I enjoy giving people an opportunity to connect to them selves through creativity, play and therapeutic interaction.

  • Highly skilled and experienced art psychotherapist working with adults and children for over eight years, with over fifteen years experience working in the health care sector.
  • Delivering meaningful and challenging work and love every moment of it.
  • Expert in making a positive difference to people’s lives from young to old.
  • Experienced art therapist, facilitator, creative go-getter, workshop provider and promoter of art

I provide individual and groups art therapy sessions,  in the community of East and West Sussex.

I have a BA in Fine and MA in Art Psychotherapy, and am a approved  British Association Art Therapists  private practitioner .

I have eight years post graduation experience as an art psychotherapist, and over ten years experience in neurological rehabilitation in the NHS.  I am registered with the Health Care Professionals Council, and British Association of Art Psychotherapy.

As a multidisciplinary artist and art therapist I feel many forms of creativity can be powerful tools of self-exploration. Art is a creative tool of self-expression with the emphasis not being on the finished image or how realistic it looks, but on the experience of making it and what this represents to the individual.

I work psycho-dynamically, and always developing my approach to what works best on an individual or group basis.

If you’d like to know anything more about art therapy, guided relaxation or fatigue management or other groups I run please contact me for more information.
