WIDE SPECTRUM OF NEEDS

ADULTS & CHILDREN

COMPLETE TRUST & ACCEPTANCE

INDIVIDUAL OR GROUPS

I offer one to one sessions on an individual basis where the adult/child is given a safe place to work through their problems. This is their time to use as they want to. This allows healing to occur on many levels. I also offer group therapy for children.

The adult/child and therapist enter into a trusting relationship which allows the adult/child to express him/herself freely with complete permissibility and acceptance.

Creative therapy provides an environment where adults/children can develop problem solving skills, resiliency and be able to express their emotions in a safe place where they will have no judgement or expectations placed upon them.

A qualified Creative therapist, uses an understanding of cognitive development and the different stages of emotional development as well as the conflicts common to these stages when treating the client . Their work can be directive or non directive.
