I am a qualified Advanced Drawing and Talking practitioner running my own company Beam Wellbeing.
Drawing & Talking is a CAMHS recommended and recognised Tier 1 early intervention for children and young adults showing signs of mental ill health. It is a gentle, child-led intervention that takes place over 12 consecutive weeks for half an hour a week. During this time children are invited to draw and then talk using story-telling and fantasy language about their pictures. This helps to reframe past experiences and trauma and to overcome difficult emotions to become more resilient.
It is suitable for children aged 6 years+ who may show signs of anxiety, stress, depression, OCD, perfectionism, low self-esteem. It is also suitable for children who have suffered trauma or emotion pain due to family troubles, bereavement, separation or divorce or children who are dealing with tough transitions.
I work in the Reading area, based in Caversham and have a practise space in Caversham centre.
I am fully insured and DBS checked.
