Welcome. I hope this page helps you discover more about my art therapy practice and how you, or someone you know, may benefit from art therapy.
Common issues addressed using art therapy include:
Self esteem, self confidence
During my work as an art therapist for 24 years, I have been privileged to work with children, adolescents and adults in individual and group settings, both in the USA and UK. These settings include work I have done with young people in mainstream and special schools. Adult clients have come from inpatient and outpatient substance abuse programmes, prison and probation service, learning disabled (residential and day services), multiple sclerosis support group, inpatient psychiatric hospital, and women’s transitional housing. I have also worked with life coaches delivering professional training and workshops.
What is art therapy?
In an art therapy session I facilitate a safe, confidential place where a person can express, understand, and work through whatever may be on their mind using art materials.
What art therapy is NOT:
It is NOT about learning art techniques
It is NOT about the art therapist making interpretations
It is NOT about making ‘pretty’ pictures
How art therapy works:
People may have strong thoughts and feelings that they find difficult to discuss. Unexplored, these may manifest themselves in a range of moods or behaviours that they may find distressing and that do not allow a person to reach their full potential. For many people art therapy enables them to convey their feelings and better understand themselves. The process of creatively expressing unspoken thoughts and feelings and the resulting images can be a powerful method of communication. There is no need to be ‘good at art’ to explore thoughts and feelings through art therapy.
