I’m a dedicated Art Therapist and Teacher who specialises working with children, young people and families. For over 14 years, I have worked privately as well as for charities, community organisations and schools. My therapeutic approach is client led, it is non-directive, psychodynamic in nature and draws on attachment theory. I work alongside people with a wide range of emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, supporting and encouraging them to engage in the arts for their own emotional well-being and to express feelings and experiences
I have completed a BA in Fine Art and MA in Art Therapy and a PGCE in Education. I am Registered with The Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and a member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT)
About Art Therapy
Art Therapy is a technique that incorporates visual and tactile media to help people explore complex feelings, thoughts and experiences.
It is of universal benefit as both verbal and non-verbal communication styles are used in a non-threatening, nurturing and private therapeutic environment.
Art therapy can help individuals to:
Find an outlet for emotions and difficult experiences
Build self-esteem, confidence and self-awareness
Foster, heal and strengthen relationships
Promote self-understanding and compassion
Develop tools to support themselves going forward

Lou is wonderfully patient, creative and kind. Everything you could wish for in a teacher!
We are so grateful to Lou for helping our son. He really enjoys the art sessions. We have found Lou's suggestions to help him outside of the sessions so helpful.
The art workshops were a lot of fun, inspired by our beautiful surroundings encouraging the children to collect and use material around them. Not to be missed!
An extraordinary experience! Lou and her
team made me feel really comfortable making art in a group. It was such a special art retreat.
