As an Art psychotherapist I recognise that there is many creative ways to explore and reach your therapeutic aims.
I work with whatever my clients bring into the therapy room and have a particular interest in personal identities and how my clients wish to be seen and accepted in the world. This includes identities around chronic illness and disability, as well as around gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. I do not work as a blank mirror but instead use my knowledge and training to create a dialogue between me and my clients.

Working in depth can involve dream work, sand tray, guided imagery, art and active imagination.
My qualifying training is as a humanistic integrative psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor. I have since undergone extensive post qualifying training, study and experience to enable me to work in a way which is Jungian Oriented. I have 35 years experience working with individuaIs, families and groups. After working in independent organisations as well as Health and Social care, I set up my own independent private therapy service and teaching centre. My hope has been to create a space where all individuals feel respected, accepted, supported and understood in order that to fully understand themselves and their place in the world.

I’m Izzy. I'm a queer, highly sensitive, Art Psychotherapist, Eco-Therapist and artist. My approach is nature-centered and invites you to you ‘feel into’ your body and environment; to go beyond the intellectual. That could look like deepening your relationship with the outdoors or embracing your animal, instinctual self. Or it could look like exploring plant-based and sustainable art materials. I'm currently opening slots for new clients to begin working with me in the new year. Or, you can join my workshops (see my website for details).

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
