As an art therapist, Jen offers an alternative means of expressing complex or painful experiences that may otherwise be difficult to convey in words alone. Therapy is a dedicated and protected time in your week to think about your emotional needs and is a safe place to work through whatever you may wish you explore. Jen works with both adults and children to support issues that may include:
- Loss, bereavement and separation
- Depression and low mood
- Body image
- Relationship issues or family conflict
- Confidence and self-esteem
Jen works at your pace to help you make sense of the issues you choose to bring to sessions. There is a range of art materials for you to use but you may also just choose to talk. It does not require any skills in art at all as the emphasis is on the process and the meaning that is attributed to the artwork.
She has experience in providing art therapy services in acute adult mental health, as well as several years’ honed experience managing school-based therapy services for children and families.
