About Me

I am an HCPC registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist working with adults in private practice in Witney, Oxfordshire. I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy and PG Dip in the Therapeutic Application of the Arts awarded by the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. 

Working within a framework that prioritises the therapeutic relationship my theoretical orientation is psychodynamic and humanistic, underpinned by neuroscience and attachment theories.

My integrative training in both talking and art therapy enables me to combine both approaches. Engaging with creative media as a form of communication allows space for unconscious feelings, which once expressed and given visible form become available for reflection and for new perspectives to form through dialogue.  

I spent 20 years as a partner in a small consultancy practice and became a professional food photographer in 2005. More recently I have worked within the NHS in acute mental health settings facilitating groups and working one to one. Currently, in addition to developing my private practice I continue to work as an Independent Advocate with vulnerable adults.

'Art therapist' and 'Art Psychotherapist' are protected titles regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). My registration number is AS15735. You can check my reg on line at www.checktheregister.org or www.hcpc-uk.org
