Arts Therapist

A little more about Ginny:

Ginny graduated as an Arts Psychotherapist in 2000 from Goldsmiths University in London. She is highly experienced in working with children, young people and also adults.

Ginny uses many different therapeutic art and play techniques in her sessions and she has recently also started to include animal assisted interventions in some of her work, utilising skills learnt from her second degree in animal behavioural science and welfare.

Throughout her career Ginny has worked extensively with children and adults in rural communities and also inner-city environments in settings including, schools, hospitals, residential and outpatients clinics.

She has also been lucky enough to have worked with a wide mix of cultures and people of many different ethnic backgrounds during this time.

Ginny brings 20 years of experience to her work with Koru, helping children and young people who have experienced trauma, anxiety, self-harm, grief and loss, and a variety of mental health diagnosis. Her wide range of approaches can be adapted to suit each child’s specific needs, with the emphasis on creating a supportive therapeutic relationship that will help them through the difficulties that they may be experiencing at that time.
