Kath Wallace, Art Psychotherapist

portrait for DrS&A  Website

I am an art psychotherapist with many years experience working with young people and their families and have specialised in working in schools.

 It is a privilege to be able to work with young people using art materials while we explore together the difficult feelings and experiences that may be causing concern. The understanding gained through the art therapy sessions gives a unique insight into the needs of the particular child.

 

Art making provides a safe space in which difficult feelings can be shared and understood, and which promotes healing and the growth of confidence. 

I am also a qualified Thrive practitioner. Thrive includes art making and play with children and families, using Thrive assessments to inform the sessions. Further information about Thrive can be found at their website www.thriveapproach.com
