Health Care Professions Council Registered Art Psychotherapist Certified Trauma Therapist
I am an Art Therapist and Certified Trauma Therapist. I have a background in Social Work especially all aspects of adoption and in biodynamic gardening.
My art therapy experience has been with a broad cultural diversity of people in psychiatric, secure and forensic environments, with people who are living with terminal or life long, life-threatening conditions; with traumatised and marginalised people whose lives have been overshadowed by abuse, multiple trauma and/or life crisis.
I facilitate courses on Working with Trauma, Professional Resilience and Burnout and on Working with Grief and I am a professional supervisor.
Art therapy is an active therapy; it offers the opportunity to literally work through things that trouble us using clay, colours, black and white and multimedia. Sometimes we don’t know what is wrong we just know we don’t feel at home in the world or within our skin. Art therapy makes visible what often cannot be expressed in words. It can also be helpful if we find we talk a lot but go round in circles. The activity quietens and clarifies and is a bridge between what is conscious and unconscious and gives us a mirror for self-reflection.
You may be suffering from loss of direction, loss of the sense of self through life events, loss of faculties through illness, loss of connection to others or you may feel you need to be replenished. You don’t have to be good at art to engage in art therapy. The only thing you need is to be willing to experiment and together we can do the rest.
My job is to help you to find the healer within you and to help you to integrate whatever has happened or is happening so that you can continue your life believing that no matter what: your life matters.
I offer time limited therapy reviewed on agreed time scales, one to one sessions, small group sessions, psycho-education and themed workshops.
An introductory session is offered so that we can discuss your needs and see if we would like to work together. For this session I ask for a small contribution to cover the hire of the room. I will be working at the centre on Wednesday afternoons and evenings. Please contact me if you have any questions.
