I am a state registered Art Psychotherapist who is based in Sheffield.
With over a decade of experience as an art psychotherapist I have significant experience working with long-standing emotional difficulties that have stem from loss, abuse and trauma – across cultural, faith and gender differences.
I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you will feel safe to be creative and speak honestly; where difficult feelings, thoughts and experiences can be given room to be shared, felt and understood.
Clients find me approachable, non-judgemental and down to earth. I approach all my work with an open mind and see therapy as a place for shared learning.
I offer a non-directive and human approach to my therapeutic encounters, and have an interest in untying the stigma that is commonly attached to difficult emotional experiences while understanding the sometimes destructive strategies that we develop for coping with distress.
My approach is informed by psychotherapy, group analysis and art therapy for social action ; and I am interested in understanding how the political, social and personal experiences affect one’s relationship with the present.
In response to COVID19, therapy will be online only until the new year.
