I have been a practicing art therapist since 2012, working in the voluntary sector and as a self-employed art therapist with both children and adults in individual work and group settings.
I have a background in fine art practice and community arts and have a strong belief in the power of art making practices for all.
I think that the way in which we make sense of ourselves relates to our experience of our early relationships, and our place within and experience of the social, cultural and political world. This means that my practice is informed by psycho-social psychodynamic thinking.
In art therapy, the process of making and looking at images brings the opportunity for the understanding and containing of experiences. This can lead to the possibility for change.
Following our initial meeting we will agree upon a contract, this will cover appointment times, number of sessions and fees. The opportunity to review and renew the contract is included in this.
I’m a registered member of HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and BAAT (British Association of Art Therapy)
