WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO TAKE AND HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST FOR?

Contact me for a free informal chat to discuss your requirements and to arrange an assessment session.
During an initial art psychotherapy consultation we can think together about what it is you are seeking from this kind of psychotherapy. You will be invited to use art materials with a focus on the process, your image and how to best support you.
Individual sessions are 50 minutes.
Group sessions are 90 minutes, plus time to set up and clear up the room.
Birth consultations are 90 minutes.

HOW MUCH OF THE WORK DO I HAVE TO DO?

Art psychotherapy requires an active participation. The therapeutic relationship provides the space to facilitate change.

DO YOU USE FREUDIAN OR JUNGIAN ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES?

Art psychotherapy has its roots in a visual arts practice, and so combines this with a primarily psychoanalytic, psychodynamic model. I also include other approaches such as mentalisation-based treatment.

ARE THE SESSIONS CONFIDENTIAL?

Yes. I am registered with BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists) and follow their ethical guidelines. I am registered with HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council) who monitor and regulate the caring professions such as art psychotherapy. I am also a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

HOW LONG SHOULD I CONTINUE WITH ART PSYCHOTHERAPY?

This really depends on your unique circumstances and needs. An open-ended approach in which there is space for your to explore new issues that may arise once the therapy has started may be the most helpful.
