Mandy Wood

Creative Arts Therapist

I am an enthusiastic and caring Creative Arts Therapist and expressive arts counsellor. I’m passionate about enhancing personal wellbeing, enabling inner transformation, and the deepening of faith, hope and resilience.

In my practice I am person-centered, and aim to come alongside others to support their exploration of themes and experiences in their lives. I allow this process to unfold in a gentle and non-judgemental way.

I use a variety of easy, creative art forms to accompany the conversation, such as simple drawing, collage, writing, postcard images, found objects, sand-tray, play, symbols and movement.

No artistic skill is required from participants; the activities will gently support self-expression, reveal new perspectives and help make sense of lived experiences.
