I have worked as an art psychotherapist facilitating groups within women’s refuge and homeless hostel settings. My approach is to offer a safe, contained and confidential space where it is possible to explore thoughts and feelings through the art materials within the art therapy space.
My art therapy training was psychodynamic and I combine this with a person centred and non-directive way of working. I am interested in attachment, memory and loss and how the art making process can support making sense of what has happened. In the right circumstances the art therapy process can recalibrate perceptions of the past, present and future which in turn can lead to transformation and well-being.
I am qualified as an Art Psychotherapist and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).
