Blending psychotherapy with creative expression and exploration to develop personal growth, wellbeing, insight and healing.
Hello, I am Kirsty, a professional, qualified transpersonal Arts Therapist (among other things!). I offer a safe, empathetic space in which clients can express and explore what's happening in their inner and outer worlds. I journey with you as you navigate life's path.

Arts Therapy combines psychotherapy with creative mediums and directives - a session may include art mediums, writing, movement or sound. Art Therapy aids clients to externalise their inner world, to have their story witnessed, and to find insight and possibly new trajectory through arts exploration and processing.
Working with client goals, I devise directives and choose mediums to allow for expression and processing. Artistic 'skill' is not required to engage in Art Therapy. The emphasis is generally placed on creative process and expression rather than the final product:

What an incredible experience.
I felt welcome, safe, and extremely comfortable about taking the journey I did with Kirsty. The environment was prepared, well thought out and nurturing.
Art therapy is a fantastic way to navigate through what life can throw at us. I have managed to gain some important insight and release what was unwanted.
To have such an amazing therapist like Kirsty is only a blessing. Thank you for all your support, complete acceptance and professionalism.
