I'm an experienced occupational therapist, natural practitioner and artist, offering art lessons at my studio in Suffolk. If you have lost confidence, art can be a powerful creative activity that helps to restore self esteem.
Absorption into the creative process through use art can help reduce stress. Focus is on the individuals journey and helps with processes such as confidence building and decision making, which has a massive impact on people’s everyday life. It is suitable for all ages and is also a very good way of being involved with others to reduce loneliness and isolation.
For many people there are not always the right words to express feelings and art can be used to communicate deeper emotions and gain understanding of oneself, this can be very beneficial for teenagers.
Previous experience in art is not necessary, anyone can create art work that is as unique as themselves. It is my role as an artist to help guide you, teaching you new skills, using often unfamiliar materials and tools, this can be a life changing process for many.
