Hello, I am a trained Integrative Arts Psychotherapist. This means that as well as talking in depth about issues, clients are able to use hands on, creative methods to explore experiences, thoughts and feelings. An arts-based approach offers benefits ranging from emotional release, self expression, and drawing on left brain capacities to see new perspectives and make links to personal meanings.
You don't need to have any prior art experience to do art therapy: the focus is working with simple creativity - such as doodles and mark making . I have a private practice in South London and work in hospitals, organisations and charities. I am also a Creative Supervisor working with individuals and groups.
