ABOUT

Jessica Calnan - Art psychotherapist

I have always been interested in empowering others and supporting them in sparking change in their lives. I am a qualified art psychotherapist and my practice had taken many exciting avenues.

My work is about supporting you in rediscovering yourself, unlocking your true potential and connecting with your creativity. Through working together my aim is to help you to recognise patterns and habits in your life that may be keeping you stuck, finding ways to safely express and connect with your emotions, and support you in becoming empowered and inspired.

Outside of my private practice I have years of experience working as an art psychotherapist in a variety of hospital and mental health settings. I have a particular interest in working with those who experience psychosis and providing family and carer support.

Alongside this, I also run workshops for staff teams working in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and inpatient settings. The workshops integrate art psychotherapy approaches within a psycho-educational framework to support team members to reflect creatively on the experience and impact of working with clients with complex needs and presentations.

I have availability to work with individuals and teams for clinical supervision, team away days and reflective practice.
