I'm an Art Therapist with extensive experience of working in mental health services. My specialty is working with children, teens and families; parents worried or concerned about their child. Have you ever known a child who has struggled with worries, concerns, sadness or anger? Their first response to stressful experiences is usually to act on their feelings. They may not be able to put into words what is troubling them or even why. In Art Therapy we focus on experiences and feelings, expressed through art making within a consistent therapeutic relationship, with the aim of making sense of it together. Art Therapy can have a positive impact, not only on the young person, but on their families, friendships and educational attainment while also alleviating and enabling better management of emotional mental health.

with those on the autistic spectrum or with subtle neuro-developmental difficulties.

I am also a Clinical Supervisor and offer supervision to trainees in the field of counselling and psychodynamic therapies.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I treat every person as an individual and tailor the required support to their specific needs. I pride myself on working collaboratively with families and request parental involvement when setting up and reviewing the work with children and young people.

I work in a comfortable and private setting with easy access in Tring, Hertfordshire.

During art therapy sessions you may feel your self esteem increasing, feelings of anxiety and depression can reduce whilst relationships with friends, family and colleagues can become less problematic. You may find that you gain focus and clarity of thought. Gaining a different perspective can leave you feeling calmer and more grounded.
