What I Can Offer
I recognise that sometimes putting emotional difficulties into words can be extremely challenging; art therapy can provide expression and containment of powerful emotions such as fear, anger and grief. I support individuals to make sense of distressing or confusing thoughts and feelings through the art-making process. I create a spaces where these emotions can find form, working along side clients to explore the material that emerges through the process.
Through developing a secure therapeutic relationship, I support clients to explore early-life experiences, difficult life events, relationship challenges, and issues of identity – empowering individuals to move forward with their lives with greater meaning and deeper understanding. Sessions are always tailored to the unique needs and desires of the individual.
My clinical work is primarily psychodynamic, informed by attachment theory and mentalization-based therapy. I am experienced in working with a wide range of materials and techniques within my practice, including painting, clay-work, inks, oil and chalk pastels, the use of ‘found objects’, utilising both directive and non-directive approaches.
