my Instagram account “Naturetabletherapy” to see more of the outdoor space and get some idea of who I am.
I work both from a room in my home in central Ipswich and in my garden. You can choose which space suits you best. I will not give you a task or picture to make as we will just see how things unfold and which materials you are drawn to. There are a variety of art materials and natural objects for you to use, but you do not have to be an artist or even feel you are “artistic” to find art therapy helpful. The non-verbal resources in art and the natural world can help us to explore things that words cannot express on their own. Seeing ourselves as part of nature and its rhythms can be calming and reassuring and make us feel part of a larger whole.
I am registered with the HCPC as an Art Therapist..
My first session
I would like to help you decide if therapy is something you want to try. We can have a FREE chat on the phone initially to answer any questions you might have or to explain more about how I work. If you then decide to take the next step, we can then arrange a face to face meeting. I understand that paying for therapy can be a daunting prospect in the current financial situation so we can think together about what is possible for you.
