How I Work

I work with the client to make sense of their experiences and their lives. We can work with different arts media if the client wants to. When I work with children and young people talking therapy is not always useful, so I work with the arts and play as a means of communication. Adolescents or adults who are stuck or cannot find words to describe their experiences have also found my approach useful. We can also work with writing, dreams, metaphor and mental imagery if that helps ~ what is important is finding what is right for you given what you have come into therapy or counselling to explore.

Main areas of work

Since 1999 I have provided integrative arts psychotherapy and counselling to adults, adolescents, children and groups. I am currently working with young people and adolescents for a charity.

I can work with a diverse range of issues, and have worked with people from all walks of life who are seeking to resolve something using counselling or therapy.

Clients are always welcome to arrange an initial telephone consultation session with me to see if working with me can be helpful to them or to their children. I am open to referrals from GPs, schools, CAMHS, or employers.

I offer group and one to one supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and education staff.
