I am an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist trained at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. I work from a therapy room in my garden in Mortimer (off A33, nr junctions 11 & 12, near Reading and Basingstoke). Currently all sessions are online during to COVID. It is still possible to use the arts and EMDR online.
The use of varied art materials in psychotherapy allows for expression and exploration of feelings and issues that may be difficult to put into words. It is not necessary that a piece of art is created but only that you, as a client, bring a willingness to use the arts to explore yourself and your concerns.
I also provide EMDR which is an effective therapy, often offered in longer 1.5 hour sessions. This is a recognised and effective treatment for PTSD and trauma and can be integrated with the use of art materials.
These two modalities integrate well or can be used independently.
Areas of interest
I have experience working with impact of early traumas and relational traumas; single incident traumas (like a car accident); depression; anxiety; loss of meaning in life; Mental Health Concerns; living with a medical condition or rare disorder; appearance concerns; impact of repeated medical interventions; reconnecting with creativity.
