The creative process of art is both healing and life-enhancing and art psychotherapy, also known as art therapy, is based on this principle.
You don't need to be 'good at' or even interested in art to find art therapy beneficial. We embark on a journey together where I encourage and nurture your creativity. Through the process of making art and your finished artworks you can find meaning and insights into your difficulties and distress. To assist with this I provide a safe and confidential setting without pressure or judgement.
I can do brief art therapy, focusing on one difficulty, or longer term art therapy for more complex problems which need deeper understanding.
I am a qualified Art Psychotherapist with a masters degree and I also have a first degree in art. I have experience working in health, education and social care with adults, young people and children.British Association of Art Therapists - http://www.baat.org.uk
