The Art Therapy Nest is a nurturing space near Sevenoaks, Kent, which supports healing and wellbeing for everyone. Here I offer traditional psychotherapy and counselling, as well as creative arts and mindfulness-based approaches to individuals and groups. I also provide workshops to enrich mind, body and soul, allowing for our inherently creative selves to flourish.

Compassionate psychotherapy and counselling is a process of self-discovery and empowerment. It is suitable for everyone who seeks to understand the painful emotions, behavioural patterns and psychological difficulties that we can experience.

About Me

I am a qualified, accredited and registered psychotherapist, trained to work holistically, with or without creative materials.

I support adults and young people who feel weighed down by life experiences and painful emotions.  I also work with groups of people interested in personal development and wellbeing.

Together, we gather insights and awareness that can lead you to living a more creative, fulfilling life.
