ALL ABOUT ART THERAPY
** UPDATE SINCE COVID-19
I understand that this is a really tough time for us all. With this in mind, I can offer Telephone or Online (skype) psychotherapy sessions. Please contact me for more details. Wishing you all well. **
We all experience difficulties from time to time and there is no shame in reaching out for help. Sometimes, these difficulties can take over your life and you feel there is nowhere to turn to for help. I provide professional and confidential Art Psychotherapy sessions to help you explore these difficulties and to help you feel that you are not alone with them.
Art Psychotherapy provides a safe space to communicate and think about your inner feelings in a non-verbal or verbal way. Art Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy which involves art making and conversation. I am very much client led so if you wish to just talk all session then this is absolutely fine. Equally, if there are some sessions where you wish to create art with very little talking, then this is fine too. The sessions are for you and therefore I adapt to how you need them to be in order to move forward positively in your life.
You don't have to be good at or skilled at art; I am fully trained to help you to express yourself in your own personal way. Art Psychotherapy can help with mental health difficulties such as anxiety, trauma, body image, bereavement or mental health disorders.
I offer Art Therapy to adults, older adults, young children and teenagers. I offer 1:1 sessions at Magnolia - Centre for Health and Wellbeing, Neath and I also visit schools and other organisations, to provide 1:1 and group Art Therapy sessions.
My aim is to help my clients to regain their self-esteem, confidence, trust and independence. I will never impose judgement and I am committed to helping you understand your art for yourself. I am fully trained to help you use the creative process as an opportunity to grow or make changes.
Through the use of Art Psychotherapy methods, my clients can discover and explore their own ideas and choices for a happier and healthier future.
ART THERAPY FOR ADULTS
I have worked with adults struggling with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, grief, poor attachments, poor physical health, relationship difficulties, psychosis and trauma. I understand how hard it can be to ask for help but I truly believe that Art Therapy can make a difference to your wellbeing.
ART THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
I have a wealth of experience of working with children, having worked with babies to teenagers and young people since 1999 either as a childcare provider, a teacher for 12 years and now a psychotherapist. I fully understand the complexities of child development and the importance of listening to each child as an individual. You are warmly welcome to contact me for further advice.
ART THERAPY IN SCHOOLS
I have many years of experience working with children and young people of all ages. I can provide Art Therapy at your school for individual or small group sessions to improve the wellbeing of your pupils.
