Please read more below about Individual art therapy and what this might entail for children, adolescents and adults and contact me by email or via the button below to discuss your requirements.
Art therapy can be a powerful way for adults to work through challenging emotions without needing to 'know' what to say. It has its way of accessing a felt sense experience that can have long lasting positive effects.
We begin with where you are comfortable, for some this may be talking to begin with then moving into art making as and when you would like to. I will support you to experience yourself as capable and creative. You will have opportunity to use a wide variety of media for self expression, such as: clay work, drawing, felting, sandtray, collage, guided drawing, breathwork, guided meditation, nature based art therapy.
You may have goals in mind, or may bring only feelings that you are ready to give voice to through image or form.
CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS
Art therapy acknowledges that verbal language is only one way of communicating and this isn't always the easiest way for children and adolescents to work through their troubles. Through the use of play and creativity, art therapy provides both a safe space to express themselves, share thoughts and process emotions, and to practice their true resourcefulness.
I am passionate about designing a therapy that suits your child or young person, supporting them to feel strong in themselves and proud of their voice and their unique way of being.
My way of working incorporates:
Story telling (narrative approaches, books, life story work)
