Ellie specializes in working with Art Therapy, Personality Disorders, and Trauma Therapy.

 

Ellie a qualified Integrative Arts Psychotherapist with a focus on integrative psychotherapy, a progressive form of therapy that draws upon many areas of psychology and can be easily tailored to individual clients. An integrative approach can be used to treat any number of psychological problems and disorders, including abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders.

 

Ellie has 6 years of experience in management and business before starting training in psychotherapy. In addition to this, she has worked for many years as a carer for brain and spinal injuries, life-threatening diseases, and children in care, and experience as a psychotherapist within the charity sector and the NHS working with clients through the ages of 17-75.

 

Ellie has completed a 4-year master’s degree in art psychotherapy; a professional method of treatment that may be used alongside the integrative approach. Art Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art mediums as its primary mode of expression and communication and is known to be a way of treating trauma and various emotional struggles. Sometimes words cannot express how we feel, especially when we are overwhelmed by strong emotions.

 

Ellie has worked with learning disabilities, sexual abuse, and domestic violence charities using these techniques. Many different forms of art are available, including Art, Drama/Puppetry, Sculpture/Clay, Poetry, Sand play, and Bodywork/Movement. Clients do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art. Most importantly it is to note, that art therapy practice has evolved to reflect the cultural and social diversity of the people who engage in it. 

 

Ellie's approach to psychotherapy is very person-centered; it’s about you and your needs. The advantage of this therapy is that it is broad-based, which means she can draw upon many different skill sets to help you.

 

Ellie is also working with Hand2Health offering mental health support to private and public sector organizations using the 3 pillars of software, consultancy, and residential.
