Art Psychotherapy uses a mixture of talking and art-making in the sessions.
People start therapy for many different reasons. You may feel dissatisfied, worried or sad, want to explore the past, process difficult events, or achieve goals. By also using art-making, it is possible to explore emotional issues in a different, sometimes deeper way, one that words alone may not allow. You do not need to be an artist to benefit from this, just drawn to the idea of expressing yourself creatively. I have experience of helping with a range of issues, from common life problems, through depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, and experiences of unstable mood.

Whether you are coming to therapy for the first time or seeking a new way of looking at things, your reason for coming to therapy is unique to you. I work collaboratively with you to discover meaning of current distress or patterns of behaviour which you may be finding difficult, through its association with past relationships and experiences. My goal is to help you feel like a more confident, authentic version of yourself who will be better equipped to deal with difficult feelings in the future.

I work creatively, sometimes with play, art, and imagination.
Hello and welcome! I am a qualified and fully accredited psychotherapist, working from offices in Central London (near Bond Street tube) and WimbIedon. I work with clients facing a range of difficult issues in their lives. This is usually long-term work, but can also be short-term depending on needs. For me, the journey of psychotherapy is about deeper self-knowledge so that you gain the confidence to reveal more of your authentic self in the outside world. It is a fascinating (though at times painful) journey to find your feelings, voice, strength and qualities.

After completion of my MA in Transpersonal /Integrative Child, Adolescents and Family Therapy in 2018, I now also take on children and adolescents, using play and art therapy as well as sand tray therapy to help to resolve trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and self harm.
My main approach is to encourage you to explore your feelings and take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. As I work in a way that empowers the client, I always work with what you present. Bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief, jealousy, sadness, shame and pain can become very overwhelming.The opportunity to express them can make it much easier to understand yourself and others. As I acknowledge your feelings and respect you as a person in your own right, you gain self-respect and a sense of being valued. This leads to building trust between counsellor and client, which is an essential part of the process.

Who said only children can use art to freely express and be playful? ".
Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Stress, anxiety, shame, guilt, feeling overwhelmed and depressed seem to be part of the vocabulary we use to express our frustrations today more than ever. Accumulation of working demands, changes, rejections in combination with private life stressors can through us off balance. Being, however, proactive in nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis.

I see my role as providing a space where my clients can re-connect with parts of themselves that have been forgotten. If not attended to, this 'wild' self can be overcome by growing layers of fear, hurt, anger and a longing for what we did not have. This can manifest as depression, a lack of meaning or deep feelings of unworthiness. Therapy can help to untangle and make sense of the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that might be blocking a path to a renewed sense of spontaneity and adventure.

Creative Therapy Counsellors
It may look like a craft class, but creative therapy in London is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. London creative therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centres, creative therapy programmes are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled London creative therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
