I welcome an opportunity to talk through any concerns or questions that you might have. This will help you get an idea of me and help you think about whether you would like to have an initial session. Getting the right fit is important for you, I do this by a no-charge phone consultation before any initial meeting is arranged.
I have 27 years of experience of running groups, first in adult and young people’s education and then as a Community Artist. Since 2005 I have worked with art psychotherapy groups in community mental health.
Groups can offer the potential to look at yourself in relationship with others in an immediate way. People often begin to connect more deeply and meaningfully with themselves and each other.
Some initial, gentle guidance will be offered to help the group bond and feel safe. My approach is non-directive, however individuals may wish to work with personal themes. These can become more focused and they often evolve and suggest other directions to go in.
Please call to express your interest in joining a group.
I offer presentations on art therapy to outside agencies and I am also available to host one-off workshops or short term groups that may run over a few weeks or months. Please contact me to explore further.
