Arts Therapist in Newcastle

I am a state registered Art Therapist and work with a variety of people ranging from children with developmental trauma to adults with PTSD and older adults who suffer from dementia or stroke survivors. Art Therapy is used to help reduce emotional distress and suffering people maybe experiencing by using art as the main form of communication. Anyone can benefit from Art Therapy and you dont have to have any skills in art. Arts therapies have been found to alleviate anxiety, depression and stress while increasing resilience and wellbeing. I offer free consultation to answer any questions.

Background & Qualifications

There is a wide variety of evidence of the benefits of art therapy for children, also Arts Therapies help people to recover from brain injury and diminish the physical and emotional suffering of cancer patients and the side effects of their treatment.

My Specialisms

Art therapy can benefit anyone especially people who dont want to talk about their problems using talking therapies, either because a person doesn't understand their own difficulties or a person has difficulty speaking whether due to physical or learning difficulties. Contact me with any questions

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I am person centred, psychodynamic art therapist with a jungian approach. I ofeer free consultation where I can Understand fully your background and current issues. There is normally a 3 week assessment period to monitor if art therapy is the most appropriate therapy for your current needs and for you to find out if this is a helpful therapy. I work with the client to set goals and review the art therapy process at regular intervals to monitor progress. Client can use various art materials to explore their feelings and all work is kept confidentially and is property ofclient at the end of therapy. Art work is normally produced at each session and discussed. You do not have to be good at art and it is very different to an art class.
