Mary is back.
This time she joins me for an exclusive video interview as part of Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
Mary is pretty incredible and inspiring. And this is precisely why I invited her back.
Mary emanates a level of self-awareness, presence and authenticity that I hope I am able to share with my clients.
The ability to integrate this depth of awareness with a knowledge of trauma, and in Mary’s case, with creativity, as well, is powerful.
Mary is an HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist in the UK, with a degree in Creative Expressive Therapies and a Masters in Art Therapy. She is a feminist, human, artist and activist and currently works in schools with adolescents who are often referred to as hard to reach young people with challenging behavior.
In reality, Mary works with young people who have often experienced trauma, various or multiple types of abuse and come from (emotionally, economically and socially) deprived backgrounds.
Mary also has a special interest in working with older people living with Dementia and has created multiple bodies of work exploring the internal, imagined worlds of people living with this diagnosis. As a practicing artist and art therapist, Mary uses the art making process to inform her own personal/self development and the growth and nurturing of her clients in her practice.
