BA (Hons), PGDip, PGCert, BAAT

HCPC registered Contact


I am chartered by the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My qualifications are:

  • BA (Hons) (2.1) University of Manchester
  • PG Dip (University Prize) University of Hertfordshire. Art Psychotherapy
  • PG Cert (Distinction) Tavistock and Portman. Applied Systemic Theory

I am an Art Psychotherapist with 20 years' experience. Most of this has been gained working in NHS mental health services, where I have worked with young people and adults experiencing a variety of difficulties. I also have experience of working in education and in private practice.

Over the years, I have had the privilege to learn a great deal from clients and colleagues. I have received training in a variety of therapeutic models and take an integrative approach.

My aim is to offer a safe, respectful and confidential environment within which each person can take time to explore and find a way of working that feels right for them.

My areas of special interest and experience include therapeutic process, long-term work and art-based approaches to assessment and formulation.

Main therapy models

  • Art Psychotherapy
  • Person Centred Counselling
