Support for depression, existential anxiety, abuse & trauma, addiction, sex & sexuality, developmental challenges, attachment and relationship challenges - for children, youth, adults, LGBTQIA+, traditional & non-traditional partnerships / families.
Art Therapy is non-diagnostic, although I can co-create treatment plans and therapeutic approaches with those who have been given a diagnosis, to support their recovery in cooperation with mental-health or disability services. I have special interest in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) - based Art Therapy; as well as using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestault, Psychodynamic, Jungian and Mindfulness -based Art Therapies regularly. Personal feeling, thought, and behaviour, is inextricably linked to the wider social context. I think critically about the broader network of challenges affecting my clients, and seek to empower positive growth through this systemic lens.
