Eloise Raab

 I am a fully qualified Art Psychotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). I am of dual nationality and work fluently in English, French and Spanish.

My art psychotherapy training was psychodynamic, an approach that is mostly non-directive with a holistic focus on the perspective of my client. The fundamentals of my practice involve tailoring my approach to your needs; creating a space where you feel safe, respected and supported and where we can explore difficult topics together at your own pace. I am here to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and the reasons that may have led you to therapy.

The art materials are proposed as a tool to facilitate self expression and understanding; they form part of the communication, particularly when feelings and experiences have no words.

The art you create is seen purely as a form of expression and never in terms of artistic skill. Whilst art making is often used as part of my therapeutic approach, it is by no means compulsory. There is absolutely no pressure to express yourself in this way if you feel more comfortable talking.

I have experience working in a variety of settings, facilitating both group and individual sessions with children, adolescents, adults and families. These include primary and secondary schools, eating disorder clinics, refugee centres, community centres and hospices. I have particular experience in working cross culturally and with young adults. Other areas of experience involve working with anxiety, depression, self harm, panic attacks, low self esteem and feelings of low self worth, eating disorders, loss, miscarriage and fertility difficulties.

I offer an initial meeting session free of charge and am available Wednesdays between 8am and 2pm at The Sunflower Centre. Please contact me at eloisearttherapy@gmail.com for more information.
