I am an Art Psychotherapist (MA, BA, NVQ3) working in private practice, in institutional settings and on outdoor therapeutic programmes. I work in English, Spanish and Swedish.
I spent several years working in London for Turning Point, which serves the UK National Health Service. I encountered a wide range of clients, from children with behavioural difficulties, to homeless people with mental health issues. I currently work in both Spain and Scotland.
In my private practice I currently see child, adolescent and adult clients. My approach is grounded in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theory, adopting broadly humanistic and mentalisation-based techniques.
In Barcelona, I work in international schools, such as, the British School of Barcelona. I value working closely with the children, young people and their families to offer multi-systems thinking. This includes working closely with interdisciplinary teams of teachers, inclusion staff, psychologists and other psychotherapists.
I am active in secure settings, such as prisons and young offender institutions, on a voluntary basis. I currently co-facilitate a father´s group for inmates at Brians’ Prison outside of Barcelona.
Part of my therapeutic activity is based in the outdoors. I work as the senior therapist on Venture Mor’s Wilderness Therapy Programmes for “hard to reach” young people on the West Coast of Scotland. I am an outdoor therapist on Venture Trust’s Next Steps Personal Development Programmes, for female ex-offenders who have experienced gender violence.
I am open to explore working with clients in natural spaces in Barcelona, in a walk-and-talk capacity. My training with Hayley Marshall and Anat Rafael strongly informs my outdoor practice and I feel there can be real value in taking therapy into these other-than-human spaces.
