As an artist I combine the concepts of contemporary art with creative action in society, creating art projects in collaboration with individuals, communities, companies & institutions. Art can bring people together and foster understanding of each other and the world. The artists view offers valuable insights for our lives, our development and our society.

As a therapist I provide a save environment to whole-bodily explore the realm beyond (yet) denoted and consciously fathomed life experiences. I am specialized in contemporary arts therapy working in, with and in-between multiple medias like: painting, drawing, collage, movement, dance and performance, installation and sculpture, video, photography and animation, music and singing, poetry and writing! Whatever suits my clients best.

I am focusing on work-, as well as family-based stress & burn-out, anxiety or depression, loss, bereavement and grief, working in long term as well as short term therapy with adults, young adults and children.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).
