WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE ART PSYCHOTHERAPY PROCESS...

Art Psychotherapy

with Lucy Shearman

What is Art Psychotherapy?

Art Psychotherapy uses art media as its primary mode of expression. Often it can be challenging to translate our thoughts and feelings into words. Language can also be stigmatised and difficult to use around mental health. Art is great at breaking through these barriers that we develop and allow us to reflect and express ourselves in a rich and authentic way.


I follow a psychodynamic framework which focuses on looking at how past experiences and relationships can influence the way you handle situations and relationships in your current day to day life.
 

About me

I have extensive experience with individuals with acute psychiatric mental health issues, eating disorder, hospice/ bereavement, addiction and recovery programmes. I have worked with individuals with a wide range of mental health issues and neurodiverse needs including depression, anxiety, psychosis, ASD, PTSD, attachment disorder, trauma, personality disorders and more.
 

I understand how difficult it can be to access psychotherapy and how vulnerable it can make you feel.  I think it is important to treat people and this process with respect, compassion and kindness. Allowing you to take responsibility for your own creative decisions means that as opposed to leading you down a path, I am rather stood beside you, keeping you safe and supporting you in your journey.

 

Is it for you?

Art Psychotherapy has been proven to be effective across many different client groups and ages. No art experience is needed. All clients will receive an initial assessment, this space is for you to talk a little about what has brought you to therapy, the process and whether it is something you would like to do. Please feel free to use the contact form at the end of this page and I will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
