About me and my therapy practice
Everyday life throws up challenges which can effect our emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual state. Therapy provides a safe environment to talk about anything you want to. Exploring issues such as relationship difficulties, physical and mental health concerns, loss, self-confidence and self-esteem can make a real difference. When words are not enough... the creative arts are used alongside talking therapy to give a different perspective and help make sense of your experience.
As a Counsellor and Art Psychotherapist (Art Therapist), both talking therapy and time with the creative arts is used to express, explore, and make a mess if needed. The focus is on inner experience, your feelings, perceptions, and imagination. If you wish to use the arts, I offer traditional art materials, sand tray, sculpting materials, and printmaking.
My approach is person-centred, being compassionate and non-judgemental, listening and tailoring sessions to your individual needs. I offer both short and long-term therapy. No previous artistic skills or experience is necessary.
I am registered with the BACP, HCPC (Health Care Professions Council) & BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists).
My practice is within a modern building, easily accessible by car and bus routes. The space is located on the first floor, with a wheelchair lift and toilet facilities. The room is large, bright and comfortable, giving plenty of space for both talking and creativity.
My first session
Finding the right therapist for yourself is important. Therefore the first session is an opportunity to meet each other, talk through your current situation and you can ask any questions you may have about Art Psychotherapy. It is a relaxed assessment session lasting around an hour.
