Hello, I am a qualified art therapist and joined the NIDAS team in November 2022. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am a member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). I am very passionate about supporting families that have been affected by domestic abuse and believe that art therapy can play a vital role in enabling families to make the journey towards recovery and empowering them to rebuild their lives after abuse. My approach to therapy is person centred, trauma sensitive, and psychodynamic. I offer one to one, group and dyadic art therapy to adults, young people, children and parent-child. I aim to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for my clients and encourage engagement in materials to enable self-expression, exploration, and reflection, whilst helping to facilitate positive changes in wellbeing.
