I have been practicing Art Therapy for many of years working with children, adolescents, adults and elderly adults in various settings.
My specialist area is with children and adolescents working in are primary and secondary schools, pupil referral units as well as in private practice. I work with behavioural issues, profoundly deaf students, children with autism, bereavement and young people in Foster Care individually or in group settings.
Why Art Therapy?
Art Therapy is a gentle approach to expressing emotions using creativity. This can enable individuals to explore issues of concern in order to cultivate emotional resilience. Sometimes it can be hard to relate difficult feelings verbally, art therapy allows people a way of expressing themselves in a different way.
Having had cancer 24 years ago and going through a very messy divorce, I decided to revaluate my life and begin a new career in my late 40’s. I graduated BA honours Applied Art and MA Art Therapy. I was also raising three boys as a single mum.
I have since started up Art Therapy4all CIC which provides Art Therapy to the local community and addresses issues around mental health and wellbeing.
