Why creative therapy?

All therapy is in a sense creative. It is re-writing past experiences, it is painting a new picture of onself, it is trying on new personas and exploring who we are in relation to one-another, it is about using our own instincts to guide us closer to our own truth and to find that settled feeling of stillness and flow. 

We all know deeply who we are and what we need. If only we took the time to truly listen.



Led a school counselling service since 2015
Worked in small private practice since 2015
Led Therapeutic Arts groups since 2009

I have worked with children, teenagers and adults, parents and families. I have worked with people who HATE thearpy, people who are skeptical of it and people who've had lots of it. 
I have a wealth of experience and the utmost respect for my clients. The aim of my work is to give the client tools, techniques and a deeper self-awareness to feel more resilient and robust. 




As an accredited Member of the BACP I adhere to their code of ethics. 

Through the work we do I aim to help clients

1) Nurture a deep respect for self and others 

2) Invoke kindness and compassion (for self and others)

3) Learn to listen to, hear and trust the body's messages

4) Feel more connected to self, the people and the world around us. 

5) Be able to witness moments of our own strength and resilience in challenging situations 

6) Feel more connected to their own strength, and trusting their own inner radar.
