Art Therapy is available for both children and adults. It is a form of psychotherapy that is known to be a gentle way of treating trauma and various emotional struggles. We sometimes find that words cannot express how we feel, especially when we are overwhelmed by strong emotions. Since Art Therapy does not need to solely rely on spoken language, it can access often inaccessible places, so that you can process your thoughts and feelings in a different way. Children who do not have the vocabulary to talk about difficult things can greatly benefit from Art Therapy as well. Only HCPC registered Art Therapists can practise Art Therapy.

In Art Therapy, you do not have to be good at art. Art materials allow you to have control, and it can let you externalise your difficult feelings without having to reveal everything; once they are ‘out there’, you can take time to explore them slowly. I will respect your privacy and guide you through this process. For more details, please visit my website.

I gained my MA working in Forensic Mental Health, I have since been treating children/adolescents who experienced sexual violence and abuse. I believe everyone is different, therefore exploring each person’s world and learning how they think is key to the effective treatment. So getting to know you will be the first part of my work with you.
