Aisling FeganArt therapy psychotherapist
Known as Ash, I’m an HCPC registered art psychotherapist. My practice is based in South London, but I also conduct therapy sessions online. I work with people of all ages who are facing a broad range of issues including trauma, bereavement, work-related stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, domestic violence, abuse, OCD, personality disorders, dementia and carer related stress.
What is art psychotherapy?
Art therapy, also known art psychotherapy is a type of psychological therapy (rather than an art class or hobby) that uses creative practices like drawing, painting, collage, and sculpting to provide an accessible way to communicate and contain thoughts and feelings that are too difficult to express with words alone - sometimes there simply are no words.
You don’t need any artistic ability to benefit from art psychotherapy, and there is no requirement to produce art in these sessions. Access Art Therapy sessions are suitable for people of all ages, and the content of your therapy, including any artwork created, is strictly confidential.
To learn more about the process or to think together about whether this type of therapy might be right for you, please message me through this page. More information about my art psychotherapy practice can be found here: accessarttherapy.co.uk
