Using an integrative and client centered approach, one that has a strong focus on building an empathic, respectful and collaborative therapeutic relationship, Veronica uses this relationship alongside humanistic, experiential and cognitive behavioural perspectives to empower individuals to create their own decisions and building blocks for positive change. Veronica approaches therapy through using numerous modalities such as storytelling, expressive arts, sand-tray, animal assisted and play based therapies as well as talk therapy so as to meet the needs of each individual client.

Art therapy is a dynamic and sensitive form of therapy that speaks straight to the source of our human experience. The arts allow us to access our lived experience in a gentle and honest way, externalising our inner worlds within the safety of the marks made within the artwork. The arts enable us to reveal, explore and understand our stories with meaningful clarity and creative precision. In turn promoting a heightened sense of self awareness, well being and optimum opportunity for positive change.

Art therapy is for everyone and some examples might include:
