I am a fully qualified Art Psychotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).
I have experience working clinically with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of mental health difficulties. I have worked in a variety of settings including: inpatient and outpatient clinics, children and adolescent mental health (CAMHS), primary and secondary schools, women’s aids, community events and museums and galleries.
I currently work in an NHS early intervention and prevention service, running an art therapy clinic as well as offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) within schools and other educational environments. I also work for charity that offers free therapeutic support to young people in South London. I am also a Visiting Lecturer at the MA in Art Psychotherapy at University of Roehampton in London.
My practice involves offering mental health assessments as well as individual and group treatment to children and young people referred to the service. My clinical role also involves delivering training and offering consultation to staff, parents and other professionals working within school environments.
My private practice includes individual and group work with young people as well as adults, families and arts therapies trainees. I also deliver corporate workshops and run art and wellbeing events in the community.
My training was based on a psychodynamic approach informed by Jungian analytic psychology. I work flexibly, using a person-centered and integrative approach, drawing inspiration from different perspectives, focused on a strong therapeutic relationship and the development of self-awareness through the creative use of art.
I am also a qualified Museum Practitioner and I have delivered arts and health projects in cultural, educational and health settings in the UK and abroad for over 10 years.
My practice is fully insured and professionally supervised in accordance with HCPC guidelines, and I abide by the HCPC and BAAT code of ethics.
