Personal Statement

Jake Whitbread MA
Art Therapist

I gained a Masters in Art Psychotherapy from the Northern Program at Leeds Becket University.
I am an Art Psychotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).  I am also a Reiki practitioner and Psychologist.


​I have experience as an Art Therapist in Norfolk and Suffolk Waveney Mental Health working in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) in Lowestoft and Northgate Hospital in Great Yarmouth engaging with a diverse group of people with complex needs. 

Having spent many years working in front line positions throughout economically deprived areas I have become acutely aware of how an individuals wellbeing can be effected by their external world. It has been of the utmost importance in every area of work to build a varied and adaptive work ethos to be able to connect with individuals in a proactive way. Thus, balancing their wellbeing by helping the individual to help themselves through self reflection, and empowerment.


I am currently setting up my own private practice with the importance of Art Therapy being available to all, so I operate a sliding scale of fees according to ability to pay.
