Personal Approach

I use a psychodynamic, non-directive, approach with strong emphasis on object relations and attachment theory. The therapeutic relationship is the core of the work for me as an art psychotherapist, and I follow my client and their needs. I will meet with parent and child separately as well as together.

I will invite the child to explore their difficulties at their own pace, whether verbally or through the art medium, in a nonjudgmental arena. The different parts of the psychological self will come to the surface through the art making process, the therapeutic relationship and the engagement with the space.

I will offer links to help the client piece together the different parts of self, which are being revealed, to form the full and dynamic image of self with a potential for its different parts to communicate and relate.
