Welcome

My face

You may have found this site because you are seeking support with things you find difficult to talk about. This website will give you an overview of the services I can offer.

What I Can Offer
I support individuals to identify and embody distressing or confusing thoughts and feelings through the art-making process in order to make sense of the challenges they face. We may explore early-life experiences, trauma & significant life events, interpersonal & relationship challenges, your identity & self-concept – in relation to your hopes, desires and unique life situation. I utilise conscious and unconscious processes in a safe contained environment; empowering individuals to move forward with their lives with greater meaning and deeper understanding.

My Approach
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’, working reflexively utilising both directive and non-directive approaches. Through developing a secure therapeutic relationship clients can embody distressing thoughts and feelings, and begin to illuminate and identify unconscious processes through the art-making, looking together at symbols, archetypes and material-use in relation to their story.
