Who We Are
Since qualifying in 1997, I have gained extensive experience working with adults and young people in both art therapy and counselling. This includes individual and group work with a broad range of clients in a variety of settings. My areas of practice have included generic counselling and psychotherapy, student counselling, learning disability, perinatal mental health, trauma and clinical supervision. I also work with childlessness and child bereavement. I currently work with NHS Forth Valley as an Art Therapist with people with learning disabilities and adult mental health. In addition I have delivered workshops and training events for a number of organisations including C.G Jung Seminars Scotland and have been a visiting lecturer for the MSc Art Psychotherapy (International) course at Queen Margaret University.
For me, the quality of the therapeutic relationship is central. Within this I am particularly interested in how image, metaphor and imagination work with somatic and neurobiological processes to help cultivate the resources needed to create positive change.
Please note, that currently my practice is full, and I am not taking new people at this time.
