As every child and young adult is unique, I can integrate aspects of art therapy, talk therapy, attachment theory, play, and the latest clinical thinking on self regulation and self resilience in times of stress.
Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, children & young people can develop fears or worries that may seem at odds with their peers. Often, they will try and manage the best they can, but developmentally this is a big ask. Working with a specialist in this field allows a child or young person to be supported from where they are today - in a way that makes specific sense to them. Sessions seek to help clients to start to process their emotional experiences which may be impacting their ability to thrive.

Psychosynthesis techniques range through art , guided visualisation, dreamwork, imagination, sub-personality work and much more, so that each individual in their own way, is offered an opportunity to re-evaluate their life and bring about change and personal growth, especially when faced with issues such as self-confidence, meaning, value and purpose in life.
My particular interest lies in guiding and encouraging people towards self-actualization and the integration of their fullest potential in whatever sphere of life they are engaged. This process may be seen as a journey, which we share together for at time and requires only ‘the willingness and the courage to be’. To participate joyfully in life is the goal at the heart of psychosynthesis therapy and coaching – and its achievement often comes in unexpected ways. We focus on developing your potential at all levels of being - body, feelings, mind and spirit - and on your deeper centre of identity as the source of true relationship.

Art therapy is a form of Psychotherapy that allows individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences through non-verbal communication. It is not used as a diagnostic tool but rather as a way to address and think about emotional and psychological difficulties that may be causing distress and confusion. We all need support at different stages of our lives and using creative methods can help to ease conversation and to develop better understanding.

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.

Many of my clients come to creative therapy when they have used more traditional approaches and felt it was not fully allowing them to express themselves or reach the depth of connection with their own feelings.
Do you need other ways of expression in therapy than sitting and talking - in order to make true sense of your experiences? How to tell the story of YOU when words are not enough? Or maybe you have always been sensitive to images, colour, music or anything that is outside the spoken world? I am a creative integrative counsellor providing a safe and non judgemental space for you to reach your inner experiences beyond expressing them verbally. You don't need any artistic or creative skills to benefit from this form of therapy - the resources are already in you - we will work together on activating the right side of the brain.

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.
