Katherine Heritage, MA
I am a qualified Art Psychotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a full member of the British Association of Art Therapists.
I have a calm, gentle and reflective style; ensuring that all those who I work with feel noticed and heard. Through this approach you are able to safely explore thoughts and feelings using the art materials. Together we can make links between your art, experiences and thoughts.
I work within a psychodynamic framework exploring emotions, thoughts and behaviours and how these are linked to our past experiences and relationships. My practice places emphasis on attachment styles and the impact of these across the entirety of our lifespan.
I place particular importance on supporting people who find themselves marginalised by society, whether through age, mental health, disability, ethnicity, identity or socio-economic status. I am passionate about equality and seek at all times to ensure that my practice challenges oppression and lifts the voices of those who are marginalised.
I’m currently very interested in neurological difference, for example supporting those with dementia. I have a particular interest in our developing understanding of how the brain changes for people with this diagnosis and how art therapy can have a positive impact on this process.
Areas of special interest
– Dementia and other neurological conditions.
