I work with children and adults using Art therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), Interactive Drawing Technique (IDT) with a parts approach, talk therapy, somatic methods, mindfulness and sand tray. I find these modalities, within a supportive therapeutic relationship, help people who are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, attachment and relationship struggles and who need to recover from traumatic experiences.
I create a safe, compassionate and accepting therapeutic relationship with an attachment understanding and work from the belief that having authentic and meaningful relationships, including with yourself, is important for good mental health. I have a special fondness in supporting neurodiverse people and parents raising neurodiverse children.
I have been an art therapist for over 25 years. Using art as a way of working with difficulty can be very helpful for people who feel stuck or blocked and who need a concrete way of externalising their issues to help them to shift into a healthier place. It is not important or necessary for the client to have artistic skills.
