INTEGRATIVE ARTS PSYCHOTHERAPIST

I am a UKCP accredited Clinical Psychotherapist and HCPC registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist knowledgeable about human development, psychological theories, clinical practice, spiritual, multicultural and artistic traditions, and the healing potential of art and psychotherapy.



Psychotherapy which incorporates the arts can be beneficial in a wide range of cases, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues,  family issues, self esteem, coping with change and loss, mid-life challenges, addiction, trauma, grief, dissatisfaction, panic attacks, eating disorders, or other types of physical, mental or emotional challenges.




CONFIDENTIALITY AND SUPPORT

I offer a confidential, non-judgmental and safe space for you to reflect on your life and support your journey to meaning. Supporting your freedom to change and imagine, I provide you with an opportunity to become who you want to be.


CREATIVITY

Combining a range of psychotherapeutic theories with empathy and an understanding of the psychological aspects of the creative process, I will listen, accept, explore and work creatively with you, your feelings and beliefs.


INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

Working with words, metaphor, image and symbol, connecting mind and body, the work is moulded to meet the needs of the individual client.


IMPROVED AWARENESS AND CONFIDENCE

Art Psychotherapy improves wellbeing, awareness, self-confidence and coping skills; it increases cognitive function and can reduce anxiety and depression. You do not need artistic ability or experience and sometimes entire sessions can use words alone.


CONSCIOUS LIVING

Using the arts activates the imagination; it helps you to access your unconscious mind. The art can show you new possibilities and support your growth and healing, providing you with a chance to make conscious choices in your life.


EXPRESSION

When words are not enough, the arts help express many meanings at once. Art making can be soothing and satisfying, it can help you to get in touch with feelings and memories. From a neurological perspective, working beyond words, with the creative process activates far more of our mental capacity.



THE ARTS

 Arts media you may use include: Paints, pastels, charcoal, pencils, clay and sculpture, sandtray, collage, postcards, poetry, drama, puppets, working with dreams, bodywork/movement and music.
