Hi, I'm Elle!
‘I am an HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist (MSc) and my philosophy is simple; transform how you feel by engaging body and mind, getting creative and sharing your story.’
In addition to being a fully registered Art Psychotherapist and trained supervisor, I am a classical Hatha yoga teacher and I have trauma informed training in embodied practices.
Perhaps you are struggling with:
Maybe you feel stuck, or uninspired, and are ready to work with an experienced art therapist to support you to feel better. You may wish to find a practitioner that can support you in engaging the nervous system in therapy to foster a felt sense of healing.
Sometimes dealing with the events that life can throw at us each day can take their toll on mental health. If you identify as an empath, or HSP (highly sensitive person), then daily sensory bombardment from life can be particularly stressful.
If any of these statements resonate with you then you are in the right place. I love to use creativity, movement and the senses to foster psychological and physical wellness.
With 9 years of experience in mental health, 15 years lived personal experience of the interventions I use to help others and additional training in the safe use of somatic and embodied practices within therapy I am skilled at working with clients to facilitate transformation.
My clinical Art Psychotherapy experience includes working one to one and with groups of children and adults in the NHS and education sector in Glasgow City Council, Edinburgh and North Ayrshire. I also provide supervision for other therapists and counsellors.
I work with groups, and individuals privately and in the corporate sector.

What about working with Elle surprised you the most?
"Probably how much she understood me, I’ve had a lot of experience where folk don’t get what I’m trying to say, Elle just listened and taken it all in. I’m surprised it actually worked for me. I was getting to the stage where I’d tried so many different things, it’s been years and feeling more and more hopeless so I decided I needed to put my all into this and it has worked and I’m feeling better."
